    As we finished this year's Suicide Pools I want to add something else.
    This is my tenth year of playing this maddening game. I have enjoyed it greatly. And although I know that all the people involved have been thanked many times, I would line to do it one more time. To Scotty, Shtexas, JTC, Tog (running YCWJ), Drop (and I am certain I am missing somebody), you bring a lot of fun and joy to all of us. Most incredible, you have never rigged these damn things to win a medal yourselves, something which I would have done after the second first day exit in a row. It shows how great you are. And I would like to add:

    This year we gave Ti-Amie an Honorary Medal for services, much deserved and a small token of our appreciation. I believe that some consideration for such an honor should be bestowed on one of our dear members mentioned above. If not all.

    2017 US OPEN FAST FACTS

    Flushing, N.Y., September 12, 2017
    – The following will recap some of the highlights of the 2017 US Open:

    American Players

    Four American women reached the singles semifinals at the US Open for the first time since 1981.

    First-time US Open champion Sloane Stephens, first-time US Open finalist Madison Keys and first-time US Open semifinalist CoCo Vandeweghe joined two-time US Open champion Venus Williams in the semifinals.

    Eighty five American men and women competed in the US Open main draw and the US Open Qualifying Tournament – an increase of nearly 40 percent since 2013.

    2017 also marked the first time there was an all-American women’s singles final and an all-American junior girls’ final since 1981. Sixteen-year old Amanda Anisimova defeated 13-year old Coco Gauff, who was the youngest-ever girls’ singles finalist at the US Open, in the title match.

    David Wagner won his third US Open quad singles title, his eighth US Open quad doubles title and remained unbeaten in doubles at the US Open.

    Attendance

    Twenty of the 24 sessions comprising the US Open sold out.

    Total attendance for the 2017 US Open was 691,143.

    More than 100,000 fans visited the first-ever US Open Experience, a two-day recreation of the US Open during US Open Fan Week at the South Street Seaport Historic District in Manhattan.
    Social Media

    From August 28 to September 10, US Open social channels, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, posted 3.8k pieces of content that generated 18 million interactions and 92 million video views.

    Across Twitter and Instagram, hashtag #usopen was the most engaged hashtag of the 2017 Grand Slam season, producing 38 billion impressions.

    Record fan engagement on all social platforms resulted in unparalleled growth for every social channel. Overall interactions were up 625 percent and video views were up 556 percent.

    Digital Platforms

    For the third straight year, more than 10 million unique visitors engaged with US Open-owned-and-operated digital platforms – usopen.org and the US Open app, produced in partnership with US Open sponsor IBM – throughout the tournament.

    Those fans consumed more content than ever: 46 million visits (plus-15 percent vs. 2016), and 366 million page views (plus-23 percent vs. 2016).

    More than 63 percent of all page views came from outside the United States.

    Mobile consumption continues to drive growth, as more than 73 percent of the total unique audience came via a mobile device.
