Day 6: Tennis. I rode over to watch the US Open tennis tournament. I only saw the whole of one match, but it lasted 4 hours 28 minutes, so I really got my money’s worth. One of the players was American too, so the crowd was really into it. I did, however, get sunburned, even though I sat in the shade all afternoon. Here are some pictures from the afternoon and evening.
From the top of the Arthur Ashe Stadium I could have watched the match in the other arena.
Spidercam, spidercam, does whatever a spidercam does.
The shadows lengthened throughout the match.
I took this photo of the clock at the very first match point. For those who watch or play tennis, I don’t have to explain that this was a long 5 set match.
Standing ovation for Wawrinka and Querrey.
The sun setting over Queens and Manhattan, as seen from the top edge of the stadium.

The open juggling club at the Pratt Institute. I didn’t juggle much. I was pretty knackered after sitting down all day…
