Today I had a great opportunity to tour the grounds of the US Open and Arthur Ashe Stadium. My assignment was to get photos of the Stadium and how it has changed since this will be the first US Open with the roof "superstructure" in place. The roof will not be operational until the 2016 US Open, but the major infrastructure is now in place. Here are a selection of photos from my tour around the grounds today.
