Jamie's win made up for Andy's unexpected first round loss in the singles at Queens Club earlier in the week.
Last year, Andy and Jamie became the first brothers to top the world rankings in singles and doubles at the same time.

Andy's always said he'd like to, but whether he follows through or not, I don't know!
