Tennis: US Open Results from Day 1: Odds to win Australian Open

Day #2 of the US Open Tennis tournament in Flushing Meadows, New York opens at the bottom half of the draw and features three former US Open champions: five-time winner and No. 2 seed Roger Federer, No. 3 seed Andy Murray and also includes Roland Garros champ Stan Wawrinka and the number 6 seed Tomas Berdych.

Tennis fans from around the globe will be focused on the women’s championship as much as the men’s, although the television ratings might now back the statement, as this year racket fanatics will have a chance to witness history, as Serena Williams attempts to become the first Grand Slam winner since Steffi Graf accomplished the feat in 1988.

Other news worth noting is that Roger Federer is making his 64th consecutive Grand Slam tournament appearance on Tuesday as he takes on Argentine Leonardo Mayer, who held five match points in their previous meeting in Shanghai last October. Federer sits on the brink of making his 16th straight US Open start.

On Tuesday night in Flushing Meadows, New York, in the evening’s twilight session, Andy Murray will square off against Australian Nick Kyrgios. Murray landed in New York this past weekend coming off 35th career title which he claimed at the ATP Masters 1000 event in Montreal, Canada.

On Monday, August 31st, Day 1 near Auther Ashe Stadium, Serena Williams began the final leg of her Grand Slam journey with an easy victory over Vitalia Diatchenko. And while Serena’s win was far from an upset there were several semi-startling results Monday including early exits for Kei Nishikori and Ana Ivanovic.

The Day 2 matches can be seen on ESPN and ESPN2.

After the US Open tournament ends with a champion the next Grand Slam event won’t take place until January of 2016 when the top players in the world make the trek to Melbourne for the Australian Open.
