   The festivities kick off with Breakfast at Wimbledon on Oct. 2 at 9 a.m., followed by a clinic and chalk talk with Bob and Mike Bryan (Stanford, 1997-98), lunch, a doubles challenge with flight winners facing the Bryans, and an afternoon barbecue. Dinner and a performance by the Bryan Brothers Band are set for 6:30 p.m. 
   The Grand Slam Clinic, Oct. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., includes Breakfast at Wimbledon, a two-hour clinic with the Bryans, a buffet lunch, photos and autographs.
   Proceeds from the event benefit the Tennis Coalition SF, which led the campaign to renovate the Goldman Tennis Center (GTC) and now supports the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department's Tennis and Learning Center program and works to create access to GTC for all San Francisco youth and families.
   The Bryan brothers retired last year at 42 after winning a record 16 Grand Slam men's doubles titles in their 22-year career.
