Defending champions Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan captured their third Monte Carlo trophy on Sunday, defeating second seeds Max Mirnyi and Daniel Nestor 6-2, 6-3. The victory marked their 20th ATP World Tour Masters 1000 team title.

The American twins won 79 per cent of their first serve points and capitalized on three of their five break point opportunities to secure the win in just 57 minutes.
"It feels nice to win again in Monte Carlo, especially against two legends, Danny and Max," said Bob Bryan. "They've been playing great the last 15 months and hopefully we'll all get to play in many more big matches."
The top-ranked Bryans did not drop a set en route to their second triumph of the year, having won their season-opening tournament at Sydney. They improved to a 77-42 final record. .

"It's been a great couple weeks in Monaco with the Davis Cup and now the Monte-Carlo Masters 1000 event," Mike Bryan said. "It's always a pleasure to see Prince Albert II who we have enjoyed getting to know through the years and the beautiful scenery. We couldn't ask for a better place to win our 20th Masters 1000 title." Excerpted from ATP World Tour.

Team Darling
By Zach Brandt

With every high school tennis season comes great expectations for the entire valley. The 2011 season for the Palo Verde Panther tennis team was no exception. The team was coming off back to back Nevada State Championships and senior Tanner Berkabile and junior Ozzy Abraham were preparing to defend their State Doubles Title. The Panthers added some key freshman players in Kota Cook, Teijiro Nishimura, Rhett Bossung and Conor Safbom. Returning starters Pascal Nilsson and Zack Surmacz added some solid experience and depth to the young panther lineup. The Palo Verde Panthers only returned 4 starters from the previous season.
