View From the Top

The other night we had a chance to catch the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open--Djokovic vs. Moya. The first couple of sets were quite close, and the excitement in Arthur Ashe stadium was palpable, particularly during the silent moments of play when all you could hear was the ball being hit back and forth (and one very enthusiastic Spanish fan shouting "Venga Carlos!"). Djokovic eventually took control and plowed over Moya to finish the match in three sets, but it was thrilling nonetheless! I caught this wide-angle shot from our seats up in the nosebleeds. (Truly, we were not as far away as this picture makes it appear!) After the quarterfinals were over we caught the first set of the exhibition match between Martina Navratilova and Jana Navotna and then ducked out to catch the subway home before it got too too late on a work night.
