But Is It Art?

I don't want to go all "sports nut" on ya'll here, but was that Aggasi-Pavel match riveting stuff or what? Agassi pulled out one of his greatest late-career first round victories; down 0-4 in the third set, he refused to lose, and bent Pavel to his will. Aggasi is now playing the role that Jimmy Connors once played at the Open - the aging warrior who toughs it out for his adoring NY fan base one...last...time.

The New York Times' online coverage of the Open is terrific. The Times' art critic Michael Kimmelman is blogging from the Billie Jean King Tennis Center every day and his smart, punchy dispatches are well worth reading.

You are so right. Match was riveting.
Early on, Agassi's baby step gate on changeovers reminded me of a stroke victim in rehab. But presto -- as he got back into the game and the crowd got into it, he was all springy as he switched sides. I also thought Steffi looked quite hot on the cutaway shots.
Was it just me or was the red shirts Pavel wore very irritating?
