DOUBLES FINAL REVIEW - BRYANS WIN 97TH TEAM TITLE
    Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan won their fifth Houston crown (2007, 09-11) and 97th overall as a duo. It was Mike's 99th individual title.
    The top-seeds extended their winning streak to 17 straight, claiming their fourth consecutive title after hoisting the trophy in Delray Beach, Indian Wells and Miami.
    The Bryans improved to 31-7 all-time on the clay of Houston, improving to 5-1 lifetime against Marrero and Verdasco.
    The Spaniards were seeking their seventh doubles title together.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Bob:
"It was a match that could have gone either way. It gives us confidence going into the (European) clay-court season, beating such a tough clay-court team. They kept us off balance all day with great serving and huge forehands."

Mike:
"We're ecstatic to leave Houston with another title. We've played great tennis in the past and played another this week. That was just a gritty performance against a tough team."

Verdasco:
"They just made one less error than us. It's hard to lose like that, but tennis is like this and you just need to keep going."
