Bryan Brothers Swing Into Las Vegas For Tennis Camp

A few days ago, former Wimbledon doubles champs Bob and Mike Bryan released a new five track album, Let It Rip. The album comes complete with a new single, Autograph, featuring debut from British tennis star Andy Murray and Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic.

While most critics are advising Murray and Djokovic keep their day jobs, everyone is giving props to the Bryan Brothers for pulling it together. The release of the new album also comes just in time for Camp Bryan 3 on Dec. 12-13 in Las Vegas. The event, immediately following the Zeno/Canon Tennis Challenge in Florida, includes cardio tennis workout, clinics, round robin play, an amateur challenge, a pro-am tournament, and Bryan Brothers Concert.

"I play a lot of pro-am tournaments but Camp Bryan was the best of them all," noted Michael Scott, the winer of last year's Camp Bryan. "The Stirling Club was first class and the competition was high-level. I was fortunate to play with Bob Bryan and win first place. My prize tickets to the 2009 French Open!"

Camp Bryan III will be the last opportunity this year to work on tennis skills with the twins, who have dominated the doubles scene with over 54 tour titles since their first tournament at age six. In fact, at the writing of this post, the Bryan Brothers are currently competing in ATP World Tour Finals, hoping to win the rest of their matches en route to the title and finish the season atop the rankings much like they began the year.

They were ranked first after claiming their seventh Grand Slam title with a 2-6, 7-5, 6-0 win over Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles in the Australian Open final. They hope to be there again.

All funds raised at the camp benefit USTA-NV Junior and Multicultural Tennis Programs. All four courts at The Stirling Club are clay, which offers a better quality of play, easier movement, and a softer surface. (Among the top rated in the city.)

Stirling Club members may participate weekly clinics throughout December. Marty Hennessy, tennis director, is also organizing a Holidays Ladies Round Robin Doubles competition in December.

It's official. Bob and Mike Bryan won the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals to reclaim the year-end No. 1 doubles ranking, beating Max Mirnyi and Andy Ram 7-6 (3), 6-3 in Sunday's final.

It is the third time the American brothers have won the tournament and the fifth time they will end the year as the top-ranked doubles team.
