Sock reaches Wimbledon Final in Men's Doubles

By  | 

Former Wimbledon men's doubles champions Mike Bryan and Jack Sock are into another All England Club final at their first Grand Slam playing together.

The American duo saw off a comeback attempt from 15th-seeded Dominic Inglot and Franko Skugor to win 6-3, 6-1, 6-7 (11), 6-7 (4), 6-4.

Sock and Bryan had six match points in the third set, but were taken the distance.

They will face Raven Klaasen and Michael Venus in Saturday's final after the 13th-seeded South Africa-New Zealand duo defeated Frederik Nielsen and Joe Salisbury 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Bryan has won three Wimbledon titles with his brother Bob, who is absent with a hip injury. Sock won the title in 2014 playing alongside Canadian Vasek Pospisil.

By advancing to the semifinals, the 40-year-old Bryan ensured he will become the oldest player to top the ATP doubles rankings, when they are updated on Monday.
