Can’t wait till Monday!

Who is ready for U.S. Open? I’ve been anxiously awaiting it all summer long. All the glitz and glamor along with New York’s spectacular atmosphere makes it U.S.A.’s biggest tennis event of the year.

Rafael Nadal is considered the favorite for this tournament. He has the best match win record this year (53-3). He has everything to gain here. Some may say that he’s had a terrific summer and perhaps a bit tired now, but I highly doubt that. He was able to take the previous week off, taking in some of New York’s culture and was able get some practice in. First up for him is Ryan Harrison.rafa and roger

Anyone excited to see Ferru? I am. ๐Ÿ™‚ Of course! It’s gonna be a tough for him to repeat his semifinal appearance from last year. He has tricky players like Janowicz or Raonic in his section. His first potential challenge might be Gulbis. 1st round opponent Kyrgios should be easy considering he is an 18 yr old with a 1-1 career win/loss record!

Here’s a couple more pics of Ferru. Yesterday he participated in a Prince autograph signing. Of course he had to pose with his sweetheart too, nice to see her in NYC! (I like her outfit)lovers

I forgot to post this, it looks like he was able to get some golfing in while relaxing in Iberostar. I didn’t even know he played golf! ๐Ÿ˜€playing golf iberostar FB site
Fer tweeted this of himself with Nico after their practice. Good luck guys!

The ATP hosted a special Heritage tribute to all of the former (and current) number one’s. Included in this elite gathering were players like Johnny Mac, Jim Courier, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander…and the list goes on! You can read more about it here.three spanish ones

  1. I’m really looking forward to the U.S. Open too! Love the atmosphere at the matches, especially the night sessions.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing Ferru again! Hope he’s in better form than Montreal/Cincy though I think he will be. If he’s playing well, then I think he should get past Gulbis and Janowicz to get to the QFs at least.

    Nice photos – good to see JCF again. I used to really like watching him play. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It’s nice to see Juan Carlos from time-to-time. He has such an easy going aura around him. I wonder if he’s still coaching Nico?!

      *Ferru better be back in full form after his somewhat of a disastrous summer.

    • Hi Tess! How are you? Hope your summer was nice. I didn’t even realize he was playing golf left-handed. But I’m sure glad that this photo was taken. He seems to be active in climbing, swimming, running, cycling…and now this. I like! ๐Ÿ™‚
