US King and Queen
The US Open is one of the 4 Grand Slam events and this will be the first time Andy Murray plays as the reigning champion Grand Slam Champion and last year's US Open champ. Serena WIlliams is the reigning US Open champ for the ladies.
The Big 4
It's hard to believe but since 2005, Roger Federer, Rafael, Andy, and Novak have won 33 of the 34 Grand Slam titles. However, there is a lot of hype brewing about the 6'6 monster from Argentina by the name of Juan Martin Del Potro. Juan is bigger in size than the big 4 combined, but can he win? If he figures out how to win, he might be the next unbeatable tennis superstar.
Sloan Swinging for Stardom
The next women's big star is definitely Sloane Stephens who beat Serena at the 2013 Australian Open. She's only 20-years-old and the US Open seems like the perfect place for her to make her first big boom in the Tennis World.
Double Pay Day
The Singles prize will be 2.6 million US dollars for the champions and over 34 million for all the prize winning players.That is a big raise from the normal 26 million. So you can expect the players to be elevating their games to get the dough.
