Bryans win their first doubles title of the year

   This year is looking a lot like the last one for Bob and Mike Bryan.
   For the second year in a row, the former Stanford All-Americans won Delray Beach for their first title of 2015 after losing in the third round of the Australian Open.
   The 36-year-old Bryan twins, playing near their adopted homes in Florida, edged Raven Klaasen of South Africa and Leander Paes of India 6-3, 3-6 [10-6] on Sunday for their fourth Delray Beach crown and 104th overall.
   The Bryans, who grew up in Camarillo in the Los Angeles area, have won a record 16 Grand Slam men's doubles titles. The 41-year-old Paes has captured eight.
   Klaasen, the baby of the Delray Beach doubles finalists at 32, seeks his first Grand Slam crown. He has reached one major final, last year's Australian Open with American Eric Butorac. In fact, they eliminated the Bryans.
