The inaugural World Tennis Day was celebrated around the world yesterday. Specific attention was paid to high profile events in Hong Kong and in New York City. A similar exhibition was also held in L.A.
The stars on the day included Caroline Wozniacki and Agnieszka Radwanska in Hong Kong. In New York it was Rafael Nadal, Juan Martin Del Potro, Victoria Azarenka and Serena Williams. And in LA Novak Djokovic was the headliner along with James Blake, Pete Sampras, the Bryans and Mardy Fish who returned to play his first match since the US Open.
As with most exhibitions, the matches were short on real drama and competitiveness, but long on tweeners and tons of fun. Here are some of the highlights:
