Last month I met up with high jinks cohort K. Cooper Ray and Arthur Wayne of Brooks Brothers for Andre Agassi’s induction into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The grass courts in Newport, RI, aside from being immaculately manicured, are some of the finest and rarest public grass courts in the land—only four other facilities in the States accommodate those without country club membership. After a well rounded luncheon, we all ducked into the Brooks Brothers box for the afternoon to find respite from the heat. Not all guests were so fortunate. Agassi’s speech was heartfelt, the clothes playful, and the Del’s lemonade thirst quenching (thanks for the round Arthur). All around, it was a great day of tennis and for tennis. I wonder who will be in the class of 2012?
