Mike Bryan has married Lucille Williams in California. American ATP stars and personalities in attendance at Mike's wedding included his twin brother Bob Bryan, Mardy Fish and Justin Gimelstob. Mike himself and James Valentine from rock band Maroon 5 (fresh off of a Saturday Night Live stint) played songs on guitar for guests a half-hour before the ceremony began.
Former world number four James Blake married Emily Snider in California. ATP stars in attendance included Andy Roddick, John Isner, Mardy Fish and Robby Ginepri, among other sports and entertainment notables.
The joys of marriage keep coming for ATP players, as Aussie Matt Ebden became the latest to tie the knot at the Secret Garden. Ebden is a frequent doubles partner to budding young gun, American Ryan Harrison.
From the local coaching ranks, a sincere congratulations are in order for Sportime coaching legend Eric Meditz, who is well-known for his "My Opinion" columns in Long Island Tennis Magazine, on tying the knot as well. Meditz can now finally put his focus back on his writing as well as righting the ship with his fantasy baseball and hockey teams which have struggled as Meditz was busy wedding planning.
Novak Djokovic was in Brazil for an exhibition match against Brazilian native Gustavo Kuerte, and during a stoppage of play, Novak noticed a group of young models standing behind his chair. That's when the top-ranked Djokovic sprung into action by removing his shirt and received a "multi-model" massage for the ages … the video can be found online, and if Djokovic wasn't already the idol of young tennis players throughout the world, he certainly will be now.
Caroline Wozniacki snatched a microphone from a reporter during boyfriend Rory McIlroy’s press conference to ask a personal question: “If you win this week, am I going to get a really nice Christmas present?” “Have you not already got a lot of nice presents,” McIlroy responded. Rory then assured his lady that she’s going to have a memorable Christmas regardless of the outcome of this weekend’s tournament. “I have been looking, I have been looking,” McIlroy said. “But it won’t take winning this week to buy you a nice present–I’ll get you a nice present anyway.” This back and forth brought laughs from all in attendance. McIlroy certainly won't have any problem affording a nice gift, as he made in excess of $13 million in PGA and European Tour tournaments alone this year, let alone the millions he rakes in from endorsements.
International Tennis Hall of Famer Chris Evert, Olympic Gold Medalist Lindsay Davenport and tennis commentator Justin Gimelstob will guest star in an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in January on the CBS Television Network.
