Good win. Fyrstenberg/Matkowski next. Battle of the [only] seeds.

Bob's blogging for the tourney site:

March 19, 2009 - Bob Bryan

Hello Tennis Fans,

I’ve been asked to write a short blog during the last few days of the BNP Paribas Open. I just wanted to start by saying that it’s been an excellent tournament so far.

The weather has been fantastic. It’s been nice and sunny during the day and it cools some off at night, but more importantly, the winds have stayed away which is great for the tennis.

Mike and I really love coming to Indian Wells to play in this event. For the last few years, doubles gets more interest than usual because many of the top singles players like Federer and Nadal use this tournament to play doubles.

Besides Federer and Nadal, players like Del Potro, Nalbandian, Gonzalez, Gasquet, Monfils, Robredo, Fish and Roddick all entered the doubles this year. It was great to see such a strong doubles draw and it really pumped Mike and me up. It’s also great for the fans, who have the opportunity to watch great doubles.

Many of the players really enjoy playing here and one of the reasons why, are the fans. They really come out and support the players and the tournament. The players greatly appreciate playing before a big crowd and you can feel the excitement. Without all of their support, it certainly wouldn’t be the same.

The stands were packed when we played Federer and Allegro in our first match. In our second match on Tuesday night, the fans really filled up Stadium 2 for our match against Nadal and Lopez. I would like to thank everyone who came out and not only supported us, but came to watch doubles. The atmosphere was amazing. We could feel the buzz.

It’s different playing doubles against the top singles players like Federer and Nadal, who will probably go down in history as two of the all-time great players. We really have a lot of respect for them. Mike and I have played against them many times,

In our matches against them, it takes us a little while to focus on the ball before we find our rhythm. When we play matches like this against the top players, we go into every match with a game plan. We’ve had to improve every year because the other guys have gotten better at playing doubles.

This year Mike and I made winning this tournament one of our goals. During our career, we’ve won each of the majors that make up the Grand Slam and we won the Davis Cup. We’ve also won every ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament except for, you guessed it, the BNP Paribas Open.

We’ve played this tournament every year since 1999 and we’ve come close to winning, but each time we’ve come up short. It’s always been something. Mike’s been sick a few times and once when we made the finals, we were up a set and a break and lost.

It’s been disappointing not only for us, but for friends and family who come and watch us. One thing is for sure, if we were to win this tournament it would be very, very satisfying.

That’s about all for today. If you’re at the tournament for the night session, Mike and I are playing the Polish team of Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski.

Have a great day everyone.

Bob Bryan

Tight second set, if the scoreline is anything to go by, though they blasted them in the TB. Come on, Bob/Mike -- the title is so close!!

Speaking of mixed doubles, I would've loved to see Bob when he played with Venus at Wimbledon a few years ago. Wish they'd team up again. I'd be so amused if there ever was a Bob/Venus and Mike/Serena match-up.

Well, one half of the all-American brawl made it. Now just for this half.

If the Bryans are able to pull it out tonight, I'll be torn who I want to win tomorrow.
