Let's Talk Tennis, Shall We?





This is where we spent the past 13 hours, in Queens at the US Open.
What a day, what a day, what a really great day!
We arrived at 10:30am, hung out at the practice courts and then headed into Arthur Ashe stadium to watch a lot of matches.
We saw Venus roll right through.
James Blake won after his opponent withdrew in the third set.
We saw Ana Ivanovic lose to an unseeded player in a stunning 3 set upset.
After that we saw Serena crush her opponent in one hour.
The last match of the day was Nadal against an American qualifier Ryler.
Great tennis, great commentating, great day. They have these American Express radios for American Express cardholders. They're small and hook on your ear and enable you to hear all the commentators. I'm not an American Express cardholder but the nice guy at the booth generously gave me one anyway. It was too funny. Nothing beats John McEnroe commentating.
I would try to write some witty stuff about our day and all the tennis, but its 1 am and I'm beat. Plus, we're headed back to the Open in a few hours for tomorrows match.
Take care,
Julie
Oh yeah, today the sponser was Evian water. They gave everyone this cool misting bottle designed by James Blake. Very handy.

I'm not much of a tennis fan, I'll admit. But I can appreciate how cool it is that you've seen Andy, Venus, Serena, & listened to John McEnroe comment. I'm thrilled for you! Keep enjoying your vacation. :)
