Free Thursday: Monica Seles & Jim Courier face off
It's a little bit of Wimbledon right in our very own city.
Tennis greats Monica Seles and Jim Courier will face off in a match to celebrate the start of Wimbledon, with kicks off June 23. You can see them FREE as they play a mini-match on a replica Wimbledon tennis court Thursday at 1 p.m. in front of HSBC at 452 Fifth Ave. at 40th St.
Also free: The traditional Wimbledon Strawberries & Cream
If you didn't know about this Wimbledon tradition, don't worry. Neither did we. But according to the BBC:
"Every year about 27,000 kilos of strawberries are eaten during the Wimbledon Tennis Championships, together with 7,000 litres of cream. The popularity of serving strawberries with cream is possibly as old as the event itself."
