With the U.S. Open well underway, I’m glued to the scores and stats of one of my favorite tennis championships. As you can imagine, I’m a huge tennis fan and try to follow most of the matches of the great championships, like the U.S. Open. With that said, I have some favorites that I’m rooting for.

For the women, I think Serena Williams might take the win. Even though Serena was seeded 28th at the Open, I feel like she can still pull through and take the championship like her win in 2008. She’s an amazing tennis player and an inspiration to all women athletes and I wish her the best!

As for the men, I think either Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal, seeded first and second respectively, will take the win. They’re both great players and either of them would deserve the championship. But without a doubt, I’m still rooting for my boy Roger Federer to win one more. He’s one of my favorite players and I would love to see him win another US Open like three years ago.

I can’t wait to see who wins the Open this year, but I’m also curious to see who you all are rooting for.

Who do you want to win the US Open this year?
