On Day 3 of the 2012 US Open, I got to the grounds early to get a good seat for a particular match, and my preparation paid off as I triumphantly took my seat along the baseline, but in retrospect, I was more lucky to be sitting across from the court that Kim Clijsters was preparing for her match against Laura Robson later that day in Ashe.
