Coin toss

I spent a great day at the U.S. Open tennis tournament this past weekend. It was very exciting to see a lot of great tennis, though I didn't take so many photos. Did you know they toss a coin to decide who serves first. This is the coin toss before the match between Robin Soderling from Sweden on the right and the American Sam Querrey on the left. Soderling won the match. It was great fun!

Great action photo, but a "coin toss"?! From my active playing days, the racket was always spun on its head, and one would call the weave before it landed, "rough" or "smooth" to determine first serve. (Who carries coins on a tennis court, anyway! LOL!) Good to hear you had a fun time there.
