Image Credit: Brian To/FilmMagic.comGood news for tennis fans who like a little side of beautiful music to go with their high-stakes matches: American Idol season 7 champ David Cook has been booked to perform “America the Beautiful” at the 2010 U.S. Open men’s finals on Sept. 12, EW has learned exclusively. Cook’s performance will be included during CBS’ coverage of the event*. Now hopefully, Novak Djokovic can take home this year’s U.S. Open crown, and complete my fantasy day of music and sporting awesomeness. Who else is completely stoked about this news? And can anyone tell me if it’s possible to program my DVR this far in advance? Sound off in the comments!

*Because, c’mon, failure to do so would have to result in an FCC fine or something, right?
