I guess the exception to the rule would be Mischa Zverev and Sasha but it just seems so rare.

I was just watching Moritz Thiem & thinking to myself, how can someone with exactly the same advantages as his brother Dominic be so much worse?

Wow

Like saying why is one brother uglier. Family has no say in ability

On the women’s side there’s the Williams sisters and Pliskova sisters. There might be more, but I don’t really follow.

But it is true that there’s really no sets of brothers that have both proven (yet) they can compete at the top level.

In women the Pliskova's sisters and the Maaleva's in the 90's.
We have the Bryan's in doubles in the men side and the Costa's were nearly the best example in singles.
I add the Sánchez Vicario Brothers in doubles and some great results in singles.
The Coria's are getting better because the younger bro is still playing and with some interesting results this year.
We have the Granollers brothers, the Harrison Brothers, etc etc

The Radwanska's. Urszula reached a higher rank than Kristyna Pliskova.

Didn't Djokovic have a brother who wanted to become pro?

I forgot about them. But the Maaleva's were better overall than the Randwaskas

Novak’s younger brother Markko played mostly futures and I think reached a CH ranking of somewhere just outside the top 500. He did play for the Serbian DC team though.

McEnroe brothers were both very successful tennis players, John was obviously the most successful but Patrick also had a very respectable singles career.

Bryan brothers stand out.

Murray brothers too but there’s no equity between them.

Yep for sure, but the Bryan and Jaimie Murray are far, if not far, in singles.

Renshaw for the fun, well but
highest rank, singles
Gene Mayer: 4, titles 14 -runner up 12
Sandy: 7, 12-12
Tim Gullikson: 15, 4-7
Tom: 34, 1-4

for doubles all, well classified and titles

Yeah, my bad, I omitted „singles” in the thread title.
