I hadn’t thought that I would complete the fan slam by attending all four of the tennis majors. I was happy to have visited all three in 2009. Since then, I have been content to make my annual trek to New York City for the US Open with the wonderful Wimbledon 2017 still emblazoned in my memories.
However, a change of fortunes within the past few months has allowed me to make one of my travel dreams come true. I am headed to the Australian Open!
Now, I just hope that Federer plays nice and sticks around for a few more days, so I will get a chance to see him on Laver Arena, if I can.
As I took a quick look through my pictures from 2009, I am amazed at the players I have seen and the matches I have been lucky to watch live.
Quite a few players came and went, but some old favorites are still standing.
Happy fan slam!
My fan slam: 2009 RG, Wimbledon, USO
