Sweltering in Cincinnati

I had the chance to visit the Western & Southern Financial Open this past weekend in Cincinnati, and boy was it HOT! We drove in for the evening session Friday, making it just in time to see Djokovic vs. Monfils. I love watching Djoko (as we like to call him) play, he’s a maniac! They battled pretty hard – nothing like seeing an evenly matched pair like this!  It was a great match, and perfect weather! What a gorgeous night! Djokovic took him to three sets and came out ahead. We also got to see a little bit of the Bryan brothers quarter final match, which I really love because they don’t really cover doubles on TV. I’m not sure why that is, maybe there isn’t as much interest, or it’s too fast to announce, who knows, but it’s really fun to watch! Saturday we had a full day of tennis -we watched some more big players (Murray/ Fish/Berdych) and completely roasted! It got to 94 on Saturday. I suppose though, as a tennis fan, it’s worth it -these events don’t happen that often! The highlight of our trip – we were waiting for the final on Sunday morning, my dad and I just sitting on a bench outside the stadium, and Djokovic comes running up, 2ft away from us! Not kidding! On his routine warm up jog! Star struck! I wanted to chase him down, but wasn’t quick enough. Dad also reminded me I wasn’t 12 years old (Next time I’ll be ready!) What a great tournament!

We also loved seeing the ESPN broadcasters on the grounds, right up close – I snagged a pic of Chris Fowler (so dreamy) If you look closely at the pic, you can see he’s wearing shorts and sneakers with his sport coat – it made my day! I don’t blame him, it was just too hot! (please ignore large man in cancun shirt, he would NOT move) Star struck again! It Can’t wait for the US OPEN!
