Jamie Murray, Bruno Soares win second Grand Slam doubles title at US Open

Jamie Murray of Britain and Bruno Soares of Brazil won the US Open doubles championship Saturday for their second Grand Slam title this year, beating Spaniards Pablo Carreno Busta and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-2, 6-3.

The No. 4-seeded Murray and Soares, who won the Australian Open in January, dropped only one service game and won 71 percent of first-serve points against their unseeded opponents.

They are the first winners of multiple major men's doubles titles in a season since Bob and Mike Bryan won three in 2013. Murray and Soares only teamed up late last year.

Murray says he's accomplished something his more famous brother, Andy, has not: two Grand Slam titles in a year.

Murray and Soares reached the final after taking out the top-seeded team of Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut, who were the defending champs.
