US Open 2018: Welcome Back & New Logo

Well...it's been 2 years hasn't it. That's what heading to grad school will do to a person. Sometimes the axiom, 'the more things change, the more they stay the same,' rings true. But sometimes, as with the case of the US Open's new logo, one steps away, and comes to find that things have gone completely awry.



Is this Arial font? Are these letters lower case? Really, in this political climate, lower case US? Is lower case an affront to becoming great again?

US Open 2018: Rafael Nadal in Practice to Defend Open Chamionship Title

Rafael Nadal took an hour to work on his forehands in the new Louis Armstrong stadium at the US Open, today. 



Accompanied by his champion coach, Carlos Moya, Rafa spent the session working on down-the-line forehands and serves. 



Rafa appeared to be at ease during the practice session but tensed up during as he practiced serving.  Overall, this was one of the more aggressive practice sessions this blogger has seen and one the first times seeing a male tennis pro with male hitting partners and not other pros. I suppose this is one of the benefits of having a Grand Slam winning coach.
