This Saturday I had the great pleasure to shoot again at the US Open. Day 6 of the two week series started in the newly constructed stadium for Court 17. The imposing Croatian – Marin Cilic faced Kei Nishikori of Japan in this beautiful new facility.

Court 17 is a small stadium with close court seating that makes you feel very close to the action. Many fans will rush to Louis Armstrong or the Grandstand in the morning as the good seats tends to fill up quickly; yet there were plenty of great seats still available as this match got underway at 11am.

A heartfelt thanks to Hartford area tennis coach Jon Reichelt for pointing me in the direction of this wonderful new stadium at the National Tennis Center. His words were quite true in that “there isn’t a bad seat in the house”. If you’re going to the US Open this week make sure to check it out!
