The finale of the 2016 tennis majors is approaching and there is very little question as to who the favorites are going into the event and whom the racket experts are picking to earn the title.
On the women’s side Serena Williams is, to no surprise, the number #1 seed for the Flushing, New York event. The men’s top seed, Novak Djokovic is No. 1, and comes into the late August tournament after an early exit in the Rio Summer Games. In truth, neither Williams nor Djokovic has seen live action since early exits at the Brazilian Olympics. Williams told the media after her loss in Rio that she was bothered by a right shoulder ailment. There must be something in the South American water because Djokovic complained that he wasn’t right for the Olympic event due to a wrist injury.
