US Open Begins Play

The US Open starts the yearly festivities in Flushing Queens today despite the area being in the processes of cleaning up after Hurricane Irene.


The fans have flowed in and tennis is under way at the Billy Jean King National Tennis Center. New York City is a city that never sleeps, and apparently it doesn’t take a break after getting hammered either. This being one of the worst fields for the Americans in some time I wish they took a couple of days off to delay our boys from being knocked out.


With Marty Fish being the top American at number 8, I know what you are thinking “I thought it Was Andy Roddick”. Roddick has been having a couple of rough seasons that has dropped him from a top 5 player to the back end of the top 25.  With Marty and Andy being the best hope for an American victory at out tournament it looks like the trophy will be leaving US soil once again. Look for the dominance of players like Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer to continue all the way to the Arthur Ash Stadium finale


If you have plans to go down to Flushing, head on down the matches will continue as scheduled. IF you are headed down to watch an American win….. better luck next year.
