I saw a tweet about this earlier today and finally have found the deets! Nike is putting on a promo event in NYC Wednesday and guess who will be there?

Hundreds of tennis fans and youth from New York Parks and Rec, Athletes for Charity, and Mentoring USA will be treated to inspirational tennis tips and guidance from Federer, Nadal, Williams, and McEnroe on Wednesday at 10:15AM with Federer and at 1:30PM with Williams and Nadal.

    And u know it’ll be chaos there. Lucky Serena, who gets to be there with Rafa. Didn’t she say somewhere that she adores Rafa and luvs the way he plays?

    Hope Nike don’t do that Grapple in the Big Apple thing with that freaky boxing promotor. He was teasing Rafa for not speaking a lot at the press conf.

      little does he know that Rafa can be totally chatty Rafa if it only is in the Spanish language…

    Oh what a great event! Serena is definately a fan of Rafa’s she made some comments like she has never seen anyone play with so much intensity like his life depended on it and how much he inspires her etc.. I really don’t mind Serena she says it how it is and isn’t afraid to either..
