Openin’ Gambit…

Two long, hot days at the Open, one week before it kicks off. This year is, “The Year of the Athlete”. They asked for more money, better food and no peasants to cross their line of vision. Sounds reasonable…

I need to practice and play more. If you qualify and loose in the first round, players are guaranteed $50,000. I was brought up believing tennis was a way to stay fit and meet guys…boy, did I select the wrong career path!

I saw Andy Murray all sweaty, practicing in Louis Armstrong Stadium…unlike most athletes who look sexy, sweaty, Andy does not qualify. I did a drive by in the players lounge and Swiss tennis ace, Stan Warinka, was hangin’. He is taller in person and slightly more attractive.

Go USA…Madison Keys, is adorable. Donald Young was looking psyched after his qualifying round win, Robby Ginepri, the player with the Springsteen arms and a rockin’ body, played in the first qualifying round and won…plethora of female Russian Ova’s bouncing around the Open.

By 2017 there will be no more weather delays. A zillion dollar roof will cover Ashe Stadium.

Time to hydrate and rest up for tomorrow’s matches.
