A 2014 title would tie Serena Williams with Christ Evert for the most US Open women's singles crowns in the Open era, with six.
A repeat men's singles title for Rafael Nadal in 2014 would earn him a US Open record $3 million in prize money.

In advance of the presale, we’re unveiling our Top 3 picks, in no particular order, of some of the most dominant US Open players of the modern era.

1) Roger Federer: The Swiss legend is just one of three players in the Open era to have won the US Open five times (Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras) and is the only player to have won it for five consecutive years, from 2004 to 2008. It’s impossible to not include him each year as a potential favorite to win the tournament.

2) Serena Williams: Although Serena is prone to occasional early round losses at other Grand Slams, she always brings her “A” game to New York. The five-time US Open champion has reached the quarterfinals or better in her last six appearances and it always takes someone playing the match of her life to dethrone the world No. 1.

3) Rafael Nadal: Although Nadal is perhaps best known as a clay-court master, he’s shown off plenty of hard-court skills at the US Open. The Spaniard admits to struggling in New York at the beginning of his career, but the high-energy atmosphere has ultimately complimented his personality. The two-time US Open champion has reached at least the semifinals in his last five appearances in New York.
