In the Junior Boys Qualifying Singles, I saw a captivating 3 set victory by Enzo Couacaud of France over Spencer Papa of USA.I saw thrilling 5 set victories by Donald Young over Stanislas Wawrinka, and by Andy Murray over Robin Haase.I saw the Indo-Pak Express (Rohan Bopanna and Aisam Qureshi) defeat James Cerrentani and Philipp Marx in Mens Doubles.And I caught Roger Federer and Maria Kirilenko, on their off-day, practicing on Practice Courts 1 & 2.All in all: a fantastic educational experience and great fun too.
Final Observations On the Players:
*The huge preparation before each shot - their intentionality behind each stroke
*The fluidity of their footwork and movement - how they get out-of-the way of the incoming ball (spacing to the ball)
*The follow-through and completeness of their strokes
And wow - do they look ever so relaxed and loose!For more information on the USA's Grand Slam Tournament, visit: U.S. OpenBest,
