NEW YORK (AP)

American twins Bob and Mike Bryan stayed on track to become the first men's doubles team to complete a calendar-year Grand Slam since 1951, beating Eric Butorac and Frederik Nielsen 6-3, 6-2 in the second round of the U.S. Open on Friday.

The top-seeded Americans have already won four straight majors - the so-called ''Bryan Slam.'' If they repeat at Flushing Meadows, they'll join the Australian duo of Ken McGregor and Frank Sedgman as only the second men's team to take all four in a year.

Their win took a total of 55 minutes and after match point, they celebrated with their trademark chest bump.

They are in search of their 16th major title.
