Michael “Mike” Carl Bryan is a professional tennis player from America. He was born on April 29, 1978 in Camarillo, California, United States and has a twin brother who also plays tennis named Bob. The younger of the twins (only by two minutes), Mike, stands at 6 feet 3 inches tall, and has played for Stanford University. Together with his brother and father, Mike plays the drums in a band called “The Bryan Brothers Band”.
Together with his brother, Mike helped the Stanford Cardinals win successive NCAA championships. There is no doubt that his partnership with his brother has been an immensely successful one. As children, their parents had disallowed the twins to compete with one another. This rule was carried until they grew up which led to the twins taking turns at who would take defaults when the time came where they faced each other.
This non-competition between the twins has been much admired by fans and audiences and even today, their rule stays the same. However, there was an instance where Mike and Bob faced each other for the first time. This was in 2002 where Mike and Bob played mixed doubles. The result was that Mike and his partner won against Bob and his partner.
Throughout the course of Mike Bryan’s career, he has a record of 5-11 as a singles player. However, as a doubles player (with his trusted partner, Bob), his record shines quite brightly. So far, Mike Bryan has a total of 77 titles with a career record of 712-230. They have 13 Grand Slam doubles titles and 3 Tour Finals titles. He is currently ranked at No. 1 in men’s doubles.
