Tennis Bryan Brothers Have Announced their retirement
Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan, the most successful men’s doubles pair in tennis history, are leaving the game the same way they won it – together.
Tennis’s most successful doubles duo, the Bryan brothers, declared to be effective immediately. Identified twins Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, now 42, are leaving the game in the same way they had won tournament after tournament over three decades together.
Bryan leaves the game as the most efficient team in doubles history. He captured an Open Era record 119 trophies in 26 seasons, including all four Grand Slams, all nine ATP Masters levels and Olympic gold medals.
He first climbed to No. 1 in the ATP Doubles Rankings on 8 September 2003. He spent a total of 438 weeks at the helm and finished 10 seasons as the No. 1 team [2003, 2005–07, 2009–2014]. He finished his illustrious career with a win-loss record of 1,108-359.
No other men’s doubles pair comes close to the numbers written by Bryan. Australians Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodford are second in the Open era with 11 Grand Slam titles and 61 Tour titles.
