2012 Olympic Mixed Doubles Tennis: Mike Bryan And Lisa Raymond Capture Bronze

Olympic tennis wrapped up action at Wimbledon today. Although the big story was Andy Murray capturing Olympic gold for Great Britain by beating Roger Federer on grass, the local story involved another medal for a Bryan brother. First it was together, as the Stanford twins Mike and Bob won the men's double event and captured gold.

This time, Mike teamed up with 39 year old Lisa Raymond in the mixed doubles bronze medal match. They enjoyed an excellent run to the semifinals, beating Sara Errani and Andreas Seppi of Italy 7-5, 6-3 in the first round and Juan Martin del Potro and Gisela Dulko of Argentina in the quarterfinals 6-2, 7-5. They finally did meet their match in the finals when they lost to Victoria Azarenka and Max Mirnyi of Belarus 6-3, 4-6, (7)-(10). However, they managed to get it together and win their final, beating Sabine Lisicki and Christopher Kas of Germany 6-3, 4-6, (10)-(4).

The Bryan brothers now have three of the five medals for Stanford at these Olympic games.
