Some Images from the USOpen (Part 1)

I was out at the US Open last week for the week one part of the tournement. It is my favorite week because a lot happens on the smaller courts and you get to see some old favorites (like Borna Coric) and find new ones (like Jensen Broodsby). And, of course, a little time with some greats.

This is a brand new statue of Althea Gibson. She was the first African -American to win the US Open.

Novak Djokovic

Borna on Court 7. I saw him the only day he played as he had to scratch with an injury after he won.

This is a cool view from Grandstand Court over to Arthur Ashe. I am sitting high because of shade.
I did go to (and then stay) on Grandstand to watch Daniil Medvedev. He is a very hot player right now who was in three finals in three weeks, and just won Cincinnati.

Medvedev serving. He is goofy looking - lanky with a tiny head -but a great player

 Finally, below is Jenson Broodsby. He was a kid. The shots aren't great because it was into the sun, but it was great fun to watch him. He is 18 and from California. He played a top 15 player in the second round, and did great for almost 2 sets. He won the first, lost the second in a tie break and then, pooped out.

He was fun to watch. And he wore pucka shells while playing! How Californian is that!
