Bryan Brothers To Be Celebrity Chefs In New York For A Pre-US Open Event

Mike & Bob Bryan along with women’s world #1 Victoria Azarenka will headline the 13th Annual BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis to be held Thursday, August 23rd from 7-10pm at the W New York in midtown Manhattan. 




Murray is Off To Toronto, But His Dogs Play With Olympic Medals

Andy Murray's gold and silver Olympic medals didn't stay in his possession long, with his pair of mischievous dogs getting their paws on them in a clever publicity lark.

Photos of the Murray border collies which he shares with live-in girlfriend Kim Sears quickly made an appearance on Twitter as his mutts Maggie May and new dog Rusty proudly posed with the men's singles gold and the mixed doubles silver around their furry necks.


Bryan Brothers Have Scheduled A Trip to Rio In 2016

The London Olympic gold-medal Bryan brothers hope to go prospecting for more precious metal in 2016 when they will hope to still be well into the ATP doubles mix at the outside edge of the tennis career spectrum. When the Rio Games begin in four years, the Californian twins will be aged 38.

"We talked about 2016 is a goal," Mike Bryan told Olympic media. "We want to go to Rio. We’re not the young guys any more, but the training starts today. We're going to get ready for it."
