While the Bryan brothers have the world’s No. 1 ranking and are coming off another Grand Slam doubles title at the Australian Open two weeks ago, the Brazilian pair of Melo and Soares hold a 2-1 edge on the U.S. pair. The four players met for a fourth time this past December when they played an exhibition match in Brazil. The Bryan brothers were victorious in three sets.
“This is a team that has beaten us before,” Bob Bryan said. “We really respect them. But yeah, it’s going to be a war.
“These guys are both top-20 players, both won tournaments this year, so they’re playing well. We know what we have to do. We feel good. We have some momentum coming here from Australia. But that definitely doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy.”
