Jack Sock of the United States plays a return to Matteo Berrettini of Italy during their men's singles match at Wimbledon last week. In doubles, Sock and Mike Bryan have reached the Wimbledon finals.

Lincoln native Jack Sock, a 2014 Wimbledon champion in men's doubles, is back in the finals in London after fending off a comeback attempt with Mike Bryan in the semifinals Thursday.

Sock and Bryan, both of whom have won Wimbledon doubles titles — just not with each other — are into another All England Club final at their first Grand Slam playing together.

The American duo held off 15th-seeded Dominic Inglot of Great Britain and Franko Skugor of Croatia to win 6-3, 6-1, 6-7 (11), 6-7 (4), 6-4.

Sock and Bryan had six match points in the third set, but were taken the distance.

They will face Raven Klaasen and Michael Venus in Saturday's final after the 13th-seeded South Africa-New Zealand duo defeated Frederik Nielsen and Joe Salisbury 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

Bryan has won three Wimbledon titles with his brother Bob, who is absent with a hip injury. Sock won the title in 2014 playing alongside Canadian Vasek Pospisil.

With a win Saturday, Sock would have his fourth doubles title of 2018 — with four different players.

Sock reached Wimbledon's third round in mixed doubles with Sloane Stephens before losing.
