SACRILEGE at Wimbledon as Mike Bryan wins a doubles title without his brother Bob, who is recuperating from a hip injury. Having claimed a 17th major doubles title in the company of his countryman Jack Sock, Mike has more now than any other man in history, including one more than his sibling. “A piece of me is sad Bob is not here with us.,” said Mike. “It would be cool if we could play triples.”
SO many ranking points are up for grabs for the SW19 title that Mike Bryan is all but qualified for the end-of-season ATP Tour finals in London with both Sock and his brother Bryan. Having to play against himself with two different teams would bring a whole new meaning to men’s doubles. “Bob and I are looking good for London,” said Mike. “Jack and I are looking good.” His partner cuts to the truth of the matter. “Mike looks good for London. That’s what it is.”
NOVAK Djokovic’s semi-final against Rafa Nadal was an all time classic, so the Serb drew a reference to an all-time classic movie in an attempt to describe the moment, on match point, when he vainly tried to chase down a drop shot from the Spaniard. “ did try to, like in ‘Space Jam’ with Michael Jordan, when he was trying to stretch, that’s something that comes to my mind to describe it.”
ANGIE Kerber likes to keep it real. Though not quite as real as it appeared in a photo which saw her standing waiting for a London bus.
