Ready to Go

Carson CA--

We arrived Sunday evening (with all our luggage!) on one of the cloudiest days I've ever seen in Southern California, but after four days of snow and temperatures in 20s in Michigan, even 60 degrees and cloudy was a welcome change.

On the drive to Carson we turned on the car radio to see who had won the Masters (Zach Johnson?), but the news radio station had an interesting hierarchy of sports headlines. They started with the Dodgers, went on to the Angels, and then gave the two dead rubber results in the Davis Cup! THEN came the Masters results. Was this because Tiger didn't win? Or is Davis Cup big news around here? Here's Bonnie DeSimone's story for espn.com on James Blake's win on Friday.

We're heading over to the Home Depot center now, but just a note that I'm having internet problems at the hotel, and it's going to be a long day with seven matches scheduled per court today, so there may or may not be an update this evening. For results and schedule see usta.com.
