In 2005 the twins were runners-up at the Surbiton Challenger, played in the main draw of the Nottingham Open and competed at the Wimbledon Championships. At Wimbledon they entered the draw as wildcards and were eliminated in the first round by the tournament’s top seeds, Jonas Björkman and Max Mirnyi. Straight after his Wimbledon appearance, Barker won a Challenger title at Forest Hills, partnering American Huntley Montgomery, after which he attained his career best ranking of 161. This was however to be his final professional tournament. Both brothers retired from tennis, as they didn’t see a future for the doubles format. To counter this, they were the driving force behind a class-action lawsuit which sought an injection to stop the ATP’s planned changes to doubles. The lawsuit, which gained support from several high profile doubles players including the Bryan brothers, was filed in a U.S. District Court in Houston during the 2005 US Open. At the end of the year the ATP announced that the third set would be replaced by a first-to-10 tiebreak while also removing ad-scoring.
