Ok, which player did this?

Obviously someone who uses Wilson racquets...I think this party took place right before USO.

http://www.smashtennismag.com/c1.html
SMASH / Wilson Party @ Glo in New York City

On Saturday night, some of the gameıs biggest stars Venus and Serena Williams, and Justine Henin-Hardenne*came out to celebrate the introduction of Wilsonıs new sticks for chicks, called the W line. This wasnıt some cheesy press conference with boring men in suits. The companyıs stable of pro players, along with dozens of reporters, paparazzi, and other industry insiders, were clubbing at Glo in the trendy meatpacking district of Manhattanıs lower West side.

No doubt: This was the hottest ticket in town.

SMASH was there, too. Not to crash the party. We had to be on our best behavior, because we were the main sponsor of the shindig. But hey, any excuse to rub elbows with the gameıs elite is good enough for us.

Anyway, in the VIP room, Justine Henin-Hardenne and her husband, Pierre, sat across a table and held hands for most of the evening, oblivious to the packed house around them. Clearly, two years of marriage hasnıt dimmed their passion. And although sheıs one of the most ferocious people youıll ever see on the court, off it Justine is unimposing and sweet. Most people, it seemed, didnıt even noticed that she was at the eveningıs party.

Sir Roger came shortly thereafter, looking as dapper as usual. The man just radiates cool. He worked the room with aplomb, much like the way he plays tennis, making time for everyone and anyone who wanted his autograph or just to say high. He also caught up with bud Jonas Bjorkman before heading to a quiet corner to chill.

There were a few false alarms that Serena had entered the building. Then rumor spread that she might not show. Word is, the night before at a WTA function she and Venus left prematurely, after their friend, pop star Brandy, thought the bash was kind of lame and wanted to head over to Nobu instead. Would the Williams sisters blow off this event? No worries: She and Venus showed, without, to our knowledge, Brandi, taking the stage to promote the W line. (For more on these racquets, go to Wilsonıs website.)

Other players came and went Ivanovic, and a certain ATP player, who shall remain nameless, who was showing off a naked picture of a woman on his cell phone. We presume she is his girlfriend.

And in a corner, yawning on a sofa, was Taylor Dent. The big guy kept to himself. Later in the evening, I bumped into his agent, who told me that these kinds of PR gigs arenıt Taylorıs thing.

The same canıt be said of former French Open doubles champion Murphy Jensen. Really, is there an event this guy doesnıt attend? The dudeıs everywhere.

It does seem that way, doesn't it ? Anyone that follows TTC (The Tennis Channel) has nerves of steel if they aren't on the verge of wanting to jump through the television and directing him towards the nearest exit sign.

Thanks mirkaland.

Re: Ok, which player did this?

I think this was one of the PR events shown on the TTC Open Access show around the time of the US Open - I think I still have it recorded, so I'll post on who else shows in that segment if I get a chance to watch it. Or, if I see anyone staring at their cell phone, lol

You might also go to the Wilson website to find a list of which players use Wilson racquets or strings if you really want to theorize on who?

Re: Ok, which player did this?

I watched the Open Access bit on this event, but nothing useful. They said about 600 people attended the event. It was extremely dimly lit, there were many tables filled with people in the background, but I could only recognize the players they were interviewing - the Williams sisters, Henin-Hardenne, Federer. Murph asked kind of odd questions of H-H, like did you sleep with your racquet when you were young? He asked Federer if he slept with his racquets or his trophies - Roger had a good answer - "I sleep with my pillow and my girlfriend."
