I just have to share. I will start by saying that I am not a tennis fan, but my husband won tickets to the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati. He couldn't find anyone to go with him, and so I agreed. I knew it would be hard because of my back issue I'm having, which I suspect a herniated disc at the L5 and S1 so sitting is hard. I managed to work to sit in a way that put the least pressure. I wasn't comfortable the whole day and stood every chance I got. It ended up being the longest 3 set match in ATP history, and many would say it was one of, if not the best match they've ever witnessed. It was the top two players in the world. Djokavic and Alcarez. It was so incredible to witness, and Djokavic said it was one of the toughest matches he has ever played! The best part is my body is not too angry with me today! I just feel drained from the sun!
