2 D.C. tennis courts to undergo renovation
John Isner didn't have to worry about any marathon matches Monday morning when he took a break from the Legg Mason Tennis Classic to hit a few balls with District youth in Mount Pleasant.
Isner, who holds the record along with Nicolas Mahut for the longest match in tennis history, was on hand as the United States Tennis Association and American Express announced that two courts in the 3100 block of 16th Street NW would undergo a renovation.
"This project is really exciting because it focuses on getting young people into tennis," said Jesus Aguirre, director of the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation.
The courts are being renovated under the Fresh Courts project which is seeking to repair existing courts in three cities, including Los Angeles, New York and the District.
They cost of estimating the D.C. courts is $30,000.
