Travel photo of the day (Aug. 29th)

The U.S. Open starts today!  This Friday I am heading to New York to catch some of the tennis matches.  This photo was taken in 2009 during the del Potro and Federer final.  Del Potro won.

    What a gorgeous sunset!

    I love going to the Open too. Sometimes we can’t get tickets to the matches in Ashe Stadium, but usually the play on the outer courts are just as exciting.

    Have a great time!

      Some of the best matches are on the smaller courts and you get closer to the action. I hope you have a great time as well! And I hope both of us see some great matches. Thanks!

    I read US Open and I thought, “golf?” Shows my ignorance of such things. Have a terrific time.

    So dramatic – have lots of fun.

  5. Amazing sky in this photo – it was a good final. Only watched on tv (we´re both big tennis fans) but remember it well!

      I love the skyline there! It was a great final. I was cheering for Roger, but I was happy for del Potro. I hope he can get back to that level after his injury.

    Wow the color of the sky is pretty cool. Did you enjoy the match?
