LONDON — The Bryan Slam is complete. Twin brothers Mike and Bob Bryan captured their fourth straight major Saturday at Wimbledon with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 victory over Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo.

The Americans won their 15th Grand Slam tournament and became the first men's team in Open-era tennis to hold all four Grand Slam titles at the same time. They're also the first to hold all the slams and an Olympic gold medal.

If they win the U.S. Open, they'll join Ken McGregor and Frank Sedgman as the second men's team to complete a calendar Grand Slam. The Aussie duo did it in 1951, 17 years before the Open era began.

The Bryans fell behind 5-0 in dropping the first set but rallied for their 24th straight victory.
