Again, I just want to give a huge thank you to USTA NE and Jeff Waters. His donation last year of two tickets to the US OPEN MENS FINAL were won by Sarah and Mike Wilander of Worcester, two big tennis fans and good friends. What a game to see! Federer could not come through and the victory went to 20 year old Juan Martin Del Potro of Argentina.

Sarah and Mike won the best costume contest, dressed as "the cow went over the moon", Sarah's pregnant belly was handpainted as the earth, and Mr. Wilander's uh, cheeks were painted up as the moon. This donation was unbelievable! Sarah and Mike had almost a year to wait until they could use them, and every day of tennis was exciting leading up to the finals in Flushing Meadows. I know Sarah was wishing for Nadal. Instead, she got one of the most historical matches in men's history!

Juan Martin Del Potro will be 21 in a few days, September 23...what a party if he is still in the States doing pr. Of course if he wanted cocktails in his home country he can do just that. Here, Juan can win the US Open, but can't have any champagne with his victory. Imagine that.

As one of the winners of the tickets, I would also like to thank Jeff for his VERY generous gift. Hopefully this will encourage more folks to attend Cirque du Noir this year, and, moreover, try to put together a killer costume!
