Out of the recent years, the 2016 US Open has injury concerns both in the field and at the top of the mountain. Great to see everyone back here at HRWager. Flushing Meadows main draw action is set to start this Monday. Draws are out but the established powers in both the ATP and WTA are in more than a little jeopardy. Let us see whom is under the weather. What players can rise up to take advantage of the vacuum up top? All of this for you right now here at HRWager.
2016 US Open : Shoulder for #1
Shoulder problem for Serena. Significant setback after Wimbledon saw her greatly limit her action before RIO and we were witness to the results after that. If this takes any power off of her serve then she is in deep trouble at the fourth Grand Slam. Without easy points, there are enough counter punchers in the draw to plague her. Look for an exit near the semis if her serve slows up at all.
Part physical and the rest mental has accounted for Novak’s slide in and after Wimbledon. Against Querrey, he just could not muster the mental energy necessary to do the deed. Now with a left wrist injury, he could be worn down. However, the gulf between him and anyone else not named Andy Murray is huge. Surface is slow enough that he will not just be served off of it as he was at the All England Club. Look for Andy Murray to continue his resurgence with another slam title here.
Even with Andy riding high, most of the other top men and women are much closer to the pack this year. For those that crave underdog ML wagers, this is the slam for you. After one round, we can tell what the surface is like and how high the ball bounces this year. Vital information to look for a style and physical height to embrace for the 2016 US Open. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at HRWager.
