The Preferred Tennis Sunglasses of The Bryan Brothers
We are beyond thrilled to announce our newest partnership with the most successful doubles duo in tennis history - Mike and Bob Bryan. The brothers are joining our growing tennis ambassador team, which includes fellow multi-Grand-Slam winner Gigi Fernandez (17-time Grand Slam Champion and 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist). The Bryan Brothers bring an understanding that performance doesn’t have to come at the expense of eye health, and vice versa.
Mike and Bob Bryan are the winningest men’s Grand Slam doubles team of all time. Throughout their illustrious career, the pair teamed up for 16 Grand Slam Men’s Doubles titles and 3 Olympic medals. Mike and Bob held the World Number 1 ranking together for a record 139 consecutive weeks and finished as the ATP year-end number 1 doubles team 10 times. Having spent the majority of their career hitting serves and overheads while looking directly into the sun, Mike and Bob know all too well the difference high quality sunglasses built for tennis can make.
“We’re very happy to partner with RIA Eyewear. RIA has developed cutting edge lens technology, specific to helping tennis players see the ball better while protecting their eyes from harmful UV rays. Mike and I both feel it's very important to wear high quality sun protection while on court and RIA is delivering just that,” said Bob Bryan. “Keeping your eyes comfortable and healthy while spending long hours hitting in the sun is one of the keys to being able to continue playing a lifelong sport like tennis into your later years. Partnering with a company like RIA who prides itself on delivering high quality products was a no-brainer. Their lens clarity is unparalleled and can stand up to some of the most humid conditions we’ve ever played in,” Mike added.
Having watched the Bryan Brothers throughout their career, we are over the moon to partner with these two legends of the game. Mike and Bob bring with them a shared vision for game changing technology along with a unique understanding of the importance of eye health. The duo understand that performance doesn’t have to come at the expense of eye health and vice versa - with high quality sunglasses tennis players can actually see the ball better while staying protected on court.
The addition of the Bryan Brothers to Team RIA comes at a perfect time, as we prepare to add a number of new performance frame styles in 2023 in response to the overwhelmingly positive reception of our Court HD+ lens technology by tennis players all over the country.
