In an effort to get buzz going for Wimbledon, tourney sponsor HSBC got Monica Seles and Jim Courier playing mini-matches in front of four of the bank’s locations in Manhattan this past Thursday. Justin Gimelstob refereed the matches, which were played on a portable green (astroturf?) court.
If you’re in New York for the next two weeks, HSBC will have Strawberries and Cream carts in front of many of their branches, where trained staff (in traditional Wimbledon attire, of course) will serve the dessert to passers-by.
