US Open 2013 Gear Check: the Bryan Brothers

The Bryan Brothers are always the team to watch in any major, but being on US soil, you know the twins want to add another US Open title to their already amazing career. Let’s take a look at what Mike and Bob are wearing and using during this year’s US Open.

TENNIS: Sept 1 US Open

Bryan Brothers in action at the US Open by Cynthia Lum

Their apparel: Mike and Bob are the perfect ambassadors for the California grown company, KSwiss. This year at Flushing Meadows, they are flourishing on court in lots of color in the KSwiss Fall Spliced Crew in the bright yellow color. This 100% polyester crew is lightweight and keeps them cool on the court. They pair this crew with the KSwiss Basic Training Woven Short which are lightweight and comfortable on court. Under their shorts, they are wearing a compression short from Under Armour that keeps their muscles warm and helps with a quick recovery. They round out their look with the KSwiss BigShot II in the black and yellow colorway. This durable, yet lightweight shoe is more stable, more breathable and more comfortable than its predecessor.

Their equipment: When it comes to finding a racquet that serves the twins aggressive net play, solid returns, and dynamic doubles play, the Bryan brothers find the Prince EXO3 Rebel 95 to do just that. The tight 18×20 string pattern provides control from all areas of the court with a stable feel. At net, this racquet helps provide precise control with quick access to touch; while on serve, this faster feeling racquet is easy to generate both pace and spin. They keep their hands nice and dry with Tourna Grip Original Overgrip. They string it up with Prince Beast XP 17 blended with Prince Natural Gut 16 for the perfect feel for this doubles duo.

Enjoy the Open! And play with heart,

Michelle
