Anyone else stoked for the U.S. Open??

I read the new Tennis magazine today, and it was great to read about the move to Flushing Meadows. I loved all the colorful photos, the memories of night matches, etc. There is so much energy and excitement at the Open!! It's like no other major, and that's great.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

I am SOO PSYCHED!!! I live only 90 miles away from NYC, and it's an easy drive or bus ride for me. I'm definitely going next Thursday night and Friday all day, but may just try and catch the women's final this year (depending on who's playing).

I love the Open. I will probably never go *unless I get rich* but I love the energy which surrounds it. The Aus is on too late, Im always revising/exams during the French. Wimby is the only one which comes close to getting me very very exciteted. As soon as the draw comes out, Ill print it, and make my wall chart.

If tennis for you is only about one player, then I hope you don't call yourselves "tennis fans"

Please if your beloved Justine or Kim were out you wouldnt be saying the same thing? I will probably still watch, but the woman who has been my favorite player for years now who has always done well at the US Open wont be there some I am not as stoked as you are. Is there something wrong with that? (BTW, I will be glued to the mens hoping Andy wins his first major )

Personally I can't wait, it should be great. It is a pity that Serena cannot play but every professional player has to cope with injuries at some time or another.

SerendyWillick - My beloved Justine? LMAO! Are you talking out of your ass or what? She's my least fave player I do love Kim, though, but I would still be excited for the Open if Kim wasn't playing. I created this thread about the excitement that is the Open - not about one player.

i love all the grand slams. they are much moe iteresting than other tournaments plus they go for 2 weeks and the quality is usually the best out of all the tournaments (unfortunately us open isn't this year with serena out). but i only get coverage of the slams so it's hard to find the other tournaments interesting.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.
