NEW YORK (AP) - U.S. Open men’s doubles champions Bob and Mike Bryan and 2011 women’s champion Samantha Stosur are the first recipients of the Grand Slam tennis tournament’s sportsmanship award.

The U.S. Tennis Association announced the honors Monday.

The Bryan twins won their Open-era record 12th Grand Slam doubles title at Flushing Meadows on Friday.

Stosur lost in this year’s quarterfinals to top-ranked Victoria Azarenka.

The USTA sportsmanship award comes with a $5,000 donation to the charity of the winner’s choice.
