Today was Arthur Ashe Kids Day at the US Open. The whole place was a zoo! Security was so high at the courts, I felt like I was at the airport.
I started my day off like I usually do on the training table, having a little work done. After I finished there, I had a great practice with Brian Baker.

After a little lunch, I had a good practice with Colin Altamarino. He’s coming off a great win at the US National Junior Championships at Kalamazoo and he’s a fellow Athletic DNA athlete.
