In advance of the presale, we’re unveiling our Top 3, in no particular order, of the most memorable moments from last year's US Open:

1) All-time greats claim the titles: Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams barely broke a sweat in reaching the finals of the US Open, but struggled mightily before prevailing in epic championship matches. The Spaniard won his second US Open singles title by defeating world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in a thrilling four-set match, while Williams prevailed in a classic match against No. 2 seed Victoria Azarenka, overcoming her nerves and the determined play of her opponent to grab her fifth US Open title.

2) Victoria Duval upsets Samantha Stosur: What appeared to be a mismatch on paper ended up being the biggest upset of the tournament. The 17-year-old ranked No. 296 showed poise well beyond her years, attacking the backhand of the 2011 US Open champion and holding her nerve in key moments. But after cracking a forehand winner to take the match, 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, she acted her age as she jubilantly jumped up and down in celebration.

3) James Blake retires: One of the most successful players in the modern history of American tennis, the Connecticut native was known as much for his lethal forehand as his likeable off-court demeanor. But after reaching a career high of No. 4 in 2006, injuries began to take their toll and he made the US Open his swansong event. In typical Blake fashion, he put on another Open classic under the lights, narrowly losing in a fifth set tiebreak to Ivo Karlovic of Croatia before leaving Louis Armstrong Stadium to a standing ovation.
