Now I have the WiFi to myself I'll try to post a few pictures taken yesterday at the Cincy tournament. Actually I'm in Mason, Ohio but I guess someone figured no one would come if they call a tennis tournament the Mason Masters.
I will be here for the week and will be posting pics as the tournament progresses. It started Friday, July 25th with the draw and a seniors tournament. Because of delays in flights, rental car pickup, and heavy traffic from the airport to my hotel in Mason I miss the events of last evening.
Yesterday was the first day of qualifying. In general the crowds were small. With no qualies interesting me I just wandered between practice courts. With Rafa still in Toronto you'll have to be satisfied with pictures of other players I enjoy.
Yes there are espenses involved in spending a day at a tennis tournament. Not to fear the directors have thought of everything.
I'm rather doubtful I'll get to the groundst today. There is only and a daytime session and with Rafa's final to be played Not Before 1:30 p.m., I expect the day to be taken up with feeding and being in an air-conditioned place watching his match. For those who have always wanted to see Mason, Ohio I might be able to fill the gap between today and tomorrow's (Monday) opening day with a few pics of the area.
I do write but whenever possible I'd rather post a picture than subject people to a dose of my stilted prose.
