US Open tennis 2010 results have been conventional thus far. But the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has a star-studded final weekend, with the US Open tennis brackets having the top three seeds left on both sides. Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer and Novac Djokovic have all held form, along with Carolina Wozniacki, Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams. Tomorrow, the male top three will square off, with only two left for the first match on Sunday. Yet the US Open tennis 2010 schedule is controlled by the women today, as their top players try to make Saturday night’s finale.
Just like in the men’s bracket, the women’s side has the 2-3 seeds meeting in one semifinal, with the No. 1 facing a long shot. In this case, Caroline Wozniacki is trying to avoid being upset by Vera Zvonareva, while Kim Clijsters and Venus Williams will battle in the second semi.
Of course, the US Open tennis 2010 main event tonight has a Clijsters vs Williams semifinal for the second-straight year. This time, Venus is trying to do what Serena didn’t, and knock Clijsters off of her Flushing Meadows throne.
The last two times Clijsters has played at Flushing Meadows, she won it all, in 2005 and 2009. Her quest for an unconventional three peat has gone smoothly, as the US Open tennis 2010 schedule has not challenged her. However, neither Clijsters nor Williams have lost a set yet, so something will give today.
Both Clijsters and Williams have won here before, although Venus hasn’t done it since 2001. Yet for Caroline Wozniacki, the US Open tennis 2010 results could take her to the next level, as she seeks her first Grand Slam. She too has not lost a set yet, although the stakes are much higher now.
Last year, she lost to Clijsters in the finals, and has come up short late in the last several Grand Slams. If she changes that this weekend, she can finally join the elite and officially become the world’s No. 1. But Wozniacki cannot look ahead to a potential final with Clijsters or Williams, as she needs to beat Wimbledon finalist Zvonareva first.
While the women determine their finalists this afternoon, the US Open tennis 2010 schedule is giving the men a break. The men’s 2-3 semifinal showdown has Roger Federer against Novac Djokovic, while top seed Rafael Nadal’s underdog opponent is Mikhail Youzhny. If form holds again, the first Federer-Nadal Grand Slam final since early 2009 will close things out at Flushing Meadows.
However, the US Open tennis 2010 results have not left the women lacking in big showdowns. The semifinalists will prove that today, as Wozniacki and Zvonareva go first, followed by Clijsters and Williams later this afternoon.
