Day 7 at the US Open

 Today I put the Duck to work. He shot the Serena match upstairs with me.

Serena always makes great pix from up there.

 From the dugout, you can get a great Rafa serve photo down court ...

... or a pre-serve ritual butt picking at the close baseline. I definitely wasn't the only one shooting this! The motordrives were whirring before every serve.

The Duck was right at home perched on my 500 in the photo pit.

The Venus vs Clisters match should have been in beautiful light, but when the heavy clouds rolled in, it got so dark they had to turn on the stadium lights.

It was one of the strangest matches I've ever seen. Clijsters won 6-0, 0-6, 6-4.

Frame 16 of a 20 frame sequence of Venus successfully chasing down Kim's lob.
