Tennis, now with Andy Samberg

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Five days before the 2011 US Open Tennis Tournament begins, and The New York Times Magazine decided to feature a long article about tennis rivalries (seriously, this article is so long that by the time you’ll finish reading it the US Open will begin).

In order to attract the younger crowd, who probably doesn’t know that there was tennis before Federer, Nadal and the Williams sisters, NYTM recruited the voice of our generation, Andy Samberg, to reenact some of the most famous tennis photos of all time.

My personal favorites are awkward John McEnroe and hairy Pete Sampras.
