Good news is news, too

-

I, like many other tennis fans, enjoyed watching Wimbledon 2022. I was especially thrilled to see the July 3 tribute to the “Legends of Tennis.” How wonderful to see the old-timers as well as the current champions walk onto Centre Court together. The crowd went wild, and my husband and I sat and smiled the entire time as they introduced and then interviewe­d former and present players. I couldn’t wait to read about it in the sports section the next day, but, sadly, there was absolutely no coverage of this historic, wonderful event. How sad that news is not newsworthy unless it’s tragic. This would have been an excellent opportunit­y for The Post to publish a feel-good story. What a missed opportunit­y.
