Star-packed US Open Starts today

The U.S. Open is the fourth and last grand slam tournament of the year, so players have one last 771px-US_open_Logo.svgchance to add an important trophy to their collection in 2015.

Training is now over and after winners were designed in Cincinnati and Canada, it is time for the best tennis players in the world to try and win the big thing.

Djokovic failed to win Roland Garros and then fired back with an emphatic victory at Wimbledon, so he is entitled to be optimistic about the U.S. Open. The problem is that he was defeated in the final stage at the Canadian open and Cincinnati, by his archrivals. Murray and Federer prevailed at the end of great tournaments and they will try to replicate their performance at Flushing Meadows.

The Scotsman is on fire and his defensive tennis seems to pay off, but the Serbian is not the only serious contender for him. Federer defeated him into straight sets in Cincinnati before winning against the world number one and the two will miss no later than the semifinals.

The veteran Swiss money is trying to wrap up his illustrious career with the bang and place extraordinary tennis for his age.

In the ladies competition, Serena Williams is once again credited by bookmakers with the first chance to win the tournament. She is aging and has a hard time competing at the same level throughout the tournament, but knows how to make the most of key games.

During preliminary tournaments that serve the purpose of getting players used to the hard surface, she struggled against weaker opponents, but then won with relative ease in the final act.

Sharapova spend a lot of time on the bench mending injuries and when she steps into the spotlight she had a hard time replicating the performances of 2013 and 2014. She has fallen into the third-place and will need Serena before the final, so her chances to win the U.S. Open in 2015 are slim.

In the second half of the drawing, Kvitova and Halep are trying to secure a place in the final and this is one of the most expected games at the grand slam tournament.

Kvitova also struggled with injuries for a while but she seems to bet on track after winning at New Haven and her offensive tennis is perfectly suited for the hard court.
