Henrik Lundqvist Battles Novak Djokovic In Tennis Match

by Tony Griffo | Posted on Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Henrik Lundqvist rules the creases of the NHL, but can the king of goalies hold his own on a court foreign to him?

The court in question is the tennis court, where Henrik joined forces with native New Yorker, rabid New York Rangers fan, and former tennis great John McEnroe in a celebrity doubles match.

Randall’s Island was the setting for the match, as Lundqvist and McEnroe teamed up to face current tennis star Novak Djokovic and New York born actor Edward Norton to raise money for the Johnny Mac Tennis Project.

The evening was a success and the team of Henrik and Johnny Mac emerged victorious.
