I've just returned from my first visit to the U.S. Open. Last night I was fortunate enough to see both Serena Williams and Rafael Nadal during the first week of play. While their competitors hardly stood a chance, it was still fun to be in Arthur Ashe Stadium watching the night matches.
Invited to join a friend as a V.I.P. guest of J.P. Morgan, we spent a few hours at the posh hospitality booth enjoying food and drink before heading in to the stadium. We did not walk the grounds as much as I would have liked, but it is difficult for me to turn down the chance to be pampered so it will be upon my next visit to Flushing Meadows that I'll have to do more sight seeing.
