My friend Leah and I went to the US Open tennis tournament today hoping to see favorite players.
Me, Djokovic at the practice courts. Her, Verdasco in his early round match. We were both successful. (Leah even shook Verdasco’s hand.)
But we did not expect to meet Jack Sock’s aunt and uncle on the train platform on our way back into the city!
But we did.
They were chatting with friends and were curious about the matches that were still in progress. And since both of us were intent on our cellphones, they asked for an update.
We ended up talking until we arrived at Penn Station.
I think that counts as yet another sports celebrity encounter — don’t you?
