Paris • Top-seeded Bob and Mike Bryan of the United States will aim for a record 14th major doubles title after beating Alexander Peya of Austria and Bruno Soares of Brazil 6-1, 6-4 in the semifinals of the French Open on Thursday.

On Saturday, the American twins will face Michael Llodra and Nicolas Mahut of France, who defeated Pablo Cuevas of Uruguay and Horacio Zeballos of Argentina 7-6 (4), 6-2.

The Bryan brothers broke for a 4-3 lead in the second set and clinched the victory when Soares hit a service return wide.

The Bryans won their only French title together in 2003. By clinching a 13th major title at the Australian Open this year, they broke a tie with Australian greats John Newcombe and Tony Roche.
