I’m a homer. For tennis. For the US Open. I’ve written about the tournament before. And I’ve always admired the show — the athletes, the matches, the wild audience. But, this year it’s different. I’ve truly been bitten by the tennis bug. I’ve already visited the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center multiple times in the last 10 days, and tonight, I get to watch Roger Federer play Gael Monfils.
For those of you who don’t know either of these players, turn on the TV tonight. Federer, arguably the greatest player ever (or at least in the conversation), is back in form after a lackluster 2013 campaign. And Monfils (pictured below) is a great showman. An acrobat with a racket. And his game has matured where Fed fans need to be concerned about tonight’s match-up.
So tonight at 8pm Eastern Time tune in and watch Federer and Monfils light up the court and treat the audience to a fantastic match. Me included.
And maybe I’ll see you at the Open next year. I’m ready to buy my 2015 tickets now.
