No matter what happens between now and then, Bob and Mike Bryan will be there when Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde are inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame at Newport, R.I. shortly after Wimbledon.

The twins are set to eclipse the record 61 doubles titles that the Aussie team won, earning the 60th crown of their careers when they defeated fellow Americans John Isner and Sam Querrey in the final of the Rome Masters at the weekend. Next up is Madrid, and if they win that they will go into Roland Garros knowing they can become the most successful team in the Open era if they win there too.

But they’d rather not crack the record in Paris. "Probably Wimbledon would be the best place to do it because that's TV live back to the states, Centre Court match, so that would be exciting," Mike told the Associated Press.

Once that record is broken, as it surely will be, the Bryans have another record to chase. The Woodies hold 11 major titles, while the Bryans are still lagging behind with eight.
