US Open

Last night, I watched some early round US Open matches. Lindsay Davenport won in straight sets, as did James Blake.

Blake was a lot of fun to watch as he struggled to return his opponent’s 130 MPH serves and then take control of the rally enough to approach the net. He had one awesome attack where he jumped Air Jordan style to smash the ball so hard it bounced up into the stands with no chance for any return.

It was a beautiful night for tennis.
