Best Predictions for U.S. Open Tennis Champions
The U.S. Open Tennis Championships got underway Monday, going through mid-September. After Round 1 finishes Tuesday night, Round 2 covers the next two days. Round 2 takes over Wednesday and Thursday. Then, Round 3 is Friday and Saturday. This pushes the tournament into September over Labor Day weekend. Sunday and Monday are Men’s and Women’s Rounds of 16. The quarterfinals take place Tuesday and Wednesday with the semifinals following on Thursday and Friday. Saturday and Sunday see the U.S. Open Tennis Championships finishing up September 9th and 10th, Saturday and Sunday respectively.
The U.S Open Tennis Championships take place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, NY. It is one of the world’s largest public tennis facilities.
Serena Williams is pregnant, which automatically puts her on the sidelines to cheer on sister Venus Williams. Though Venus has a shot, as always, her Wimbledon finals contender Garbine Muguruza will be back to try to win two Grand Slams in a row.
Maria Sharapova is in the U.S. Open Tennis Championships in a wildcard bid, and she will always bring a strong game. Other popular potential winners include Simona Halep, Angelique Kerber, and Karolina Pliskova.
Roger Federer killed at Wimbledon, so he is certainly in the talk for U.S. Open Tennis Champion. Rafael Nadal is another classic tough competitor in the men’s division. Nadal and Federer have played each other many times over the course of their careers. However, never in Flushing, NY. Their potential semi-final matchup will make for an intense match, but that’s weeks down the line. Andy Murray is a potential, but his hip injury puts his ability to play as a “to be determined.”
Furthermore, the division will miss Novak Djokovic, who recently retired due to injury and fatigue during Wimbledon. Last year’s U.S. Open Tennis Champion Stan Wawrinka will also be out due to injuries.
