The winningest men’s doubles team of all-time will be coming to Atlanta in 2013, with reigning Olympic gold medalists and US Open champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan committing to play in the 2013 BB&T Atlanta Open.
The Bryan brothers hold 82 doubles crowns, more than any other men’s doubles team in history, and their 12 Grand Slam men’s doubles titles are most in the Open era and tied for the most in tennis history with John Newcombe and Tony Roche. The Bryans finished 2012 ranked No. 1 for the fourth consecutive year and for the seventh time in the last eight years.
The BB&T Atlanta Open, an ATP World Tour 250 event, will be the first men’s event on the 2013 Emirates Airline US Open Series schedule.
"We are extremely proud to bring the foremost doubles team in the world to Atlanta," said Tournament Director Bob Bryant. "As the top market in the country for doubles league play, we know Atlanta will be excited to watch the Bryans vie for their first BB&T Atlanta Open doubles title."
