WASHINGTON, August 26, 2012 — The big weekend at the US Tennis Open in Flushing Meadows will be on September 8 and 9 when the Men and Women’s singles are played.

As of today, U.S.’s Serena Williams is favored by the odds makers to take the women’s title and Serbian Novak Djokovic the men’s title. Djokovic won the 2011 US Open, but Williams has not won an US Open since 2008, although she did just take home the gold at the Olympics.

However, lots can happen in two weeks as First, Second, and Third Rounds are played this week before moving into the Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Finals in week two. A relative newcomer might even make it into the Semifinals.
