Over 22 years, the Bryan Brothers established themselves as the greatest doubles team in history.
We are so proud of CrashCourse advisors Bob and Mike Bryan, who have just announced their retirement. Affectionately known as the Bryan Brothers, Bob and Mike have won all four Grand Slams (12 such titles over-all), every ATP World Tour Masters 1000 title, the ATP World Tour Finals and the Davis Cup. They won the gold medal in the 2012 London Summer Olympics and the bronze medal in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
They attended Stanford University and helped lead the team to NCAA titles in 1997 and 1998. Together, they won the NCAA doubles title in 1998 and Bob won the NCAA singles title. They finished the year ranked No. 1 in the collegiate doubles rankings.
“No two people have done as much during their playing careers for the sport of tennis. Their competitive enthusiasm has been unmatched. But of even more relevance is how they have achieved what they have – always with passion, integrity and class, as they constantly and selflessly give of themselves to make sport better! I am so very proud of them.”, says the Bryan brother’s Stanford Tennis Coach and TeachAids Vice Chairman Dick Gould.
In addition to tennis, the Bryan brothers are the founders of The Bryan Bros. Foundation, a nonprofit with the mission of providing educational and sports opportunities to children in need. They are also valued members of the CrashCourse advisory board, providing their expertise in athletics as TeachAids works to change the way young people understand concussions.
