Mike Bryan, part of the most successful doubles team in men's history, says that he would like to have a daughter after the birth of his first child - a son - in recent weeks. Mike and his wife Nadia welcomed their first child - Jake - a few weeks ago.
Speaking on the Tennis Channel, Mike spoke about his family. “I think he’s going to be a righty, unfortunately. I wish he had that left slicer. “I’m having a blast, it’s the best. It’s good to join the father league, so I’m really pumped to finally do this thing at 42.
I waited a little bit. Now it’s time to get the girl. Let’s make it a mixed doubles team”. "These nights aren’t the smoothest nights, for sure. Nadia’s been getting the graveyard shift. I’ve been doing the mornings.
Just gotta keep this little guy alive, get him through the first couple weeks”. Mike and twin brother Bob - jointly known as the Bryans - have been the world No. 1 doubles player for more than nine years. Mike holds the records for the most Grand Slam doubles titles at 18, the most ATP men's doubles titles (123), and the most weeks (506) ranked number one.
He has won all but five of his doubles titles with his brother; with Jack Sock, he won two majors and the year-end championship in 2018.
