2010 US Open tennis

Hurricane Earl was supposed to threaten the US Open tennis tournament in Flushing, NY, but instead it was Rafael Nadal blowing through the field en route to winning the final after a one-day rain delay. With the US Open victory, Nadal completed a career Grand Slam, becoming one of only seven men to accomplish the feat. In the women's bracket, Kim Clijsters won her third crown and took home a record purse - $2.2 million - in the process. ( 22 photos total)

Iffy quality photography plus not a good selection. Some of the players are unknown but there is just one photo of Nadal (actually his back), one of only seven men in history to achieve a career grand slam by winning this title.

I agree with previous comment ! We see The King"s back. I am sure there where more significant shots during the tournament, even if some of the players are unknown !

I love Serbian tenis.Dokovic is a fun guy with a lot of potential, Ana was in the top and will again, Jankovic has been in decline, but it will be good again, and Tipsarevic was "lazy", and has lots of talent
