World No. 1 doubles team, Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, defeated the Indo-Pak Express, Rohan Bopanna and Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi, 7-6(5), 7-6(4) Friday in New York to win their third US Open crown and ninth major title.
Victory at Flushing Meadows wraps up a dream summer for the Americans, who are on a 14-match winning streak after coming into the US Open with back-to-back titles at Toronto and Cincinnati. Since Wimbledon they are on a torrid 22-2 tear.











   
The Las Vegas City Council awarded a contract to CJMS Tennis Management Company to operate the Amanda and Stacy Darling Tennis Center. The Darling Tennis Center is one of the finest public tennis venues in the country, but due to the economy, the city was considering closing it to save money. This agreement allows the center to stay open.

"We are extremely pleased with the efforts of Mayor Goodman, Councilman Stavros Anthony and the city council for doing everything possible to keep the Darling Center a world class facility," said USTA-Nevada Executive Director Ryan Wolfington.

For tennis aficionados and enthusiasts alike the acclaimed International Tennis Hall of Fame, located in Newport, Rhode Island, is a place that should be visited at least once. Home of this summer's Campbell's Hall of Fame Tennis Championships, the International Tennis Hall of Fame holds its own special grandeur. The setting of beautiful coastal Newport is the perfect backdrop to house the mementos and memories of tennis' greatest legends and moments. Equally as fitting that the tournament be hosted on tennis' most elegant surface, grass. As you walk the grounds, you feel the echoes of the sports' past and the presence of the greats who have been there before. It reminds you that tennis truly is a game to love, teach, compete in, and be celebrated.

I still remember the image of a young 10 year old girl just getting started in tennis under the guidance of a 70 plus year old man pacing behind her as she hit hundreds of balls on the Tennis Tutor ball machine. Allen played as a top junior at USC and went on to teach some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. He then spent years in Corporate America but after he retired returned to tennis, his passion.

He was a big fan of Mike Agassi and his ball machine drills, ideas and strategies. Any child that needed help, Allen would help, no charge. This was what led to a 70 plus Allen Tong to train McKay Novak, who had started weeks before, for hours on end. Soon after, McKay went on to be one of the best players in town and still is. In six months Allen's kind heart and ball machine drills took McKay into the #1 spot in the 10's which she eventually duplicated in the 12's. McKay is now a top athlete in the country, a straight A student at Meadows and has had her life altered dramatically by Allen's willingness.
