All-Stanford Semi-Final at U.S. Open Tennis Championships

Sept. 7, 2005

It was an all Stanford semi-final today in the men's doubles competition at the U.S. Open in Flushing Meadow, New York. Former Cardinal's Mike and Bob Bryan, seeded No. 2 in the tournament, defeated another pair of former Stanford tennis players, Paul Goldstein and Jim Thomas, 3-6, 6-1, 6-2, to advance to Friday's final.

The Bryan Twins, who played on The Farm in 1997 and '98, were both two-time NCAA All-Americans who helped the Cardinal win the national title each season. They won the NCAA doubles championship in '98 while Bob won the NCAA singles title in 1998 as well.

The Bryans were teammates with Goldstein on Stanford's 1997 and '98 NCAA championship teams. Goldstein, a four-time All-American, was a part of four straight NCAA championship teams at Stanford from 1995-98.

Thomas played on The Farm from 1993-96, was a member of two NCAA championship teams and was a First-Team All-America in '96.
