Last year we went to our first professional tennis tournament, and we loved it so much we were back again this year. It's held near Palm Springs and it's a big deal. All the top tennis players in the world are there showing their skills.
We paid good money for these nose bleed seats!! But it was actually a great view. It was so much fun to be there in person, cheering with thousands of other tennis fans. The energy was pretty awesome in that stadium!
We got to see the #1, #2, and #3 players in the WORLD! Roger Federer, as shown below, is Shane's favorite. Sadly, he lost in the semifinals. But it was just an honor to watch him play. King Fed. Fed Ex. The Fedster.
Then we watched World #1 and Armani model, Rafael Nadal, get beat by Novak Djokovic. It was an amaaaaazing match. These guys are insane!
A BIG THANKS to Tania Robertson, Alex's mother-in-law, for hooking us up with a place to stay! We were fed and housed by Tania's sister, Kerry, at her sweet home in Palm Springs. It really put our weekend over the top! Until next year...we'll be watching tennis on the internet :)
