So much going on out in NYC between Wimbledon starting next week and folks drumming up interest for the U.S. Open. If there ever was an argument for me to move out east, it’s how much tennis-mania hits the city in the summer!
You’re already gawking at LES tennis fashion this Saturday, and stopping by the HSBC event on Monday (of course!). One more thing to add to your list: our favorite non-profit, Housing Works (which I’m still waiting for L.A.’s Out of the Closet to mimic), is hosting a tennis tournament this Tuesday at the Roosevelt Island Racquet Club. $50 to play, $20 to watch.
