Well done, one last win please!

Great news.

They haven't yet won a tournament since they are playing together, have they? That would be a big one to start with for sure!

That would also be a nice way to top Max's wonderful fortnight.



GOOD LUCK MAXI & MAHESH

Mirnyi and Bhupathi Bury Bryan Brothers
by Laura Andriani
Thursday, September 5, 2002

Though most people would believe that Thursday night was reserved for Kid Roddick and Pistol Pete, a select few decided to attend a lesser-known but equally interesting match in the Louis Armstrong stadium. No. 6 seeds Bob and Mike Bryan, the "All-American" twins from Camarillo, California faced No. 3 seeds Mahesh Bhupathi and Max Mirnyi.

Both teams played solidly in the beginning. Although Mirnyi and Bhupathi played a three-set match earlier on in the day, they seemed invigorated and confident in their play. Mirnyi and Bhupathi began the first set with speed and precision, quickly taking the 1-0 lead. Southpaw Bob Bryan, however, stunned the No. 3 seeds with four straight unreturnable serves, each clocking over 121-mph. Play continued in a similar pattern, with the Bryan brothers hanging at the baseline and Mirnyi and Bhupathi swarming the net. Each player held his serve until the eighth game, when Mike Bryan failed to return Bhupathi's drop volley during break point. From there, Mirnyi and Bhupathi controlled the set, outrunning the Bryans and hitting six winners. They took the first set in 26 minutes, 6-3.

The Bryans rebounded in the second set, quickly taking four games, while Mirnyi and Bhupathi managed to eke out only one. Winning 13 of their 16 first service points, the Bryans changed up their strategy and ratcheting up their net appearances. Points were quick, rallies were few, and in only 25 minutes, the Bryans were up 5-2. Bhupathi held strong, and Mirnyi adjusted his serve to hold the set at 3-5. On the next game however, Bob Bryan served for the match and took it with a 115-mph first serve.

The Bryans' serves continued to be lightening quick, and they seamlessly shuffled from side to side in a way that only twins can do. But even in their matching outfits, the twins could not stop speedy Bhupathi nor "The Beast". Just as they were getting comfortable, Mirnyi and Bhupathi put their groundstrokes on rapid fire. They hammered forehands and backhands at the Bryans, who waited at the net like sitting ducks.

Up 4-2, Mirnyi and Bhupathi clinched the seventh game, coming even closer to a spot in the finals.

The Bryans would play their best, holding their serve to trail by two games. But in the end, it was Mirnyi who would lead the way to victory, rifling a 110-mph serve that won him and Bhupathi the match, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.

thanks for the article TH. good luck to Max and Bhupathi!!!

Q. When you've played as few matches as you have over the last two, three months, did you ever lack motivation to go out and practice?

ANDY RODDICK: Motivation? No. I enjoy what I do. I enjoy what I do. You know, I've never been one to, you know, blow off practice or, you know, do anything like that.

You know, I'd be lying if I said I'm looking forward to practicing the next two days as opposed to playing here. That part is gonna suck...(2010 Aegon Championships)

Well done Max and Mahesh

I've heard Max will not play many/ probably any doubles next year as he wants to concentrate on singles so it will be great if he wins the US Open once again

Oh, victory would be even sweeter, then

It will be nice to see Max progressing up the singles rankings!
