New York here we are. Arrival was uneventful, something we strive for. Yesterday was our first full day at the US Open. It was a glorious day at the tennis center. The first women's match, Dementieva/Oudin, went on for almost three hours, backing up all the matches on Ashe court. The night session didn't start until 9pm and ended just after midnight. I'm not sure how I ever managed going to bed at 2am and getting up at 8am, I guess it was easier in my youth! Thanks to a grande from Starbucks my eyes seem to be open. Today we're off to Build a Bear with Izzy & Zoe, their parents in tow, and lunch. Tonight we have tickets for the night tennis, hopefully it will start at the normal time.
