US Open 2011

Was in New York/New Jersey the past one week. A very good friend of us took us to US Open this weekend. It was the most a wonderful time of our life!! We had box seats, seated at the same level as Mrs.Federer (Althogh for a fleeting moment, the thought of selling our tickets for 1000$+ did cross our minds. In retrospect, we are so glad we didn’t pay attention to our thoughts!). We had the privilege of watching Federer vs Cilic and Serena vs Azarenka matches. It was just amazing. Husband went camera crazy. We were grinning half the time since we couldn’t believe we were there at close proximity. Take a look at a few pix that husband clicked. It was fun hearing Azarenka grunt and Serena roar in person!! Federer looks more skinny in person that on TV. Still grinning thinking about the fun we had!! Good company, great friends, great kids, good chaat, mini-golf, wii resort, US OPEN live from box seats, what more can one ask of a vacation!!
