Andy Murray and Bruno Soares are the US Open doubles champions. The fourth seeds defeated the Spanish combination of Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-2, 6-3 to win their second major of the year, book-ending the “Grand Slam” season as they also won the Australian Open in January.
The Brit and the Brazilian are the first tandem to win multiple majors in the same year since Bob and Mike Bryan last achieved that in 2013. Carreno Busta and Garcia-Lopez were the first unseeded team to reach the final since 2000.
Murray is the first British man to win the US Open doubles title since Roger Taylor in 1971 and Soares has become the first Brazilian man to win multiple doubles majors and the first from there to win the US Open.
