US Open Tennis Live
With the nail-biting matches, the best shots ever played, the most competitive tennis tournament has finally come back this year. We’ve all heard of this before, the US Open is one of the most viewed and talked about tournament played, and definitely the biggest player in the US.
Any tennis fan will be eager to watch this tournament which will be featuring some of the best players, both men and woman, from across the world all coming together in New York City. The fourth and final Grand Slam is here.
Last year’s winner Andy Murray will be coming back at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center to fight it out against the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
Since it’ll be played on hard courts, the obvious prediction would be Rafael Nadal who has been in form lately, as he won the Roger Cup, and is known to be undefeated on hard courts.
Roger Federer has been out of form lately since his age is finally getting to him, and Novak Djokovic has been having a bad year lately. And since Andy Murray has become inconsistent in his performance, the arrows point towards Nadal being the winner. But with a tournament of this large a scale, anything can happen.
When you talk about the women’s matches, Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, and Maria Sharapova are the top contenders, but there is some underdog challenge as well from the likes of Sloane Stephens, Laura Robinson, Genie Bouchard and Madison Keys.
Serena has been performing extremely consistent and extremely well, winning 8 of the 10 finals that she’s been in. She’s so far dominated over both Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova, but only time will tell which one of them is to win the last Grand Slam title.
