Sometimes it is about the tennis

Among my favorite annual rituals is attending the U.S. Open (tennis) on Labor Day weekend with SeanEric, and ElizabethTricia is invited but declines. Some of my New York friends have even gone along when we had a spare ticket or two.

If you follow my posts here and on Facebook, which I know everyone does faithfully, you know my mantra: “It is never just about the tennis.”

Yesterday in Melbourne:
Wang Qiang defeated Serena Williams.
Coco Gauff defeated Naomi Osaka.
Ons Jabuer defeated Caroline Wozniaki in Wozniaki’s final match before retiring due to health reasons.

Sometimes, my friends, it is about the tennis.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 2-5 September 2016

The Until We Meet Again Tour played the US Open from Friday evening through Monday night, an exhausting and invigorating schedule. A number of friends and family members sat in during the appearance. The heart of the group was Sean and Eric. Great tennis was viewed. Good times were shared. The renovations at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center were impressive. The new Grandstand became a favorite. It was good to see some matches in Louis Armstrong Stadium. Much food was consumed. The hamburgers came highly recommended and lived up to their billing.

The Until We Meet Again Tour – 1 September 2016

After a day of work, the Until We Meet Again Tour appeared at Penn Station to pick up Eric who arrived to attend the US Open. We traveled to Sean’s apartment where we visited with the talented up and coming artist Henrik.
