So, further down is an amazing clip of Leslie Odom Jr. singing the national anthem. But the festivities started off earlier with some talking, and them Phil Collins singing.
He sang "In The Air Tonight" as the roof opened for the first time during the Open.
Phil and Odom. We sat at the top side of the lower level.
Leslie Odom Jr. joined Phil Collins for a song after hr roof was opened.
So the far right is Michael Fior (a freind), Leslie Odom Jr., Billy Jean King, Phil Collins, Katrina Adams (a friend and President of the USTA - her 2 year term ends this year) and Mayor Bill DeBlassio who was ROUNDLY and LOUDLY Boo'ed when he spoke. Many New Yorkers, not a fan of Billy D.
