US Open Federer v/s Tsonga

A Dream come true, watching Roger Federer play was always in the list of things that I wanted, and only what best if you witness him winning cursing easily throughout the match.

We have booked tickets for Quarterfinals match of US OPEN,  the match as per schedule was due on Thursday evening, but unless things are not spiced up what the fun, this time rain main sure to show off its  mighty strength. For 2 days all matched scheduled were cancelled.

So Tuesday and Wednesday completely washed out were we finger crossed for our match, from morning onward I was glued on and was fanatically refreshing to check evening forcast, somehow rain had hold up for the entire day and play resumed as normal.

We reached ‘Arthur Ashe stadium’ by 7:00pm match was scheduled to start by 7:45pm, finally announced ‘Jo-Wilfried Tsonga’ and ‘Roger Federer’ entering the court, the whole court erupted in cherish and praying the rain is at bay.
With Federer leading the set by 3 : 2, here comes the rain showering, and in no time and fresh flowers sprouting, you can see umbrellas of all color popping across the stadium.

In most matches you can spot on or few celebrities around, Will Farrell, as usual was making sure bring big wide smile across people who were braving rain.
After a lot of cat and mouse game between rain and clear sky, players were back on courts for some real tennis this time and this time around rain had no role to play.

Being a Federer fan the best result I was looking for was straight set win, and finally I got what I want to see and match ended at 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

Anyone would have loved a 5 setter but not me when my start id playing in the court, I see the opponent is demolished and crumbled and warrior waiting un-scratched.

Some moments I would remember during the match was this man, dancing during each break and making sure people go along with the tune
Match still in progress
US as the us Open, battled rain and enjoyed Federer win over Tsonga

This is me, outside the arena
