Crazy that this isn't the biggest stadium here



I'm assuming this was the Gauff vs. Keys match?

No it was Paul/Ruud (ha!)

Also you are correct that it is a fantastic event even if you don't care about tennis. It helped that my aunts shared recommendations of which matches would be good and when to try to get in for certain matches but it isn't really necessary because the level of play is so good everywhere and you can almost always find space if there isn't a big name playing or about to play. I can't think of many non-tennis sporting events where you can see like a top 15 player from the front row of a tiny outer court and immediately go to a massive stadium with a crowd that wants to throw their energy behind someone. I'll probably take off Thursday and Friday before Labor Day to get an early round grounds pass every year I'm in New York and am now a massive Leylah Fernandez fan

This is awesome! I've always wanted to go back but the schedule just hasn't worked out.

It took a couple of days, but google finally fed this to me.

Why were they trying to hide it?

Right? It's the only reason to be suspicious about that bottle, at all.
