City Desk did some fieldwork this weekend, giving you the most complete coverage of Saturday’s Mayoral Tennis Showdown between Anthony A. Williams and his predecessor, Marion S. Barry Jr. The match was part of the 8th annual Hart to Heart Tennis Experience, a benefit for the Southeast Tennis & Learning Center in Congress Heights.
Hart to Heart is a doubles tournament matching up juniors with adults; for the mayoral exhibition, Williams played with 12-year-old Elizabeth Means, and Barry with her sister, Sarah, 13.
UPDATE, 1:50 P.M.: Resident fuzzyball expert Huan Hsu sez: “god, somebody take aw’s racquet away from him. six double faults is not acceptable at this level. i also like how it took him the entire first tiebreak to figure out that he should keep a ball in his pocket when he’s serving.”
