The Bryans, from Camarillo, did not win a set. The Breakers continued their recent hot play, winning their third Mylan World Team Tennis match in a row, 23-17, over the Wild.

NEWPORT BEACH — Mike Bryan said it's been a whirlwind. That might be the best way to describe a month that has featured Bryan and his twin brother Bob capture their second Wimbledon men's doubles title, then play Davis Cup, and now settle in for a lengthy tour as marquee players in World Team Tennis. Many people don't even use their first names; just saying "the Bryan brothers" suffices. The best doubles team in the world — arguably of all-time — came to Newport Beach on Wednesday night, playing for defending league champion Kansas City.
