Next Monday you can kick off the U.S. Open by taking on five-time Grand Slam doubles champions Mike Bryan and Bob Bryan in New York City (http://www.sportsmediainc.com/tennisweek/index.cfm?func=showarticle&newsid=17313&bannerregion).

The ATP is inviting the public to play tennis with ATP doubles teams in 10-minute rotations at a street court set up at the World Financial Center near the marina in lower Manhattan from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 27, the opening day of the U.S. Open.

Martin Damm and Leander Paes and Paul Hanley and Kevin Ullyet are also scheduled to participate in the "Doubles Rules" promotion, an interactive event that showcases the unique attributes of the game and serves as a fundraiser for the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the official charity of the Stanford Financial Group.

Tennis balls and racquets will be available on loan to all participating players or bring your own racquet.

Participants will be asked to make a suggested donation of $10 to be given to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

I'll bet this will be a popular event provided they market it properly. I'd be happy to donate $10 to a great cause for an opportunity to play against a top doubles team if I lived in the area.

Man, I don't know about this... Play against the Bryan brothers? I bet those guys are pretty good. I don't see how I could win, even if I teamed up with a really talented partner...

Why don't you give Johnny Mac a call? You know the old saying that "Johnny Mac and anybody is the best doubles team in the world."? But in this case, I'm not so sure. ;)
