US OPEN, Flushing, New York

Visit the U.S. Open Website

 

The 2011 US Open opened with a hurricane that swept up the east coast of the U.S., which delayed arrivals and disrupted player schedules during the first days of the tournament.  Players were plagued with injury and illnes, resulting in a record number of retirements from the tournament during the first week.  However, those left standing battled on, with many predictable results, and some surprises.  Images that follow are from the first week of play.  The photo array will be updated throughout the second week.  Enjoy!
