Lil Wayne backs Nadal, Clijsters in U.S. Open

When Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., (a/k/a Lil Wayne) isn't cutting some of the freshest and most inventive music of today, the Grammy-award winning rap artist can be found watching, talking or blogging about sports. Even while serving an eight-month prison term on Rikers Island stemming from a 2007 weapons charge, Wayne finds time to opine on the latest news and release new music. His latest single, "Right Above It," dropped Aug. 17 and was the top debut on this week's charts at No. 6, marking the New Orleans native's highest debuting single as a lead artist. We asked Wayne, who is an avid tennis fan, to share his thoughts on the upcoming U.S. Open, which begins Monday in New York. We mailed our request along with a self-addressed stamped envelope and three leafs of SI stationery ... and Wayne's thoughtful outlook for the tournament arrived in our mailbox yesterday. (Post your questions and messages to Wayne in the comments and we'll pass them along.)
