With the US Open 2012 Grand Slam Tournament going on right now in New York, New York, one has to wonder where all those tennis balls go after the tournament is over. I'm sure that Roger Federer can't take them all home with him after he has finished up being so amazing.

Luckily, tennis balls have so many alternative uses for after you are done serving them at blistering speeds at your opponents. Using tennis balls as part of artwork is a great way to pay homage to the gentleman's sport. Another idea is to stitch these balls together to make some tennis-themed furniture. Put the chairs court side and keep things as tennis-centric as possible.

If you are feeling less creative though, you can always use the left over balls to play a game of fetch with man's best friend.
