No.1 and No.2 Seeds To Do Battle In New York

Sep 7, 2013

The 2013 US Open Championships will see the the world’s top 2 ranked men’s and women’s players square off and do battle in their respective finals in the next 48 hours, world No.1 and tournament top seed Novak Djokovic will compete for the title against current world No.2 and tournament second seed Rafael Nadal in the men’s final on Monday, while the top seed and the No.1 ranked women’s player Serena Williams will square off against women’s world No.2 and tournament second seed Victoria Azarenka in the women’s decider tomorrow.

Prior to this year’s tournament, a large majority of the tennis media and fans were predicting these two particular match-ups in their respective finals, after two hard fought weeks of tennis action the world’s highest ranked men and women will now compete for the ultimate prize of being the 2013 US Open Champion in their respective categories, Williams has been on fire in this tournament and the American will start a well deserved favourite tomorrow against Azarenka, however the 24 year old Belarusian has won their last two meetings and Vika can certainly not be ruled out in this repeat of last year’s championship decider.

The eagerly awaited men’s final between Djokovic and Nadal should provide all the fans in Arthur Ashe stadium plenty of excitement, tension and drama in what could end up being a classic five-setter, Nole will hold onto his No.1 ranking regardless of the result but a Rafa victory will see the champion Spaniard close in on a successful return to the top of the men’s game, Nadal is yet to lose on hard courts this season but Djokovic usually plays his best tennis when he is under real threat from his opposition, it has all the hallmarks of being a great match, let’s hope the weather doesn’t spoil the show.

So we are down to two women and two men left standing at the US Open of 2013, who is your pick tennis fans and why? Will the two respective world No.1′s confirm their status by winning their respective titles in Flushing Meadows, or will the respective world No.2′s show that they deserve the top accolade more?

We will know the answers to these questions over the final two days of competition in New York, can’t wait! :)
