By Susan Kostrzewa
Over 400 food, wine and tennis fans convened at the W Hotel in New York City on August 23rd for the Dacor Taste of Tennis food and wine event. Celebrating the launch of the 2007 US Open, the night featured tennis stars such as Andy Roddick, Tommy Haas and Rafael Nadal as they joined forces with top chefs like David Burke and Marcus Samuelsson in cooking demonstrations. Proceeds benefited the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, a global, community-based charity organization whose volunteers include 42 Olympians and professional athletes. Wine Enthusiast Magazine was a media sponsor.
