Big, big tennis, gritty plays and world-class crushing action were not to be missed this year at the Connecticut Open at Yale, New Haven. The level of play was top-tier, and the pros made every effort to keep calm, cool and collected. But in the heat of the point, no matter how hard they tried to keep their emotions in check, their faces and posture would tell another story. Intensity of focus, unwavering drive, desire to win, disillusionment of defeat, thrill of victory…were all written in the twitches, creases, expressions and poses.
