2012 U.S. Open Scores: Bryan Brothers Leading Men's Doubles Final

No. 2 Bob and Mike Bryan are leading the 2012 U.S. Open men's doubles final in the second set over No. 5 Leander Paes and Radek Stepanek, 6-3, 5-3.

The Bryan brothers have won 11 Grand Slam titles as a doubles team and three U.S. Open titles in 2005, 2008 and 2010. Their last Grand Slam title came at Wimbledon in 2011, though they won the men's doubles gold medal at the 2012 Olympics.

They lost in the final of the 2012 Australian and French opens, losing the Australian to Paes and Stepanek, and in the semifinal earlier this year at Wimbledon.

Friday's Grand Slam final is the second as a team for Paes and Stepanek. The other final, as noted above, was in the 2012 Australian Open, which Paes and Stepanek won over the Bryans, 7-6 (1), 6-2. Paes has won seven Grand Slam doubles titles: three with Mahesh Bhupathi, three with Lukas Dlouhy, and one with Stepanek.
