It’s my favorite time of year for sports in New York! Tennis has always been my favorite, so one of the biggest upsides of living here is being able to go to the U.S. Open. My father is here for two weeks and he has literally been to Flushing almost every day. For us, Friday night was the highlight. Enjoy the pics!
7 train. Amazingly quick on the express.
If you have two kids, your husband will do nice things for you (like carry your heavy handbag even if it makes him look incredibly girly)
Added treat: we got to see Andy Roddick play right after he announced that this U.S. Open would be his last tournament. The electricity in the crowd was amazing. He was clearly moved by it and played great.
Roddick. We had amazing seats. I have become good friends with the parents of one of my ex-students, and they invited us to their box. Thanks Valerie and Chris!
And now a word from the U.S. Open sponsors! Ralph Lauren.. nice
.. Heineken... nice...
.. Mercedes..nice.. (BTW, apparently if you drive a Mercedes to the U.S. Open, they will give you free parking.. how funny is that?)
.. The U.S. Open Bookstore? We passed on this one
The seats were right behind the cameraman. How old school does this camera look?!?
Sporting event food tip: bring your own! My yummy tofu salad from "Just Salad".
Ken's philosophy.. slightly different. Italian sausage with peppers and onions of questionable origin. And French's mustard. Gag.
Roddick played really well, and won in straight sets. He was clearly moved by the support of the crowd.
So excited for a few more days of tennis, but I’m so bummed it’s almost over! Best sporting event in New York.
