Already considered among the greatest doubles teams in tennis history, Bob and Mike Bryan completed the Golden Slam—winning all four Grand Slam tourneys, plus the Olympics—with a 6–4, 7–6 straight sets win over France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Michael Llodra in the gold medal match at Wimbledon.

Match point proved worth the excitement, as Bob Bryan chased a Tsonga slam nearly into the royal box before returning it with an over-the-shoulder lob that kept the point alive.
