Here's one of the weirdest real estate transactions involving sports people in recent memory: tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams have apparently owned a Midtown apartment together for a decade but never got around to furnishing it, and just sold it to Ted Wells, author of the Wells Report, the NFL's official investigation into Tom Brady allegedly deflating footballs before a playoff game, which is a whole big thing right now. The Williams sisters paid $1.335 million for the apartment, located on the tenth floor of 28 West 38th Street, in 2005, and sold it to Wells for $2.1 million.
