‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY…THE U.S. OPEN BEGINS MONDAY


Dear Tennis Is Tops Readers: This is my invitation to you to follow the the U.S. Open, which begins on Monday, August 30, and ends on September 12.

If you can’t be in New York, you can at least follow the Open  here, with me, on Tennis Is Tops, or watch it on TV, if you have the time or the interest. I have both. I will also be at the Open on Saturday, September 5, thanks to my cousin Alex Goldberg,(see his photo at the end of this article) who has generously given us free tickets for the day session. We have in previous years taken a one day bus trip. We don’t know yet where we will be sitting, but it will be somewhere here in Ashe Stadium, which has a seating capacity of nearly 23,000, plus luxury suites. We’ll know where we will sit when Alex picks up the tickets at will-call. Our bus trip seats have always been nosebleed seats at the top of the stadium (yellow). But we could still see quite well.

Since you can't go with us, you can always see the live scoring on the website, www.usopen.org. Below is the television schedule, or you can see it at this link. www.tennis-x.com/xblog/2010-08-23/5058.php.



As in the past, I will be contributing articles to Tennisnow.com, and I will also post them here. http://www.tennisnow.com/


As usual, the early rounds will be televised by ESPN2, and Tennis Channel; CBS handles all the finals.
