A Re-Visit to the Arthur Ashe Kids Day 2010

With the US Open starting this week, thought it would be nice for some of my new readers to see this event. For a wonderful cause, and named after a very lovely man, Arthur Ashe. This event is the Saturday before the US Open begins and it is great for the kids and adults alike. 

Here are the tennis players who participated in the event. It was a fun time for all the kids who attended and raised money for a great cause ..........the players seemed to enjoy themselves as well from all the smiles!! 
every year there is different art for the US Open banners and guidebook 
the area where interviews were given and you had to have that "special" pass to get into 
Patty Schnyder from Switzerland relaxing on the grounds
Svetlana Kuznetsova from Russia at practice courts 
lots of cool stuff to purchase at the Nike shop 
love the Johnny Mac tee here 
the folks who help you navigate the grounds are always dressed great by Polo Ralph Lauren 
Nick Cannon was master of the tennis players 
American tennis stars Andy Roddick and Melanie Oudin 
Lindsay Vonn, Melanie Oudin and 2010 US Open runner up Novak Djokovic
Roger Federer, Kim Clijsters and Rafael Nadal 
all the players really seemed to enjoy the fun of the day

the 2 best tennis players on the planet? more than likely !!

Hope you enjoyed my day...check out my flickr for more photos from Arthur Ashe Kids Day and also Tennis Panorama News for all the latest goings on in the ATP and WTA tours.
