The 2014 US Open is just getting underway, and tennis fans around the world are extremely excited. While many people will be watching the tennis matches no matter what happens, I have provided 10 bold predictions to prepare viewers for what will happen.
Federer has not won a Grand Slam tournament since Wimbledon in 2012, and the US Open will not bring an end to this stretch. The 33-year-old will flame out of the US Open in the fourth round, showing the world that the end is finally coming near.
Goffin has never made it past the first round of the US Open during his career, but this will change in 2014. The 23-year-old won his first career title earlier this month at the Austrian Open, and he will ride this momentum to the fourth round of the US Open at the very least.
Venus has seen a career resurgence of sorts during 2014, and she will ride a current wave of momentum to a first Grand Slam quarterfinal appearance since 2010.
Stephens is one of the top up-and-coming tennis players in the world today, and she will improve upon a fourth round finish at the 2013 US Open to advance to the semifinals of the 2014 tournament.
Murray has recently announced a split with his coach, which will affect his game in a negative fashion and result in being knocked out in the fourth round of the 2014 US Open.
Bouchard has advanced to at least the semifinals of the three previous Grand Slam tournaments in 2014, and she will again reach this point in 2014. The 20-year-old may not be a household name as of yet, but she will officially become a star in the tennis world after the 2014 US Open.
Both Djokovic and Azarenka have both lost the finals of the US Open in 2012 and 2013, but neither will make it this far in 2014. Azarenka is on a horrendous run of play, and Djokovic has recently admitted that tennis is not his top focus at the moment.
Williams is unanimously regarded as the best women's tennis player in the world today. But she has been incredibly shaky during the 2014 season, and her erratic play will result in a quarterfinal exit at the 2014 US Open.
Wawrinka won the 2014 Australian Open, and he seems to finally be rounding into form as one of the best men's players in the world. This status will finally be cemented with a victory at the 2014 US Open.
Wozniacki has seemingly been in a constant free fall since breaking up with Rory McIlroy, but things will finally change at the 2014 US Open. The 24-year-old has the talent to match up with the best in the world, and she will string together a run for the ages on the way to winning the US Open.
