US Open 2015: Quick Hits – A Look at the Final Fours

Two Great Final Fours:

This is Not the 1993 US Open Semifinal*

The Men’s Final Four is Ideal from My Point of View:

  • Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, and Marin Cilic are the Reigning Champions at All 4 Majors
  • Novak Djokovic is a Clear World #1
  • Roger Federer is #2 in the World and the All-Time Major Record Holder
  • The Final Will Feature Players with at Least One Major Title Each
  • The Final Will Feature a Player with a Two-Handed Backhand and a Player with a One-Handed Backhand
  • Stan Wawrinka Could Cement his Hall of Fame Status while Marin Cilic Could Begin to Make a Hall of Fame Case with a 2015 US Open Title.

Will Italy Prevent This?

The Women’s Final Four is Pretty Ideal as Well:

  • Serena is the Reigning Champion at All Four Majors
  • Serena is 4 Sets away from a Grand Slam
  • Simona Halep is 4 Sets away from Being a Clear Challenger to Serena and Spoiler of History in the Making
  • Roberta Vinci has a lot of Variety and Personality
  • Flavia Pennetta is a Player who Gives Candid Views
  • These are Great Qualities for Two Underdogs
  • The Odds of #1 vs. #2 with History on the Line Look Good

* In 1993, the Men’s Semifinalists were “Pistol” Pete Sampras, “The Talented Tank Aritst” Alexander Volkov, Cedric “I had an Underrated Career” Pioline, and Wally “How did I get here?” Masur.  The 1993 Women’s Semifinalists were better featuring Steffi Graf, Manuela Maleeva, Helena Sukova, and Aranxta Sanchez-Vicario.
