One of the countless benefits of working for Hanesbrands is the
ability to fill a seat each year at the Winston-Salem Tennis Open!
Where our Champion brand has another opportunity to shine!
I love tennis!
So I pulled out my now vintage '93 US Open t-shirt and
headed out to the semi-finals last night with my sweetie!
It was a lovely evening for tennis!
And, to spend a little extra time with the amazing people I work with!
See what I mean?... Lovely!
Last night's semi-final match was played by Jerzy Janowicz of Poland...
And, Sam Querrey of the United States. He's
from California, but lives in Las Vegas... Just to be exact!
It was great tennis!
Not quite the thrill of watching my biggest crush,
Bjorn Borg defeat McEnroe at Wimbledon in 1980...
But great tennis nonetheless!
Although loyal to Sam, the American... It was
clear that Jerzy had the attention of the crowd!
In the end, despite 18 aces delivered by Querrey...
The better competitor won...
And, I ended up with one of the autographed
tennis balls Jerzy lobbed at us from the court!
Of course, watching Jerzy play last night,
we couldn't not return today for the finals!
Despite the fact that it was blazing hot at 12:30PM when the match began!
Jerzy's challenger today was Czech veteran, Lukas Rosol!
Knowing Jerzy won a prior meeting with Rosol last year
in Marseille, I was hopeful he'd come away with the win...
However, despite giving 150% on one of the hottest days this month...
It was not to be!
Regardless of who wins or loses...
I just love to watch great tennis!
And, this year's Winston-Salem Open didn't disappoint in the least!
And, I cannot wait for next year!
The other thing I couldn't wait for was to get home to do this...
Because I wasn't kidding... It was really, really hot out there today!
