Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan have long enjoyed success at the Delray Beach Open by VITACOST.com, winning the title five times. The American twins got off to a good start on Friday in their final visit to this ATP 250 event.
Bryan and Bryan, who will retire after this year’s US Open, battled past Indian Divij Sharan and New Zealand’s Artem Sitak 6-2, 4-6, 10-3 in 69 minutes to reach the semi-finals in Delray Beach. The top seeds were strong on serve in their first match of the tournament, winning 86 per cent of their second-serve points and saving four of the five break points they faced.
It is the brothers’ eighth trip to the semi-finals at this event, and each time they have made the last four, they have advanced to the final. Bryan/Bryan will next play El Salvador’s Marcelo Arevalo and Great Britain’s Jonny O’Mara, who have not dropped a set in the tournament.
