Mike Bryan is celebrating becoming the first man in the Open era to win 100 doubles titles.

The American, with twin brother Bob, won their fourth title at Monte Carlo on Sunday when they beat Ivan Dodig and Marcel Melo.

Mike therefore becomes the first man in the Open era - since 1968 - to notch a century of doubles titles. Bob is just two behind on 98 - all of those achieved with Mike.

The American greats have always stated that one of their ambitions is to become the first pair to win 100 titles as a pair.

Daniel Nestor, who is still on the tour, and Australian Todd Woodbridge have both won 83 doubles titles, whilst John McEnroe and Tom Okker won 78 apiece.

The Bryans will almost certainly win their 100th title together in the next few weeks. They are in brilliant form - their victory in Monte Carlo was their 21st consecutive win and fifth straight title.
