Sign of the times.
Although selfies, tweets and Instas deliver pro personal lives (and ice buckets) directly to our homes and phones, getting a pro's autograph can still cause a bit of a frenzy. Nothing like meeting your fav and getting that sig (with a selfie too BIG SCORE).
Steve Johnson, Vasek Pospisil, Coco Vanderweghe and Gael Monfils recently spent an evening meeting with and signing for fans in the NYC Asics store.
Monica Puig also joined James Blake, Sloane Stephens and Jack Sock on the American Express Fan Experience Fan Court at the Open. Autographs all around.
What's old is still gold. There's something magic about that John Hancock. Perhaps it's the story to be told.
Thanks to Kenneth B. Goldberg for the shots in Asics. Find his blog at The Goldberg Report.
