Bob Bryan, a lefty, and his twin brother, Mike, are set on becoming the winningest doubles team in U.S. Davis Cup history.
Their win against Sweden in the semifinals was their 12th in Davis Cup and leaves them two victories from tying the all-time U.S. mark.
The brothers began the 2007 season by defending their Australian Open title for their fifth Grand Slam tournament crown.
Last year, they completed the career Grand Slam in doubles by capturing the Wimbledon championship in their record seventh straight appearance in a major final.
“We want to stack up against some of the great teams,” says Bob, who leads the team’s attack with his big serve. “By winning all four, that put us in the history books. Still, Davis Cup’s big for us. We always want to play well at Davis Cup.”
Bob also excels in mixed doubles. At the 2006 US Open, he teamed with Martina Navratilova to win that title for the third time.
