Bryan Bros. Tennis Fest Add U.S. Stars

Two of America’s top tennis stars will join Mike and Bob Bryan for the popular V-Grid Bryan Bros. Tennis Fest set for Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo.

Currently ranked No. 16 on the ATP World Tour, John Isner will pair with world-ranked No. 25 Steve Johnson against the Bryan Twins on the jam-packed day to raise funds for the Bryan Bros. Foundation. Johnson, who lost to Roger Federer in the Round of 16 at Wimbledon, is from the City of Orange and earlier this summer won his first ATP pro title. He was the No. 1-seeded player at the Hall of Fame Championships in Newport, R.I., last week.

Isner and the Bryan Brothers spent last weekend in the Portland area for the Davis Cup in a quarterfinal tie against Croatia.

Like the Bryan Bros., both Isner and Johnson played college tennis and all four have won individual singles or doubles NCAA championships with Bob and Mike winning the doubles for Stanford in 1998, Bob winning the singles also in 1998, Isner the doubles for Georgia (with partner Antonio Ruiz) in 2005 and Johnson the singles for USC in 2011 and 2012. ‘
