Extractions: Instead, the brothers went belly up in a hotly contested, three-set loss, 5-7, 6-0, 7-5. The Bryans, the No. 2 seeds, were looking for their 14th career doubles championship and second Grand Slam title to the family resume; earlier this year, they won the crown at the French Open in Paris. But in New York, they ran into the veterans Bjorkman and Woodbridge, who battled back from a first-set deficit to take the title, their fourth Grand Slam as a team. But the Bryans suffered a letdown in the second set. Listless and ineffective, they got bageled by the Aussie and Swede, 6-0. Woodbridge, at 33, is still one of the great doubles specialists in the game, while Bjorkman continues to plays both doubles and singles; he's ranked No. 44 in singles and made it to the round of 16 here. After the match, Bjorkman and Woodbridge spoke about doubles, which some tournaments have threatened to cut back. "In actual fact, at all the tournaments Cincinnati, Miami, all of the Masters Series [during] the first four days, the doubles are among the best-attended [matches] on the outside courts. They're the tennis fans that are there at that time," Woodbridge said. "Doubles isn't a problem that needs to be fixed; it's the whole picture that needs to be fixed. It's creating more stars, it's creating better publicity, all of the things that go with marketing and creating tennis as a property," he continued.

He won the mixed doubles title with Helena Sukova in 1994. The Woodbridge File (PDF) Woodbridge Reflections in DEUCE Magazine I decided to call it a day, said Woodbridge. I think that I've had a pretty good run. I really wanted to come here and go for 10 titles. Things didn't work out according to plan. "I had always planned to play my whole year out this year, but my partnership with Mahesh Bhupathi didn't go as we would have hoped. I didn't even come to this tournament planning to retire. But I felt I had so many good, strong memories here, it was the right place to do it and the right time in my career to do it. Woodbridge turned professional in 1988 and made his ATP debut in doubles in Adelaide with countryman Jason Stoltenberg. After reaching his first final later that year in Madrid with his fellow Australian, Woodbridge captured his first career ATP doubles title in 1990 in Casablanca with Simon Youl.
