The two weeks around Labor Day mean U.S. Open tennis in New York, always a big and fun deal. After Dana endured to my almost whining about our horrible, extremely high-up seats last year (halfway up the highest tier, miles from the action), this year she sprang for nicer seats in a suite. We went with Steve Furgal (who else?) and got tickets for a single day. We were on the second tier of suits on the side that went into shade early in the day. They also had food in the suite!
We lucked into some very good matches including Dana's favorite, Roger Federer, who played an excellent match. The seats gave us a birds-eye view of the action, and for once, it didn't get blazing hot. Nor did we see a hint of rain. All in all, an almost perfect day at the Open.
