Ken Skupski on brotherhood in the pros

TENNIS.com Podcast

Sports & Recreation

Ken Skupski is on the show this week to talk all things doubles and brotherhood. The 37-year-old has helped his younger brother Neal on his tennis journey while enjoying a successful and lengthy career himself. After a respectable junior career in England, the Liverpool native took his talents to Louisiana State University where he remains one of the most decorated players in LSU history. He took his skills to the pro tour in 2007 and is currently ranked No. 57, which is 13 spots shy of his career-high ranking.He'd pave the way for Neal, who would also thrive at LSU and join the tour in 2013. While Bob and Mike Bryan were the most prolific doubles duo of all time, the Skupskis fared very well together by reaching eight ATP finals (and winning two of them).The elder Skupski explains why he believed so much in his little brother, what it's like being on tour with three young children at home and what has made British doubles tennis so strong. He also gives his candid take on Neal splitting up with him to team with Jamie Murray at the start of 2020. Watch TENNIS.com Podcast episodes on YouTube and Facebook.
