On Sunday, the Bryan brothers announced their retirement from the United States' Davis Cup team. Twins Bob and Mike Bryan have participated in the tennis tournament representing the US for almost fourteen years.

Mike and Brian hold the record of winning sixteen grand slam titles together. The 38-year-old duo made the announcement via Instagram with Bob saying, "Mike and I want to formally announce our decision to step down from our role as active members of the U.S. Davis Cup team". They won the Davis Cup for the USA in 2007 calling it "one of the greatest highlights" of their career and first represented the country in 2003.

The duo defeated their compatriot Brian Baker and his Croatian partner Nikola Mektić 6–3, 7–6in the Australian Open's Round of 16 today. They have won six Australian Open together. They have won an Olympics gold medal in London in 2012 and one bronze medal in Beijing in 2008. In mixed-doubles, Bob betters the two winning seven Grand Slams as compared to Mike's four.

The United States is to play against Switzerland in the upcoming Davis Cup tournament next month.
