Playing in New York City is always a tremendous thrill. To play in the Garden against my dear friend Serena, who is one of the all-time greats, was incredibly exciting. New York always has its own special buzz. There’s no better place to play. Serena and I both feed off the energy of these fans.
While tennis matches are always intense, I love playing the famed Madison Square Garden.
Here’s a diary of my day in the Big Apple.
