US Open Qualfying Day 3 Report and Pictures
Again, this is going to take awhile to post all the pics.
Since the Open maindraw is getting closer, there are more top players practicing at the National Tennis Center. I was able to catch some of them which was awesome. As I have said before, if you want a full size picture emailed to you, just let me know.
It wasn't as sunny today, so the weather was much more pleasant. I arrived at the tennis center at around noon. I couldn't believe it - Jankovic was walking off the court and Ashley was not far behind. The latter was especially surprising. Day ended with some gritty battles. Match of the day was Wheeler and Barna. Match took forever and Wheeler was cramping badly. Amazingly, she pulled out the third set. Wheeler served for the match at 5-3 in the third and was broken. Then she broke back to win. Both players gave their all and were grunting loudly.
My next trip to the Open will be on Tuesday. Too bad I won't be there for the roving circus that will be Kornikova. Maybe she stay around for the second week and I will get to see her.
