They’re still as unstoppable as ever. Oakley’s ATP Star Tennis Duo – Mike and Bob Bryan – sealed their seventh No. 1 Year-End Doubles Ranking for the seventh time in nine years after a first-round victory at the Valencia Open. The match result guaranteed that the vibrant pair could not be overtaken by World No. 2 team Michael Llodra and Nenad Zimonjic. The amazing development comes on the heels of a resounding victory in Vienna last weekend, where the two smashed Max Mirnyi of Belarus and Daniel Nestor 7-6, 6-3 – racking up an 81 percent success rate on first deliveries – with three aces to top it all off.
Another season of America’s favorite past time has come and gone in the blink of an eye. There were glorious highs and the inevitable lows, but none as unexpected as the World Series championship title going home with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Keegan Bradley already smashed his way onto “the map” this year. So it was only a reaffirmation of the talented O Golfer’s bright future when he dropped into Bermuda for the PGA Grand Slam of Golf…and took out the rest of the year’s major tournament winners – emerging 4-under for the victory. Taking on the Port Royal Golf Course alongside fellow O Golf Superstar Rory McIlroy, the two shared the lead after the first day. It was Charl Shwartzel who became the most viable threat after some time passed, however. Rory’s second shot at seven veered far left – setting off events that lead to three bogeys to drop to one-under.
