The US Open is Under Way

I know this isn't going to be the most popular post on my blog, in fact many of you probably wonder why I am continually putting up posts on Tennis, what can I say I am a fan. Well I have today off, and this is actually Day 2 of the tournament and so far so good. What I love about the US Open are the night matches, there is nothing like the New York Crowds at night with a few beers in them. Tonight we have Roddick and Sharapova which should be good, but I am wanting to see Blake at a night match, but I am sure if he makes it a match or two in, that will be the case. Speaking of James Blake, has anyone read his book? I have it on my list of things I need to buy, the book is Breaking Back and is close to the top of the Best Sellers List, which is awesome for the Harvard Grad.

So who am I picking to win the tournament? Well that is a tough question, I am hoping for Blake to make a run on the mens side of things but here are my picks.

Mens: Roger Federer: Can you really pick anyone else?
Women: Serena Williams: She looked like she was playing well last night, and if she gets on a roll, no one will beat her.
