US Tennis warns ‘no Bryan Brothers chest bumps’


PTI, Apr 23, 2020, 9:51 AM IST

Washington The U.S. Tennis Association is warning folks: No Bryan Brothers chest bumps. That was among the suggestions from the USTA on Wednesday, April 22 when it offered return-to-play guidelines to help players and people running tennis facilities know when and how the sport should resume at the amateur level as coronavirus lockdown restrictions ease.

The USTA thinks it will be safe to again play tennis in some cities and states sooner than in others. One of the recommendations is to maintain social distancing by staying 6 feet apart from other people and, therefore, avoiding playing doubles, because it could lead to incidental contact and unwanted proximity.

The group that runs the U.S. Open went on to add: If you do play doubles, avoid all incidental contact, no Bryan Brothers chest bumps, and no whispering to each other from a close distance to strategize.

American twins Bob and Mike Bryan have won 16 Grand Slam titles in men’s doubles together and celebrate wins by jumping simultaneously and bumping chests.

All professional tennis has been suspended at least until mid-July. The U.S. Open is still scheduled to begin main-draw play in New York on Aug. 31.
