Obsessing about the US Open

Apologies for not writing. I have been in obsessive mode. I’ve spent the last two weeks obsessing about everything to do with the US Open. It’s my annual torment.

US OPEN Wednesday-Day Session

I went to the US Open yesterday with Mike S from the Brooklyn Tennisopolis group.

He had a extra Day Session ticket available, so we made a day out of it.



We saw Nikolay Davydenko vs Dudi Sela and also Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Santiago Ventura.

We also watched some Mens & Womens doubles being… Continue

Q. Was there ever a point tonight where you felt like a little defeated, like tonight wasn't your night?

Q. Thoughts on that, Andy?
