LOS ANGELES: Hometown heroes Bob and Mike Bryan advanced to their 100th career ATP Tour doubles final on Saturday, giving the American siblings a chance to win an all-time ATP doubles record 62nd title.

The Bryans defeated India's Rohan Bopanna and Pakistan's Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi 6-2, 6-4 in 53 minutes a semi-final at the Los Angeles Open, marking the 15th win in a row at the event for the twin brothers.

The Bryans, who seek a sixth Los Angeles doubles crown, are already level with Australian stars Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde for the all-time record for ATP titles by a doubles pairing at 61 crowns each,

The US duo, 5-0 in finals this year, would move past the Woodies into sole possession of the record with a victory Sunday against the winner of a later match pitting Britain's Ross Hutchins and Aussie Jordan Kerr against American Eric Butorac and Jean-Julien Rojer of Netherlands Antilles.
