A Tennis Reporter on Familiar Grounds

From a Times Insider column by Matthew Futterman headlined “A Tennis Reporter on Familiar Grounds”:

As a reporter who covers tennis for The New York Times, I am often asked which of the four Grand Slam tournaments — the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon or the U.S. Open — is my favorite.

I admit I’m biased, as I’ve lived in New York most of my life. But my answer has never wavered: the U.S. Open.
