Preview of the U.S. Open

News

us-open-2013

The 2015 U.S. Open is almost upon us. From August 31 – September 13, we’ll get the chance to witness tennis history in the making.

Taking place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, the tournament is part of the 2015 ATP World Tour and the 2015 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category.

Here are some things we’re looking forward to come time for the 135th edition of the U.S. Open…

The Fashion

This is an obvious one, but the court is just as much a catwalk as it is a place to serve it up. Since there is no strict dress code like Wimbledon, we expect to see some white ensembles, such as the Nike black/white design Maria Sharapova is confirmed to wear for the Open, but also some colorful ones like the Adidas Adizero dress Ana Ivanovic is rumored to don.

The Champions

Serena Williams is the three-time defending champion in the women’s singles event and obviously a fan favorite. Serena will also be playing to win and complete the calendar Grand Slam. She ranks No. 1 in the world in women’s singles tennis, with Maria Sharapova right behind her at No. 2 and Simona Halep following behind at No. 3. Will Serena be able to defend her title? Or, will one of these ladies defeat her?

Belinda Bencic, the young Swiss 18-year-old, is definitely younger than some of her opponents but just as mighty. Last week, she completed an absolute dream week on Sunday, lifting the Rogers Cup title in Toronto.

Novak Djokovic is currently ranked No. 1 in the world in men's singles tennis and has won nine major titles, so obviously the fan favorite in this upcoming tournament. By winning three Grand Slam titles in 2011, he became the sixth male player to win three Grand Slams in a calendar year. Currently, he's progressed alongside Roger Federer at the Cincinnati Masters this week.

We’re also looking forward to seeing what Rafael Nadal, “The King of Clay” will bring to the courts. He plays hard and has numerous Grand slams under his belt (14 to be exact) and ranks No. 8 in the world for men’s singles tennis. Most recently, he defeated Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 6-4 in Cincinnati during the ATP World Tour singles event.

We cannot forget about the most highly regarded tennis players in the world, Roger Federer. The Swiss native is ranked No. 2 in the world was recently a finalist at Wimbeldon but lost to Djokovic in the final. He is currently playing at Cincinnati, which is his first time back to court since Wimbledon.  Federer has been adding offense to his game for a long time now, which will help him as he tries to add an 18th Grand Slam title to his count at the Open.

The Instagrams

We will be at the U.S. Open during  the second week. Whether or not you’ve scored a ticket to the Open, you know you can’t wait to Instagram your courtside pics or view others’ on your own feed. Whether you aim to capture the action shot or an artsy/editorial one, just don’t forget to look out for flying tennis balls as well as follow us our Instagram account @letoile_sport for shots we will post.

The Celebrities

Everyone loves a good celebrity sighting and no doubt many show up for sporting events, especially one like the U.S. Open. In Federer's box you'll see celebrities like Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani to fashion editors like Anna Wintour; singers like Justin Timberlake to U.S. Ski champion Bode Miller. The U.S. Open has no doubt become a star-studded event. Keep your eyes peeled for your favorite celebs.
