City Paper is not for tourists
The Washington Kastles, the city’s new team tennis outfit, are still telling ticket buyers that Serena Williams will be playing three matches with the squad next week, starting with Tuesday’s home opener on the site of the old DC convention center.
Who thinks that’ll happen?
If Serena whups underdog Zheng Jie in today’s Wimbledon semifinal, she’ll be in London through the weekend.
Prediction: The word “fatigue” will pop up when revised lineups are announced for the Kastles’ Tuesday match-up with something called the Boston Lobsters.
According to the Kastles schedule, that’s the only home date Serena will be playing this season.
Luckily for the Kastles, Serena’s not the only team member in the news these days. Justin Gimelstob’s been very media friendly.
