MIDTOWN EAST — The U.S. Open doesn't start until next week, but it's already serving up celebrity-filled events in New York.
Among them was BNP Paribas' "Taste of Tennis," which took place Thursday at the W Hotel on 49th and Lexington Avenue in Midtown East.
In attendance were tennis stars Serena Williams, Bob and Mike Bryan, wearing their Olympic gold medals for men's doubles, Victoria Azarenka, Tommy Haas, James Blake, Mardy Fish and Daniela Hantuchova.
Guests included Henryk Lundqvist, "Top Chef's" Gail Simmons and "Real Housewife" Aviva Drescher.
The event raised money for the New York Junior Tennis League.
