American Eric Butorac and South African Raven Klaasen upset the Bryan brothers for the second time this year, scoring a 6-4, 6-4 victory in the Memphis final to win their second doubles title together.

Butorac and Klaasen also upset Bob and Mike Bryan in the third round of the Australian Open, en route to the final.

“To get a win over the Bryans solidifies what we did in Australia and we're on the right path to being one of the top teams in the world,” Butorac said. “We need to keep improving and getting better.”

Butorac and Klaasen are currently No. 2  in the 2014 doubles points race.
