The Brian brothers have completed their tennis career — Ukrainian News


The 42-year-old twin brothers Bob and Mike Bryana finished their professional tennis performances.

Their doubles duo is the most successful in the history of world tennis, reports BTU.

«In 22 years of professional performances, Briana has 1,100 victories in doubles and mixed doubles, 119 titles and Olympic gold,» the report said.

Before the break in the 2020 season, the brothers managed to win the title at the tournament in Delray Beach and brought a point to their team in the qualification of the Davis Cup Final against the national team of Uzbekistan.

The Bryans reportedly announced their intention to end their performances at the US Open late last year, but the athletes’ plans were disrupted by a pause due to a coronavirus pandemic. Before the resumption of the season, the Brians played in the World Team Tennis team tournament (where they would like to play after the end of their careers), but they never returned to the courts of official competitions.

The first success in the «majors» came to the Americans in 2003 at «Roland Garros». The tennis players’ collection also includes 39 trophies of Masters tournaments. Mike and Bob are the only duo to win the Golden Masters.
