U.S. Open - Kim Clijsters shines

As a tribute to those lost on 9/11/01, U.S. Marines stationed in Brooklyn unfurled the flag and everyone observed a moment of silence.  Chaka Khan sang America the Beautiful.
Kim and her daughter, Jada

Immediately after her win, Clijsters climbed over seats and up into the stands where she ran to the arms of her husband ... 

So romantic!!!

Tonight's US Open Tennis match at the Arthur Ashe Stadium was terrific.  With thanks for the tickets from friends Dina and Bob of the USTA, we enjoyed a wonderful match. Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert made a special appearance.  Eric spotted TV actor Denis Leary in the audience.  It took exactly one hour for 2nd seed Kim Clijsters to triumph over 7th seed Vera Zvonareva, 6-2, 6-1 in the Women's Final.

Kim is a resident of Wall Township, NJ, one-time home of the F9F Cougar aircraft which Eric and Dina are currently restoring aboard Intrepid.  Kim has won 21 consecutive matches at the U.S Open.  Tonight was her 3rd U.S. Open Championship which earned her a $2.2 million paycheck.

On the way home to New Jersey, the George Washington Bridge was lit up and we saw the twin spotlights lighting the skyline where the Towers once stood at Ground Zero.
