The 2011 U.S. Open Tennis Championship ended on Monday, 12 September due to a rain interrupted two weeks. The men’s and women’s singles finals were terrific ends to the tournament. The USTA was tested by the weather and prevailed admirably. I photographed the first U.S. Open on the grass at Forest Hills and now, 43 years later on hard courts at the Billy Jean King National Tennis Center, Corona Park, Flushing Meadows, N.Y.
The 2011 quarter-final Davis Cup tie between the U.S.A, and Spain was played in July at the Frank Erwin Center on the University of Texas campus in Austin before an enthusiastic sell out audience. The venue was excellent. Unfortunately for the partisan U.S.A. fans, Spain was the better team that week.
The 2011 U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship was played at The River Oaks Country Club, Houston, Texas in April. This has been the venue for three years. The center court is intimate, close to the players with ideal sight lines. The River Oaks tournament is in it 76th year; the oldest tournament played in the same location in the U.S.
