US Open Favorites Still In

28 Aug

Despite having some stuff issues which in the media automatically means pregnancy, Maria Sharapova, cruised through the opening round of the US Open. Sharapova who is ranked third defeated Melinda Czink of Hungary, 6-2, 6-2 at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

US Open favorite Serena Williams will play Tuesday against Coco Vandeweghe. Another US Open favorite Novak Djokovic, who has taken out Federer twice in the open, will play against Paolo Lorenzi Tuesday as well. Venus Williams will also take the court on Tuesday against fellow American Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Venus has been struggling so we will definitely have to see how far she makes it.

At Memorial, Tiger’s fist-pumping birdie catapulted Woods atop the leaderboard and led many to proclaim the fourteen-time major champion the favorite this week at Olympic. Now with one round under his belt, Tiger is in the hunt for number fifteen.

Woods meticulously controlled the ball in Thursday’s opening round. On the green, Tiger showed both accuracy and consistency including a forty-five foot gallery-rattling birdie putt on…
