So in august we will see US OPEN .. For me it will be not so interesting. You must answer - why?
Just because of Federer's knee injury and he can't play in this tournament.
Guess Djokovic will get the trophy again!

What is your favorite memory from this tournament?!
Mine is that incredible Federer's shot between the legs against Djokovic.

I mainly bet on Women's tennis.

Here is a quick preview on the Women's US Open.

Serena Williams is hot favourite and I can't see too many others capable of winning it.

Possible finalists

Keys has been in good form and is my outsider to make the final.
Kerber and Muguruza are probably the next best players in it after Serena but Muguruza's record is poor at the US Open, not ever making it past the 2nd round and I can see her losing in the 1st week again this year and will be looking at her match ups closely to try and pick an upset play. Kerber's record is somewhat better but she still hasn't made it to the quarterfinals since making hte semi's in 2011.
I think we could see an outsider make the finals bit like we did last year.

Possible Semi-Finalists (In addition to the 4 listed above)

Other chances to make Semi's
KA Pliskova
Again I think we will see 1 or 2 long shots make the semi's this year.

Players to look for upsets against in the 1st week:
KA Pliskova

Well nothing to expect so much with the US Open. Without Roger Federer the US open is not making any noise. I guess this will be an easy year for Novak Djokovic.

US Open Tennis: Agnieszka Radwanska - Ana Konjuh

Ana Konjuh bacame the youngest player in almost a decade to win a main tour event last year, she was a great junior, winning both the Australian and US Opens, that title here in New York was hard earned and she had to beat Ostapenko, Bellis and Chirico , three players who have made a huge impact in the seniors recently, just to make the semis. She has already faced today's opponent, the world number 4, Agnieszka Radwanska, at Wimbledon in the summer, losing 9-7 in the 3rd, even that scoreline doesn't quite tell the full story, Konjuh would have won had she not picked up an injury during the match and even then had match points, including one which hit the net and hung in the air for (seemingly) seconds before deciding to drop on the "wrong" side for the young Croatian.

We have not seen much of her since, but she won four matches in New Haven in build up and has looked good here and has been serving big, pretty much almost on a par with Naomi Broady who had Radwanska in trouble early in their second round match up, winning 30 of 40 points on first serve despite losing the second set 6-3. I have nothing but admiration for Radwanska who is the most intelligent of players and has an incredible defence and always plays to her strengths, but she is never going to blast anyone off court and I think there will be a few cheap points for Konjuh, who will mix things up and come to the net and she is not without a chance if she just does a little better with her second serve than she did at the All England Club. Agnie in three again would not surprise, but this total line could easily be covered in two and has to be the way to go.
