Ed. note: I spent all day on the outside courts. LOVE day one high stakes action with warm ups and matches side by side on the outer courts. Players have to deal with so much distraction – spectators moving, talking, music from the main courts. It was a hot day – prob 90+ on the courts. A true test of focus and nerves.

Big bright bag of Sugarpova out there. Color galore.
