World Class Tennis Takes New Haven by Storm! 2016 Connecticut Open

Historic Hanami Coverage Makes History
World's First Photoblogumentary


Hot fun in the New Haven Sun. 
Mother nature was kind to the Connecticut Open
a WTA event the week before the US Open Tennis.

Sometimes, that makes it tough to get some 
Women to come if they want to rest the week before. 
Then, throw in that event in Rio called the Olympics, and then it even got more involved.

But thanks to the charm and respect that these tremendous athletes have for tournament director 
Anne Worcester, that wasn't a problem.

These internationally incredibley talented Women
love New Haven and Anne!

Thanks Anne for a great Week!

So many Olympic medalists came that in fact on Opening night we had a
ceremony of flags with the Women that represented
their country and their Gold, Silver and bronze medals!

Canadian star and Olympic Flag holder can't 
contain her excitement that after this
she's heading to Wooster Street for Apizza and Pasta!
