Roddick, Courier to Face Off in NY Open Opening Night
After the New York Tennis Expo, join Roddick and Courier as the two face off in a culinary competition before stepping onto the court for their match. The Taste of New York Open will see Roddick and Courier put their cooking skills to the test in an Iron Chef-like competition as Chef David Burke, a two-time James Beard Foundation winner as “Best Chef in New York”, shows off his culinary skills and creates a VIP culinary experience that will carry on throughout the week of the tournament.
Roddick and Courier will then ditch their aprons and pick up their racquets for an exciting exhibition match between two of the most accomplished stars in American tennis history. The two have combined for five Grand Slam titles, 55 ATP Tour singles titles, and nearly $35 million in career earnings during their decorated careers.
“I can’t wait for this world-class Taste of New York Open event with David, ahead of my match with Jim,” said Roddick. “This just showcases the type of atmosphere around the New York Open that has made it a destination in just its second year.”
