ExxonMobil Tennis 2017

I was fortunate enough to get a ticket to the tennis from a friend of mine. We got to see World Number 1 Andy Murray playing against Jeremy Chardy.

The organizers have improved things a bit and got stricter about kids going to the tournament, so this time there were no disruptions due to noise. Everyone seemed to be mindful of not using flash photography as well.

The first set Murray won 6-0. Chardy just couldn't get his game, or his serve, together and so the set was pretty dull to watch. Thankfully he regrouped and gave Murray a run for his money in the second set, Murray won but on tiebreak, 7-6. Much more exciting to watch.

A friend is going to try to get tickets for the final. It's already sold out so I don't hold out much hope.
