    US Open Looming in Flushing Meadows

    Aug 26, 2011 5:48 PM by Sean

    The 2011 US Open Tennis Championship will get underway from Flushing Meadows this coming Monday with a great number of questions still lingering in the late summer air. Much of the media focus will be directed on the men's big four: Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Andy Murray. This has undisputedly been the year of Novak Djokovic. The 24-year-old Serbian has gone from being a perennial Grand Slam bride's maid to a seemingly unstoppable force in the tennis world. Djokovic won the Australian Open and Wimbledon earlier this year, but has yet to win the US Open thus far in his career.

    On the women's side, the US Open will mark the return of the sport's biggest female superstar - Serena Williams. Since recovering from a drawn out foot injury, the three-time US Open winner has won two ATP tournaments and appears to be ready to reclaim her place on top of the world rankings. Serena should face stiff competition from current world #1 Caroline Wozniacki, but many experts are picking a revitalized star as the favorite to meet Williams in the final at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Maria Sharapova dazzled tennis fans last week with an impressive win at the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati and could be in good enough form to win her first Grand Slam in three years.
