Medill News Service’s Mary Coffman moderated.

Billie Jean King on Bret Baier: “He’s a Wild Man”

Just hours before the Washington Kastles defeated the Springfield Lasers to win the World Team Tennis championship, some of DC’s top media personalities showed off their own skills in a celebrity match. If you were brave enough to kick it court-side in Sunday’s sweltering heat, you would have caught Bret Baier, Ed Henry, Margaret Carlson, Al Hunt, Jonathan Karl, WTTG’s Dave Feldman, Audrey Barnes of WUSA-9, Angie Goff of WUSA-9 and Jurek Martin of the Financial Times.

Media-minis served as ball boys and girls for the match: Betsy Fischer‘s daughter Ella, Tammy Haddad‘s kids Rachel and David and Ed Henry’s son Patrick were all on hand to help out.

Tennis legend Billie Jean King was on the court to coach Baier’s team. When asked about the Fox newsman, King replied “he’s a wild man.” Check out the video from TWT‘s Liz Glover:
