Last night, my brothers and I went to the US Open. It was my first live tennis match and I loved it! See, I know not to call it a game!
We saw Nadal play against Kohlschreiber, and left before the second night match [a mens’ double]. The stadium, Arthur Ashe stadium, I believe is supposed to be the largest tennis stadium!
The atmosphere was great, and thankfully the weather cooperated. It rained terribly all day and thunderstorms were forecasted for throughout the night. Luckily, it didn’t start to thunder until we were back home late night!
It was a hectic, tiring, and a very busy weekend… otherwise it would have been nice to show up earlier and explore “the village” around the stadium.
Sometime in the future, it would be great to come back, especially for a later round, to see a more exciting competitive game. I loved yesterday’s though and was actually rooting for Kohlschreiber – he played great the first two sets.
Life is on the hectic side lately, that’s for sure. To top it off, I’m going to Virginia to spend some time with Papa mid next week and there’s just a few short weeks away until my parents and I leave for hajj, inshallah. More on that later. I can’t believe how fast time is passing by! So much to do, so very little time left!
