We Were At The U.S Open


We were at the 2009 U.S. Open for two days. We have been doing this for many years now. If you love tennis, you gotta go to the U.S. open or to any tennis tournaments if they are in your area. The Open started August 31 and it will last until Sept 13 at the Billie Jean Tennis Center in Queens, New York.

This is at the opening day. A grounds shot where you see people on their way to the grounds. As you enter, you will see the big Arthur Ashe Stadium where all the top players play.

This another stadium - the Louis Armstrong stadium. Photo taken during James Blake match. Connected to Louis Armstrong is the Grandstand.

Other than the 3 big courts, there around twenty grounds courts. The advantage of being there on the first day is that you still see top players playing at the ground courts. During the first round, mostly all the courts have matches, so it's up to you to pick on which matches you want to go.

This photo was taken as the players enters a ground court for a match. You have a closer look with the players and most of them are willing to have their pictures taken. You have more chances of having an autograph of your favorite tennis player.

If you get hungry, a lot of food kiosk at the grounds and grandstand. It's your choicer - they burgers, delis, indian food, sushi, chicken and fries, ice cream, mexican food, salads and a lot more. Souvenier shops, bars, concerts or a place to hang around and watch the games on the big screens are all over the area.
It is all fun, fun while at the Open. Day session starts at 11:00 am while night session starts at 5pm. We will surely ba back again next year.
