Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

Wish I could drag myself up to Midtown today so I could catch a glimpse of the Williams sisters lobbing tennis balls in Bryant Park:

The lawn will be transformed into two regulation US Open tennis courts for exhibition matches between USTA pros, including Venus and Serena Williams; former pros-turned-TV commentators the Jensen brothers; the World’s current No. 1 Men’s doubles team the Bryan brothers; and James Blake.

Like I said: A glimpse of Venus and Serena, and then, well, whatever. I don’t know nor care who those other chumps are.

Not that I’m much of a tennis fan to begin with. And now that I’m clued in on the double-swinging wonders of two-racket tennis, I’m afraid that old-fashioned one-armed volley just doesn’t suffice anymore. (I wonder if the Williamses could be persuaded to show off the two-handed method this afternoon?)
