Highlights from the 2010 US Open. Some from the sidelines, some from the action. Capturing the moods , captioning the moods!
The only time Nadal appears vulnerable on court is when he’s prone! Unfortunately, for his opponents, he’s prone after the fact! Nadal celebrates on court on beating Novak Djokovic.
The T-shirt and the expression says it all! I wonder if Novak’s dad had a number of these tees or whether it was the same one laundered and re-worn! Does it really matter as long as your son gets to the final? Besides, I’m not sitting near him, am I?
The seats were blue too! A veritable sea of blue! A truly colour-coordinated Open.
Rafael Nadal has a sister and no, she’s not muscle-bound! Mother and daughter make a winning pair! Mar a Isabel Nadal and Ana Mar a Parera, Rafael Nadal’s sister and mother, at the US Open men’s final.
The WAGS seem to smile only when they’re on the big screen! The tennis has them down in the doldrums! Maria Perello , better known as Nadal’s girl Friday, grinning for the camera!
No prizes for guessing which is the more cherished trophy? Jada ,on the left, the US Open on the right! Kim does have her hands full!
Vera just didn’t feel the heat all the way to the finals and just to prove it… Check out her uber cool track suit!
Serena , calm and cool in the stands! She was there to cheer sister Venus , all the way to the semis. And looked really chic doing it!
The doubles final saw the Pakistani , Indian and The Star and Stripes on centre court. Truly flagging it for posterity!
The Manhattan skyline, never looked better. An Autumn In New York!
The replica of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center , in flour! Having your cake and eating it too! The Ace Of Cakes indeed!
I guess the fans would just hate me leaving out Wozniacki’s tiny , tiny outfit. A pity she couldn’t mini it all the way to the final! But she did max out the mini!
The spectators and commentators loved the air venting system that Venus designed for her on-court outfit. And in pink too!
The vans may have had RF’s mug adorning them but it was Rafa who had the last laugh! His name decorated the trophy for the first time, completing a career Slam!
Now, this is sports photography! Sharapova, in all her helicoptered glory!
Yes, that’s what the racquet can be used for as well! A stand-up prop! Vera Zvonareva rises to the occasion with some help!
“This seats are meant for sleeping! That is , what I’ll do! “ A fan takes an afternoon siesta , from the tennis, from the sun, from the heat!
I’ll let you into a secret! It was the wind that got Roger’s goat! You don’t believe me? Take a look!
Oh, yes! The deodorant hasn’t worn off yet! I’m still smelling like roses! Maria Kirilenko knows that every point takes her breath away! Ask Djokovic!
A fan with a fan! Fanning the wind away?
