Here it is - the final week of the Olympus U.S. Open Series. Because next week is the start of the U.S. Open! Yay!

This past week. Roger Federer defeated Mardy Fish in Cincinnati to take home the Western & Southern Financial Group Masters' trophy.  And what a lovely trophy it is!  Just see the photo to the left.  I'm sure there's a story explaining what appears to be one of my Grandma's family heirloom vases held upside down and super-sized.  Here's another view just to make sure you're really appreciating this thing:

On the women's side, as of this writing, they have not even finished their semi-final matches in Montreal's Rogers Cup tournament. So Carolina Wozniacki and Svetlana Kuznetzova are waiting around to play each other as are Victoria Azarenka and Vera Zvonareva. Hopefully, they'll finish soon.

So - just one more week of this Olympus U.S. Open Series! Both the men and the women will be in the "Pilot Pen Tennis at Yale" tournament in New Haven, Connecticut. That means we only have to watch one tournament this week!
