Last night we had tickets to the Western & Southern Women’s Semi-final Tennis tournament in Mason Ohio. Our tickets were for the Women’s evening session and it was outstanding! Great seats, great crowd and of course great tennis! To start the evening session off just right, Rafael Nadal walked right past me within arms reach, and I was able to snap a few pictures of him before the crowd completely surrounded him. Definitely easy on the eyes and a great tennis player!
We then made our way to our seats; excellent view, fantastic fans, perfect weather and the premiere match of the evening began, Serena Williams vs. Li Na. Game on!
The match started a bit slow for both players, some unforced errors and a few double faults but overall once each settled in, it was definitely down to business. Williams went up 4-1 in the first set but shortly after Li made a run at it to tie up at 4. Forcing the set to a 7-5 finish with Williams hammering it home. The second set played out much like the first with short bursts of resistance from Li, but in the end Williams was too much for the defending champion to handle.
I’ve put together a short video of the nights play if you weren’t able to watch it live or on television. Enjoy!
