Awesome Facilities, Okay Tennis

The tennis lineup was not good anywhere today, but things looked better in Stadium 2, so we spent the first part of the day there.

Between this year and last, they added a whole new stadium at Indian Wells. The new Stadium 2 is absolutely beautiful with nice seating and new high end restaurants built in.

Tennis!

Three rows farther up and our noses would start to bleed!

The weather is beautiful and the tennis is actually pretty good, especially for the early rounds. Our seats are ridiculously high up, but we spent a good part of the day in the other stadiums anyway. The high point for me was the doubles match between the Williams sisters and two Spanish women. The Williams eventually won, but it was not an easy match. So fast and so sharp!  

We also saw Federer (of course) and Nadal along with a host of other players, known and unknown. This is actually a pretty quick trip for us. Only a half day tomorrow. 

Headed to the Open!

The train didn't run, so the trip to the Open was quite the adventure! Lots of hot and sweaty bodies crammed together, all trying to get to Flushing Meadows for tennis and baseball.
