DOUBLES FINAL - BRYANS DEFEAT COLOMBIAN DUO FOR 96TH TITLE

Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan needed 90 minutes to defeat Cabal and Farah, notching their 96th title as a team, 28th at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 level and third in Miami (2007-08).
It was the third title in five weeks for the American tandem, giving them their first Indian Wells-Miami double. They hoisted their second BNP Paribas Open trophy earlier this month.
The top seeds extended their winning streak on the ATP World Tour to 13 straight.
Cabal and Farah were the first South American team to reach the Miami final in tournament history.
The Colombians were contesting their eighth final together and fifth in 2014, with their lone title coming in Rio de Janeiro in February (d. Marrero/Melo). They also advanced to the final in Brisbane, Vina del Mar and Sao Paulo.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Bob: "This is incredible for us, especially to win in such a hostile environment. There were a lot of Colombians out there. They were bringing the noise. Juan and Robert should play Davis Cup here because the Colombian fans are loud. They had the flags out.

"We're pumped. I now live in South Florida, so I'm starting to get a lot of family over here and a lot of friends. Our ticket requests were huge. It's great to put on a good show for them and hoist this trophy. It's been a while."

Mike: "This is a match we'll remember for a long time. The crowd support was unreal for both teams. The first set was pivotal and it was huge to save those set points. Bob and I are very excited to play so well and win Miami again for a third time!

"Hats of to the Columbians on a great tourney and start to the year. We hope to continue this form into Houston and the clay court season.
