KBOI 2 Exclusive: Bryan brothers on Davis Cup
BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - The Davis Cup gives the Treasure Valley a look at some of the best tennis players in the world, two of them just happen to be twin brothers and doubles partners on Team USA.

Bob and Mike Bryan crashed Crane Creek Country Club Monday afternoon to hit, and get ready for this week's action.

KBOI 2 Sports caught up with them after the workout, and found out the Davis Cup was one of the reasons they got into the sports which they now dominate.

"We were inspire to play tennis, basically, when we went to see Davis Cup when we were ten years old. We actually watched our coach here, Jay Berger, play down in La Costa. We had our faced painted, we had flags in our hats. Just the excitement and the energy of Davis Cup made us pick up the racquet, and luckily we're here playing for the U.S. now," said Mike Bryan.

The brothers say they hope they're able to return the favor, and inspire young athletes when they take the court for the Davis Cup quarterfinals later this week.
