Santoro & Zimonjic Snap Bryans' Streak to Win Rome
Sixth seeds Fabrice Santoro & Nenad Zimonjic snapped the 17-match winning streak of top seeds Bob and Mike Bryan to win the Internazionali BNL d'Italia on Sunday with a 6-4, 6-7(4), 10-7 (Match TB) win.
Santoro & Zimonjic will jump to fifth from eighth in the Stanford ATP Doubles Race.
Santoro & Zimonjic were headed for a straight-sets win when they led by a set and a double break at 6-4, 3-0 before the Bryans hit back to force a Match Tie-break. The Bryans also rallied from 2-6 in the Match TB to level the decider at 7-7 before Santoro & Zimonjic won the last three points of the match to claim their second title (Dubai) of the year.
Santoro captured the 2005 Rome title with French compatriot Michael Llodra, when he also defeated the Bryan brothers. Santoro & Zimonjic avenged their semifinal loss to the Bryans earlier in the year in Miami.
Santoro said: "We are very happy to win our first Masters Series title together. Beating the Bryans is always something special because they are the No.1 team in the world. They are playing really well and to beat them you have to be at your best.
"At 6-4, 3-0 up we thought the match was over but it was not at all. The Bryans came back strong but in the end we were able to pull it out."
The Bryans, who were chasing their sixth title of 2007, suffered just their third loss of 2007 (29-3). But they extended their commanding lead at the top of the Stanford ATP Doubles Race. They slipped to 38-23 lifetime in ATP finals.
They had been on a 17-match winning streak, including consecutive ATP Masters Series titles in Miami and Monte-Carlo.
