    ^^^^ Was that pic taken on the grounds of the US Open? It doesn't look like it with so many trees and grassy lawns.

    LOL, thanks drak. But when you have a serve like his, the backhand he has seems to be ok.

    Thanks JBF, it was pretty darn cool.

    Now I'm impressed! I never would have thought that anyone would have known who she was. I followed her career closely in the NCAAs. I've also seen her play her in Alb. a few times too. Very nice person. And yes that's Angela Haynes. Mashona was extremely nice when I met her. I'll post more when my friend sends them to me. I ran out of space on my card so she took some.

    ^^^I have a picture somewhere of Mashona and I in Miami...she was a total sweetheart when I asked for a picture. Nice to see her playing at the Open.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing!

    Interesting. It's been many years since I've been there but I don't recall seeing so many trees and lawns on the grounds at Flushing Meadows. Maybe it's changed. :)

    BTW, were you next to the court for Dent's 1st round match against Lopez?

    Oooops! My bad. It is Haynes instead of Hines. I only know Kopps-Jones because she played college ball for the Golden Bears.

    LOL, no I didn't get any comments about England thrashing them. I surprised that no one from Croatia said the opposite though. LOL.

    I know, they took really good pictures. Not mean like, "ugh not this **** again". LOL. I think Mashona took the best one though.

    Thanks Topaz. Yes, she is incredibly nice in fact. After she took a picture with me there was an older guy who was trying to get one of her, but his camera was having issues. I swear I saw her stand there for about 15 min. while this guy tried to figure out what was wrong with it. Until I see otherwise, she is the nicest player I have met so far while going to tournaments. No one else would even consider waiting like she did.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see Taylor play. Hopefully I'll still be able to follow through with my plans to go to the Aussie Open and I'll get to see him again there.

    I think I was lucky to get one with him. I tried to get one with Berdych but he sneaked outta there fast. LOL.

    I'm about 6'3", so almost all the women were shorter than me. There was one lady, I forget her name, she's from Uzbekistan. Now she's nearly as tall as me.

    Yeah, I know. It sucks. Like I said, I should be able to catch him at the AO because I plan on going. His ranking should be high enough to get a DA.

    I assume you've already left NYC then? Or else you can catch his 2nd round match tomorrow against Navarro (another serve-and-volleyer, BTW (2nd in a row, unheard of these days, and another Spanish S&V to boot :shock:)) on the Grandstand court.
