(PRWEB UK) 20 August 2014
With the final hurdle to seal the Grand Slam series of 2014 initiating from the 25th of August, all players listed for the tournament are being observed in their final stages of preparation for one of the most sought after fixtures in international tennis.
TravelhouseUK is engaged in supporting air travel deals to New York, the destination which regularly hosts the US Open at the famed Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The event’s support is lined by major stakeholders from the travel sector, notably the American Westin hotels and resorts group, as well as Emirates for air travel itinerary options.
The Billie Jean King Center will host its most crucial final matches for men’s, women’s, mixed doubles as well as men’s and women’s singles at the Arthur Ashe Stadium between 5th and 8th of September. Other important stadiums will include the Louis Armstrong Stadium, Grandstands, and multiple courts within the center. Attendants have the options to book the Prom, Log, and Courtside as well as grounds passes within the center, while for viewing they can choose from being on the sides, the corners, or behind the server. Live feeds via the internet as well as active following services will be provided for tennis fans worldwide.
Most of the matches are scheduled to occur either near noon (11 AM) or evening (7 PM). Among the top hopefuls for clinching the titles are previous two-time in a row champion Serena Williams, who has expressed her confidence for her progress during the qualifying stages. She is also highlighted to defend her title on her home turf. Second contender to follow up for the Women’s championship for singles is Maria Sharapova, who only confronts Serena posed as a real threat to become the contender for the final win. The women’s side of the championship has enough vacuum left for new challengers after World No 2 Li Na pulled out from registering for the US Open due to a knee injury.
For the men’s singles category, Rafael Nadal is in rigorous efforts to retain his ability for defending his title after he had a recent wrist injury during practice sessions. This is not his first attempt to make it back to the courts for a major tournament while suffering from an injury. Novak Djokovic features as another favorite for this year’s US Open, as 2014 has been a fantastic year for him considering the high winning ratio he has maintained until now. Djokovic also has been the runner up for multiple US Open appearances in the past. Roger Federer is undergoing the phase of gracefully aging within his active tennis career, maintaining his position within the top seeds of the sport. Scotland’s Andy Murray is listed to be the top challenger; he has fumbled with his strategy, and has mostly remained off-season considering his dampened statistics for his performance over the ongoing year. He has appointed noted Frenchwoman tennis champion Amelie Mauresmo as his new coach to start afresh for a win.
