Between the Lines – The Bryan brothers

Bob and Mike Bryan celebrate after defeating Michael Llodra and Aarnaud Clement in the third round.
by Josh Blagden
Saturday 7 July 2012

The Bryan brothers talk wrestling, scrabble and re-incarnation...

Q: What is Mike’s most annoying habit?

Bob: He’s a little selfish and doesn’t like to share that much.


Q: Is he a good cook?

Bob: He doesn’t know how to cook many things. He knows how to throw stuff in the microwave and the toaster, that’s about it.


Q: Have you ever dated the same girl or pretended to be one another?

Mike: The old twin switcheroo?

Bob: No. They’ve mixed us up before.

Mike: The girlfriends have mixed us up from the past but we’ve never done the old switcheroo.


Q: Have you got any phobias or fears?

Mike: I’m kinda scared of heights. I can’t do roller coasters any more. Bob went bungee jumping, so he’s good.


Q: Who would win in a wrestle between the two of you?

Bob: I would, I’ve got an extra 15 pounds on me.

Mike: He would.


Q: What would you most likely argue about?

Mike: Money - usually about who pays for dinner.


Q: What do you like to do outside tennis?

Bob: We’re musicians so we like to jam and hang out with family.


Q: Who would win in a singles match?

Mike: I’m going to say I would and he’s going to say he would.


Q: What’s your head to head record?

Mike: In tournament play we’re like 15-15, but in practice matches I take him down.


Q: Who was your first celebrity crush?

Mike: Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford, we both had the same posters on our walls when we were younger.


Q: What’s your best talent besides tennis?

Mike: My best talent is my ability in Scrabble.

Bob: He’s a good game player.

Mike: I don’t lose in games and love doing iPhone games.


Q: If you were re-incarnated, what animal would you come back as?

Mike: I think you’d (Bob) come back as a snake.

Bob: I’d come back as a bumble bee to sting you (Mike).

20:08It brings me no pleasure but it's time to bring the curtain down for another year. Seemed somehow appropriate to leave the last word to Roger Federer. Thanks a billion for reading. What a fortnight, what a final, fast forward to 2015 please...

20:03"I already have seven. It's not like I need another one. But it would have been awfully nice to have it. I think that's what the feeling was of the people, and I felt that... I know they love tennis. They love tennis after we're all gone."
