Bryan Brothers To Retire After 2020 Season - American twins to finish career at US Open

On Wednesday, the most successful doubles team in tennis history, and two of the most decorated American players ever, made a joint statement on Tennis Channel: 2020 will be their final year on tour. Mike Bryan told Tennis Magazine in 2016, when asked about his brother and fellow doubles star, Bob. "We’ll go out together, we’ve got a special bond. We've decided that 2020, at the US Open, we're going to shut it down."
"One more season - and we're excited for it."

When a player announces an impending or immediate retirement, that player is typically well past their prime years and the message is a formality. That couldn’t be further from the Bryans’ situation. The 41-year-old identical twins reached three finals in 2019 and won the prestigious Miami Open, along with Delray Beach. As recently as July, Mike was ranked No. 1 in the ATP doubles rankings and as a team they were ranked #1, 2 or 3 for most of the year. "Mike and I chose to finish our 2019 season after the US Open, even knowing there was a strong chance we’d qualify for the ATP Finals," said Bob Bryan. "After much discussion, we decided that it would be best to rest our minds and strengthen our bodies in preparation for 2020 which will be our final season on the ATP Tour."
