It was rainy in the morning.  But it became fine and I could see the beautiful Super moon tonight.

This morning there was the final of US Open Tennis Championship games.  Unfortunately our Kei Nishikori has lost.  Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori have played for 7 times before and Nishikori has won for 5 times.  Therefore we expected him to be a champion at this grand slam but he lost straight.
The result was not good, but this was the record for Japanese tennis players. 
I hope someday he will become a champion.

September 9 is choyo (重陽), one of the seasonal festivals such as January 7, March 3, May 5, and July 7. Odd numbers are positive, and even numbers are negative.  Nine is the biggest odd number and September 9 is double nine.  Choyo literally means piling positive or double positive.  It is celebrated with chrysanthemum.
