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.
Janko is officially on fire. Oakley’s blooming Tennis Star claimed his second ATP World Tour victory this past weekend, topping his good friend and Serbian Countryman Viktor Troicki at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, Russia – 6-4, 6-2. After the tour’s first-ever all-Serbian final, Janko, who shot up to an ATP year-to-date No. 10 ranking following the victory, displayed understandably mixed emotions. “It was really tough,” Janko said, sporting his Oakley Prescription/Transition Fast Jacket performance eyewear. “We were both tight. You could cut the tension with a knife. It was like a nightmare to play against your friend.”
The media and commentators focused on Serena Williams. Meanwhile, an overlooked Sam Stosur was well on track to shock the Tennis World. Oakley’s Aussie Tennis Star dominated the former champ – 6-2, 6-3 – in the US Open Final on Sunday, claiming her first-ever Grand Slam triumph after one of the cleanest, most aggressive matches in the sport’s recent history. The victory also handed Australia its first Women’s Grand Slam Singles champ in more than 31 years. But of course, the path to glory was no easy feat.
