S6 Week 24, US Open, USA, Grand Slam!

US OPEN





Welcome to Flushing Meadows, New York, for the season's final Grand Slam. 19 of the 23 Slams played so far on OWTT have had different winners - will we have another new Grand Slam winner here in New York? Venus has chosen not to defend her title, as she is taking a break until the end of the season. With not long to go until the Year End Championships, this tournament will be crucial in players' campaigns for the season-ending Top 8. Let's check out the big guns here in New York....



The Favourites




#2 Daniela Hantuchova – Hantuchova has had an impressive hard court swing, reaching the final in Stanford, semis in Los Angeles and the quarters in New Haven. She feels that her second Slam is long overdue.

#6 Alize Cornet – She has been the standout player in recent weeks, winning in Stanford and reaching the semis in Toronto and New Haven. She has also beaten Hantuchova several times in the last few weeks, which will fill her with confidence.




The Contenders





#13 Nicole Vaidisova – A winner in Los Angeles and a quarterfinal in Toronto stand Vaidisova in good stead. She has got the weapons to go all the way here.


#19 Victoria Azarenka – She reached the final in Los Angeles as well as the semis last week in New Have. The former world #1 looks to be back to playing some of her best tennis.


#26 Maria Sharapova – She took the title in Toronto and reached the quarters in New Haven. She is playing with lots of confidence right now and really believes she can win this tournament.




The Dark Horses





#3 Lindsay Davenport – She reached the semis in Stanford and is a two time Slam winner. Her experience could count for a lot here in New York.


#10 Kim Clijsters – The former champion here has worked her way back into the Top 10 and is playing some fantastic tennis, reaching the quarters in Toronto and New Haven.


#29 Jelena Jankovic – She just won the title in New Haven and will be riding high on confidence here. She is a former Top 3 player and she knows she has the game to beat the top players if she puts her mind to it.







S1 – Zvonareva def. (Q) Cornet 6-4 5-7 6-0
S2 – (1) S.Williams (ret) def. (4) Cornet 6-0 0-6 6-4
