Tennis anyone?

We bought tickets in July to the U.S. Open tennis tournament in New York. Since Angela was still recovering, Guillaume went to the US Open with Angela's brother, Andrew.

Andrew lives in the state of Connecticut, about 1 1/2 hours away. The train doesn't go to Connecticut, so Guillaume took a bus (and he said he'll never take a bus again!).
Guillaume slept and Andrew's home on Friday night, and they took a train the next morning to New York.

The US Open is played in Flushing Meadows, in Brooklyn, New York. They saw the semi-finals; first Novak Djokovic vs. David Ferrer, then Roger Federer vs. Nikolay Davydenko. Even though Angela wasn't there, she watched the matches on tv, trying to find Guillaume and Andrew! They sat about here:

The seats were very good, nobody behind them:

And the view was great!

They left before the crowds (before Federer won), and took separate trains home.
Guillaume bought a shirt at the US Open for himself, and for Angela, he bought a US Open tennis ball. We will go next year, hopefully for the finals instead!
