This is Marco with TennisPAL and this is
the Tennis Minute the US Open is finally here the tennis world is now descending
upon New York City where they will fight it out for the last Grand Slam of the
season in the women’s draw Naomi Osaka is the defending champion however she
has completely fizzled since splitting with Sascha Bajin look for her
exiting early or pulling out completely with injury. The one everybody wants to
talk about is Serena Williams how bad is that back injury that forced her to
retire in Canada and to pull out of Cincinnati? If that injury is healed I
expect to see her in the final in terms of the rest of the field I would be
surprised if Madison Keys continues playing lights-out tennis on her way to
the US Open final Madison Keys had a splendid Cincinnati
finding her game and beating top talent on a way to the title another American
to watch is Sofia Kenin she revels in the hard courts and her results is
summer with semifinal appearances in Canada and Cincinnati that she’s a real
deal what about the number one seed Ashleigh Barty
I am conflicted about Barty. One day she’s looking like the number one player
the next day she gets beat by good but not top-10 players in New York it’s
gonna be tough especially when the American crowds are rooting for players
like Williams and Kenin and Keys. Lastly there’s Andreezcu she was hot winning
the Canadian Open and then she got injured but let’s see what happens with
her she could go deep too
