ATLANTA – Incredibly gracious, one of the first things Gail Devers did was thank the volunteers at the BB&T Atlanta Open exhibit.
The tennis tournament’s display, featuring pins, uniforms, a torch and more, celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Olympic Games in Atlanta.
Devers praised the event’s 400 volunteers and joked about being a ball kid, having to quickly run across the tennis court and retrieve the yellow balls.
“I’d have to use (starting) blocks,” she laughed.
