Day 9 at the Open


The second week at the US Open tennis 2021. I got a Louis Armstrong ticket @ $135 (Sec 6, row C), parking at the commuter lot is $25, in lieu of the normal rate of $5, or it’s free for Benz.

We picked up our breakfast from Flushing to have at the Open. The leek or chives pan cakes are great.

~ Unisphere: This spherical stainless steel globe was part of 1964 New York World’s Fair.

Four matches, two mixed and two women’s doubles sandwiched at the Louis Armstrong:

Giuliana Olmos/M. Arévalo def E. Perez/M. Demoliner. Giuliana’s outfit is pretty.

Jessica Pegula (born Buffalo, New York in 1994) and Austin Krajicek (born in Tampa, Florida in 1990) def Alexa Guarachi and Neal Skupski.

Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey def Horia Tecau & Kevin Krawletz: a very mechanic match.

This year’s Ralph Lauren’s outfit is pretty colorful; and the Mets uniformed dog capped our day.

Shame on USTA

The photo is Zheng Saisai, NOT Zhang Shuai 

Can’t USTA get their act together: using Zheng Saisai’s photo for Zhang Shuai?

The second match at Louis Armstrong stadium is women’s doubles which is our main attraction: Zhang Shuai and Sam Stosur. There are a few interruptions from system malfunction (?) and the biggest one is, USTA put up (郑赛赛 1994-) Zheng Saisai’s photo for Zhang. This is a bit too hard to swallow.

I like both players, Zhang Shuai and Sam Stosur. It was Stosur who talked Zhang out of retirement in 2015. They’ve won Aussie Open doubles in 2019. They’ve similar physiques, wear identical outfit. The Aussie’s arms are more muscle than the Chinese.

I’ve seen Zhang many times and enjoy her skill as well as her physical appearance – she has the perfect body for tennis. Her arms are particularly pretty. Stosur is in great shape and a slightly shorter than Zhang. Her torso is also slightly thiner than Zhang’s.

Same dog different day

I’ve seen this dog at Mets or Citifield many times. A bit surprise to see him or her at the 2021 US Open too.
