Tennis Identity

World Tennis Day in NYC. Working the floor.

World Tennis Day spread fuzzy yellow love around the globe with exhibitions in Hong Kong, London and New York City. I hit the BNP Paribas Showdown at  Madison Square Garden. Funny little trend below, Djokovic, J. Mac and Murray all managed to give that MSG floor a little extra attention.

Next generation U.S. Juniors Francis Tiafoe and Reilly Opelka kicked off the night, hitting hard and staying upright.

Bryans v. McEnroes was next. That one had a predictable result (sorry Mcs). Seriously, the Bryans are currently #1 in the world. The winning grey black kit also goes to the Bryans. I was so hoping Mac would wear this shirt. Might have been interesting to split them all up too.

Djokovic and Murray were next. Novak won in two. Good stuff though. Below, self inflicted punishment for missing a bread and butter shot.
