A caption in King Vidor's silent classic from 1928, "The Crowd," reads: "Marriage isn't a word. It's a sentence. " The couples in "Mixed Doubles: An Entertainment on Marriage," a multi-playwright piece from 1969 enjoying an effective revival at Performance Workshop Theatre, have all been altered in some way by the life-term aspect of matrimony, the weight of that whole for-better-or-worse thing. It even affects the first twosome to appear, in "A Man's Best Friend" by James Saunders.

WIMBLEDON, England -- It isn't every day that a man from Zimbabwe and a woman from Baltimore team up on the tennis court."And at first, I wondered, should he ask me because he's the man? Or should I ask him because I'm older? Or should he ask me because he's ranked higher? Or should I ask him because I've won more titles?" said Pam Shriver, explaining how she arrived here teamed with Byron Black, the No. 1 doubles player in the world. "Well, I'm not shy."But she didn't exactly ask him personally.

COLLEGE PARK -- Atholton coach Rick Jones said his mixed doubles team of John Healey and Julia Southerland had a "chip on their shoulders" ever since they were seeded fourth in the Howard County championship. The two used that snub as motivation as they went on to win the county title, a regional title and then capped their undefeated season yesterday with a state championship at the University of Maryland. Healey, a freshman, and Southerland, a sophomore, were the only players from the Baltimore metropolitan area to make it to a championship game in tennis.

Bob Bryan. Mike Bryan. Two bodies. Two minds. One entity. "Double Delicious," said People magazine, when it named the world's No. 1 doubles team to its list of Sexiest Men Alive. "It's cool," Bob said. "We've gotten more attention from that than for our tennis." "It's embarrassing," Mike said. "Until now, no one has thought of us as being sexy. The little ballgirls are about the only ones who think we're cute. My girlfriend loves it, but she doesn't want us to get too big, either, afraid I might leave her, but that's not going to happen."

Pam Shriver's Mercantile Tennis Challenge has always been about raising money to help children's charities in her hometown, and for Baltimore tennis fans, that has always translated into seeing the world's top singles players. But on Dec. 6 at 1st Mariner Arena, Shriver is planning a different kind of tennis treat. Yes, there will be a singles match, but the star attraction will be Bob and Mike Bryan, the No. 1 doubles team in the world. "They're the team that rejuvenated men's doubles," Shriver said from her California home this week.
