Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan have won 119 tour-level titles together, setting countless doubles records. What has it taken to enjoy so much success?“You’ve got to be crazy to be around someone like this for this long,” Mike said on this week’s episode of Tennis United.“This doesn’t last unless we have the same DNA, the same blood. Our teeth are the same, we’ve got our braces on and off the same day. His retainer fit my mouth, it was just weird,” Bob said. “We’ve been connected at the hip since birth. I think twins are weird. It’s not normal to be this close to someone that’s not your spouse. It’s an unbreakable bond. It had to be a twin relationship for this to last this many years.”[COACHES]Winning on the court is one thing, but maintaining your relationship with a partner is another. It’s unheard of for partners to stay together throughout their careers like the Bryan Brothers have.“You have to be able to be around them all day with the practice, eating lunch. You’re a package deal. It is like a marriage and then you’re going through ups and downs weekly,” Mike said. “When stress gets involved, things could be said and if you lose matches you never want to look in the mirror and say, ‘I could have done this.’ We never had that vibe.”“You play doubles with a guy for a couple years and he starts to get on your nerves and you’re looking for someone new,” Bob added.It was doubles week on Tennis United. Co-hosts Vasek Pospisil and Bethanie Mattek-Sands are both Grand Slam doubles champions. They spoke to several doubles stars, including Rajeev Ram, Jack Sock, Jean-Julien Rojer, Kevin Krawietz, Andreas Mies and Marcelo Melo.“My favourite thing about doubles is [it happens] so quickly,” Melo said. “We can have fun sharing the court with someone. You always have to be ready to make some reflex volleys. You have such entertaining points, so that’s why I love to play doubles and for sure many people do as well.”
