Citi Taste of Tennis Takes the Court in Big Apple

Last night the Citi Taste of Tennis annual event returned to NYC with a dinner and concert held at Tavern on the Green in Central Park, starring tennis legend John McEnroe and The Johnny Smyth band. The event, which takes place prior to the US Open start every year, also featured appearances by some of the top seeded tennis players in Open including Tokyo 2020 Olympic Gold Medalist Belinda Bencic, The Bryan Brothers: Mike and Bob Bryan, Danielle Collins, Sam Querrey, among other athletes who watched the performances over dinner before taking the court. A celebratory moment for NYC’s return, Taste of Tennis also had performers from Broadway’s Chicago (NaTasha Yvette Williams), Waitress (Emily Koch) and The Wanderer (Michael Wartella Lance Roberts, Jess LeProtto, Jasmine Rogers, Stephen Cerf, Billy Finn) take the stage, teasing the audience before their shows officially reopen next month.
