Brothers?

The Murray Brothers can take home the singles and doubles titles today. Does anyone know when was the last time two brothers took the titles?



Any help is appreciated.

Re: Brothers?

It must be some time ago, as the last brothers to have reached the finals were Byron and Wayne Black in Chennai 1999.

Re: Brothers?

Famous brothers played one single final

John McEnroe defeated Patrick McEnroe 3-6,6-2,6-4 (Chicago 1991 final)

Re: Brothers?

^ That was a good fact!

Anyway, I got my answer...

"The Murrays became the first brothers to win singles and doubles at the same ATP Tour event since 1989. The last brothers to achieve the feat were Emilio and Javier Sanchez, in Kitzbuhel, Austria."
