has gotten so much better so like college tennis is it I mean it looks like pro
tennis now. These guys were embarrassing me but yeah it’s watching it now on TV
and I watch a lot of Tennis TV just to see and it seems like the game is just
sped up. The physicality has gone to another dimension,” said Bryan.
just seems like they’re moving just like cats to the corners and it’s just the
points are a little bit longer and the guys are swinging harder. I remember
watching Agassi back in 19 like maybe 88 here and there was no one that hit the
ball like him. It sounded like a shotgun the way he hit it. But now everyone’s

just need these flexible bodies that are strong and they all have these like
huge teams behind them,” Bryan said. “If you don’t have a team
working on you, you get injured because it’s just too demanding and to win a
Grand Slam is like running a marathon, you know, like seven marathons.”

can’t just be a talented player, you gotta work just as hard on your body,”
Mike Bryan concluded.
