Bob and Mike Bryan won the US Open 2012 doubles title after beating Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek 6-3 6-4.
The second-seeded Bryans had entered the U.S. Open tied with Australia's Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde for 11 grand slam doubles titles.
“When you're in the heat of the moment you don't want to think about that stuff. We're just trying to win the Grand Slam,” Mike Bryan said. “And now that we could chill a little bit, it's fun to have it. We looked up to the Woodies, and to break some of their records is unbelievable, because we idolise those guys. They're one of the reasons we play doubles. Just to be mentioned with those guys is pretty special. But to have a huge record like the Grand Slam record is really cool.”
“We weren't thinking too much about revenge today,” said Bob Bryan /they lost to Paes and Stepanek at the Australian Open). “We were just thinking about playing a good match and executing the scouting report our coach gave us and winning our home slam in front of all these fans that were pumping us up the whole day.”
