US Open Tennis History
The Tournament started 127 years ago, but its format has changed unrecognisably these days. The US Open history is fascinating, a Tournament that started as an all male affair, to a mixed Tournament, competed for by virtually every top ranked player in the World. It is testament to those who founded the competition and we are certain that they would be delighted to learn that this year over 650.000 spectators will watch live tennis at the Billie Jean King Centre in Flushing and over a billion people will watch worldwide.
US Open Tennis Mens Odds 2013
The top seed for the Mens Championship is World No.1 and Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic who will be hoping to win his 3rd Grand Slam in 2011 to follow up his Australian Open and Wimbledon wins. Rafa Nadal is the defending Champion at Flushing Meadow and will be a major threat as always but he will need to find a way to get past Djokovic who seems to have his number at the moment,
Andy Murray was the finalist three years ago and he will be hoping to go one better in 2011 as he looks to make that break through in a Grand Slam tournament. He reached the Semi-Final at Wimbledon and has risen up the rankings steadily to find himself at No four at the moment. Novak Djokovic has had a brilliant year and he is always a a danger as he showed in winning the Australian Open and Wimbledon already this season. These three are the top seeds this year. US Open men’s seedings.
US Open Tennis Womens Championship
The US Open Women’s top seeds will not feature Serena Williams, who is the Wimbledon Champion following her success in July. She has proven herself to be the best player in the world but will be missing after picking up a foot injury. Venus Williams will always be her biggest threat and she is due a big performance here. Venus is a former US Open Champion so knows how to win in New York so will be well backed to do well as always.
Maria Sharapova was the US Open Champion in 2006 and looks to be coming back into form following a good lay-off and may well go close. She seems to be improving steadily again and the crowd and punters would love to see the Russian right back to her very best in New York.
US Open Tennis Seeds and Draw
The rankings are all important in any Tennis Grand slam and that will be the case at the US Open this season as all the players look to pick up the highest seeding possible before the US Open Tennis Draw is made. All the players will want to be seeded as high as possible as they look to avoid some of the big names in the first week at Flushing Meadow and punters will be able to follow the US Open Tennis Seeds when they are released in the build up to the tournament. It will be interesting this year in the Womens draw with Serena Williams likely to go to flushing Meadow without a seeding having been injured and she will be a dangerous floater for the big players in round one.
