It’s Doubles Week on Tennis United, and that means double trouble… in more ways than one.

Lucie Safarova and the Bryan brothers kicked off the most recent episode with hosts Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Vasek Pospisil to share some of their most embarrassing stories from the tour.

Safarova and Mattek-Sands, also known as Team Bucie, are a favorite doubles pair on the WTA tour, but that doesn’t mean they know everything about each other… including how to pronounce their names, as it turns out.

Since Bob and Mike Bryan are doubles partners and twins, that means they have double the embarrassing stories. The one shared on this episode had to do with a little "accidental" violence. One got a hit to the head, and one got hit a little… lower. Ouch.


Thankfully, all parties involved in the embarrassing stories are able to laugh about them now.

The segment that garnered the most laughter and surprises included a guessing game in which two players from both the ATP and WTA tours were morphed into one photo. Jack Sock and Rajeev Ram were tasked with guessing who the morphed players were and creating a new name for them, while Mattek-Sands tried to control her laughter. None of the photos had been seen before by Sock, Ram or Mattek-Sands, and you could certainly tell by the looks on their faces.

The game resulted in player names like Kennescu, Tsitsirev, Pliskolina, Thiemwrinka, and finally Bethanie Vasek-Sands. The morphed faces were even stranger than their names, and Sock, Ram and Mattek-Sands had themselves a grand old time seeing their fellow players combined to create new faces.

Sock was quick to capture the evidence of the Bethanie-Vasek photo. “I screenshotted it already.”

“No!!” Mattek-Sands dissolved into laughter again. “That’s terrible.”
