Who wouldn’t want to see Opelka, Berretini, Pliskova, Monfils, Sloane and the best tennis players in the world? That’s what we did on September 2, the morning after Ida dumped flood waters on our beautiful courts. Despite the weather, the late vaccination proof requirement, and the mobile ticketing requirement, thirty brave IHTC members and guests enjoyed a beautiful day at the US Open 2021. We returned home in plenty of time to rest up and play tennis the next day. Thanks to all who participated for arriving on time, with vaccination proof, mask, and good nature.
