Even locals that aren't tennis fans (you don't love tennis?!?!) get caught up in the excitement of America's Grand Slam tennis tournament and respite from the dog days of New York summer. Serena Williams defends her title, while Andy Murray will try to win a second championship for England, and all the familiar names like Rafa, The Joker, and of course Roger Federer will all be there as well. Some cool add-ons: Arthur Ashe Kids Day on 8/24, which features a kids' tennis clinic with Jim Courier; a Ball Flight Simulator sponsored by Emirates -- wherein you can win an Emirates vacation to Milan; and tennis trivia, which could also net you business class flights on Emirates -- so brush up on your game and head to Queens!
