Serena Williams joined John McEnroe yesterday to dedicate a refurbished-by-Nike tennis court* at Brooklyn New York's Decatur Playground.
The event images appear a tad surreal given Ms. Williams' unforgettable rage on court at the USO finals. Publicity stunt? Maybe (if not, really really good timing) but I do think Serena's heart is in this cause. Really cute pic below.
Anger management issues aside, for now some deserving kids and adults get a chance to play our game close to home and that's a good thing.
*The new court surface is made out of ground-up Nike shoes.
