Here is a selection of images from Day 3 of the 2012 US Open. Things are starting to heat up, and emotions were running high on many of the courts yesterday. I caught the tail end of a few very intense matches, including a couple five set battles. 

It was nice to get some good expression out of the players. Screams, fist pumps, and racquet throws serve as a nice break from the normal forehand, backhand, and serve photos.

Here is a link to the photo galleries from the day.

Now, on to Day 4!
