The tennis season is quickly reaching its conclusion, but not before the best men and women in the world do battle in Flushing, New York, to determine the 2015 U.S. Open champions in the final Grand Slam tournament of the year.
Serena Williams’ attempt for a Grand Slam makes this year’s U.S. Open even more intriguing than usual. Nobody has accomplished the incredible feat since Steffi Graf in 1988, and the American Williams will have the home crowd on her side.
The top three challengers to Williams are No. 2 Simona Halep, whom Williams beat for the French title; No. 3 Maria Sharapova, who has lost 17 times in a row to Williams; and No. 4 seed Caroline Wozniacki, Williams’ good friend and occasional on-court foe.
As for the men, Novak Djokovic has the opportunity to add another major to his remarkable season, but Roger Federer is fresh off a title at the Western & Southern Open and has plenty of momentum.
Federer will again try to capture his 18th major title and extend his record. His most recent grand slam victory came at Wimbledon in 2012. He won the U.S. Open five consecutive times from 2004 through 2008.
The action at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center will officially get started Aug. 31, but there is some business that needs to be handled before then. The all-important singles draws will be revealed in a live-streaming special Thursday, and while the tourney won’t be won or lost on that day, certain players can be put in much-better or much-worse positions than their opponents.
