Aug 26, 2013

The 2013 US Open of Tennis marks everyone's return from a blissful summer back to work and school... so our favorite tennis players will try to give us something to cheer about in New York City. The 2013 US Open will be up and running from now until September 9th, so let's preview the competition.

Seeded Stars

Not too much has changed in the rankings for top players. Here is a list of the top 5 seeds for the major tennis players:

Women's Singles

  1. Serena Williams
  2. Victoria Azarenka
  3. Agnieszka Radwanska
  4. Sara Errani
  5. Na Li

Men's Singles

  1. Novak Djokovic
  2. Rafael Nadal
  3. Andy Murray
  4. David Ferrer
  5. Tomas Berdych

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.

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.

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.

The Cowboys have cut Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL, from the team. Is this an expression of the conformity policy so deeply rooted in American athletics?
