The Avenue of Aces is located on the magnificent grounds of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center—home of the US Open. Surrounded by beautiful landscaping, it forms the pathway between the east gate entrance and the historic Arthur Ashe Stadium (click here to see the layout plan). Your personalized paver will forever link you to the US Open, the world’s ultimate tennis proving ground.

These pavers can be bought by groups for players.  We bought a bronze paver for a fan club I run for Pete Sampras, we had the name samprasfanz put on the paver.  Murraysworld should look into getting a paver for Andy.  Our club raised $2500 for our paver and when you walk through the US Open grounds you can walk through these gardens.  The money they collect goes to USTA Serves which is doing great things for kids tennis, like the racquets with the shorter handles, smaller courts, and the bigger balls.  It would be a great honor for Andy, and considering the way he feels about kids, I think it would make him happy.

Yes, what happened to ak400!
He got a permanent ban after comments made during the USO and posting a huge pic of the Swiss flag on one of the threads.

Thanks for the correction.  I really should never rely on my memory, especially as Andy didn't even play Fed at the USO.  doh

I know this is a bit late to reply about this subject, but I have just found and registered with this website.  It's great.

I was in Dunblane on Sunday, the atmosphere was electric and the heavy shower of rain certainly didn't dampen the enthusiasm.  I arrived about 10.30am and finally got my autograph from Andy at just after 2.00pm.  It was well worth the wait.  He seemed to take everything in his stride and had a permanent grin on his face.  He may have said part of the day went by in a blur for him, but for those of us in the crowd waiting for our moment with him, we will remember the event for a very long time.  It was a real priviledge to get the chance to say 'Well Done Andy' personally.  He is a cool guy.

I thought I would share a couple of my photos with you.

Ah, yes, much more scenic than Kirkintilloch though!  Which I am sure can be said for your location now.
