Bob Bryan believes Roger Federer would be the perfect doubles partner for him if he had not paired up with his twin Mike his whole career. In an interview in Mexico City last month, Mike said: "We played Federer seven or eight times in doubles, he has got an all-court game, perfect transition.
So he would be a good guy to have on my side." Mike and Bob will retire after the 2020 US Open. They made this announcement on The Tennis Channel during the ATP Finals in London, getting a lot of people and fans by surprise.
Bob spoke about a long time off he had last year due to injury: "you're going to Disneyland, you don't feel like you're going to pay the price of not practising for a few days. So, yeah, it feels like when you're in the middle of a hard season like there's a price tag attached to any kind of fun moment.
In those few months when my hip was just screwed, I was like, screw it, let's go have some fun. I took a few vacations, went to Key West, we did some stuff that I haven't had the chance to do in my whole career just because a week off, you're going to pay for it at a slam when you need to have that work under your belt.
Yeah, kind of kicked back, no pressure, hanging out with the family, just having great days, enjoying the tour through him, kind of living through that guy. I couldn't believe the stuff he was doing."
