We had the pleasure of celebrating Labor Day weekend by going to US Open with our family. After braving the mildly claustrophobic crowd we made it into the nose bleed seats of Arthur Ashe Stadium which actually offer a really awesome view of the matches being wrestled out below. First up we had the women’s night session. We were super excited because the match we had in our line up featured the #6 seed, Caroline Wozniacki. Not that long ago she was ranked #1 so how bad could this match be? And how is some random chickita banana that is ranked #137 in the world going to do against her? Honestly we weren’t expecting much. We were expecting a floor mopping. What happened?
Three sets of ass kicking wonderfulness. The little 5’6″ blonde hit serves at 110 mph and bounced her way into being our new fave lady on the tennis circuit. Her enthusiasm, spunk and follow through got the entire stadium into a cheering tizzy. Her tears and pure joy in winning got her a standing ovation.
She lost yesterday in the 4th round but went down fighting. She will be our front running lady next year.
