We are so excited that the US Open starts today (August 25th) in our home, New York City. With so many exciting players and match ups to be watched, we wanted to share our top female pics!
SERENA WILLIAMS - No. 1 seed
Top ranked tennis star Serena Williams, predominately brings the heat to all tournaments she enters. While she has not won a major this year, she does have 17 Slam titles under her belt. Coming up short until now in this season, could just be the push this mega athlete needs to bring it home.
AGNES RADWANKA - No.4 seed
While 25 year old Agnieszka Radwanska has never been past the fourth round in eight previous U.S. Opens, she is a 2012 Wimbledon finalist. Radwanska is off to a promising start on day 1 of the US Open as she defeated her first opponent in 46 minutes. Her best result in this year’s Slams was at the Australian Open were she lost in the semifinal.
MARIA SHARAPOVA - No. 5 seed
The Russian born beauty Maria Sharapova (27) is sure to bring intensity to her matches with sheer effort. While she is matched up in the most difficult quarter of the draw, you never know what will happen if she brings her A game! Win or lose, we are excited to watch her pour her heart onto the court!
VICTORIA AZARENKA - No. 16 seed
This Belarus native is a two time Australian Open champion and two time U.S. Open runner-up to Serena Williams. What makes Azarenka exciting to watch is her ability to match up to Serena Williams. Azarenka also holds the underdog card for us as she has battled both foot and knee injuries this year that has foxed her ranking to drop 2nd to 17th.
EUGINIE BOUCHARD - No. 7 seed
Canadian born Eugenie Bouchard is a true wild card. Her confidence and determination allow her to continually overcome early on complications in tournaments. While she regularly loses early on in tournaments, she remains the only player, man or woman, to advance at least to the semifinals of all three Slams. Bouchard in these semi finals was defeated each time by the eventual winner (Na, Sharapova, and Kvitova). It's great to watch her play and continue to grow as an athlete!
