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.

Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
