We realize we’ve been missing in action here on TSF for the last couple of weeks, but we’re amping things up just in time for the US Open to begin come next Monday. We found out over the last few days that Serena Williams and Juan Martin del Potro will both be missing in action on the courts of the National Tennis Center in Queens, but that women’s defending champion Kim Clijsters announced yesterday that she was fit to play and try to defend her crown.
All of this comes after a weird summer of tennis. We’ll have more on that later, but in the meantime, we’re wondering who your pick is to take the Open. Men’s? Women’s? Who will rise in Serena’s absence? Can Roger capture the Open crown with del Potro gone? Or is it time for one of those folks (Murray, Jankovic, etc.) to rise up and win his or her first slam?
Give us your choices for the winners of the year’s final Slam, and remember that anything can happen on the courts of New York.
