Mike Bryan continues to excel at the U.S. Open, even without his twin brother and longtime doubles partner, Bob.
Bryan and Jack Sock, who stepped in earlier this year when Bob went down with a hip injury, moved into the men’s doubles final with a 6-2, 6-7 (1), 6-4 win over the Colombian team of Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah on Thursday.
It was the 11th consecutive win in a Grand Slam match for the pair that has become known as “Team Brock.”
They hope to add the U.S. Open title to the Wimbledon championship they won in July in Just their second event together. They will face seventh-seeded Luke Kubot of Poland and Marcello Melo of Brazil, who won the day’s first semifinal, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-3 over Radu Albot and Malek Jaziri.
In the women’s doubles semifinals, the 13th-seeded pair of CoCo Vandeweghe and Ashleigh Barty upset the top-seeded duo of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova 6-4, 7-6 (6). Vandeweghe and Barty will face Kristina Mladenovic & Timea Babos.
