Emanuel and teen tennis star – running mates

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has a new running mate – Chicago tennis star Taylor Townsend.

Emanuel and the Englewood teen, who upset the 20th seed in the French Open earlier this month, ran together this morning in the fog.

Townsend says the mayor raved about yoga during their mile-and-a-half jog on the South Side.

She also says he ran pretty fast and was hard to keep up with.

After France, she moved up 50 spots in the rankings to 147th.

Townsend heads to Wimbledon in July, feeling confident, because she likes grass courts.
