Andre Silva, the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals Tournament Director, presented the American twins with the ATP World Tour No. 1 Doubles Team presented by Emirates and the ATPWorldTour.com Fans' Favourite presented by Moët & Chandon in an on-court ceremony at The O2 in London.
The Bryan finished as the No. 1 duo in the Emirates ATP Doubles Team Rankings for a fifth successive year and record ninth time overall (2003, '05-07, '09-13).
“This is our biggest goal at the start of the year,” said Mike Bryan. “We have had the best season of our careers and we would like to thank the best coach in the world [David Macpherson] and the support of our wives.”
Bob Bryan admitted, “We are 35 and keep working hard. It doesn’t get old.”
They clinched the year-end top spot on 19 August. The Bryans have won 11 titles – including three major championships and five ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crowns in 2013.
They received 43 per cent of votes to be named the ATPWorldTour.com Fans’ Favourite presented by Moët & Chandon for a record ninth time.
Mike Bryan said, “You are guys around the world are why we play tennis. We really appreciate your votes, so thank you very much.”
