Roger Federer is back on top of tennis at the age of thirty. His recent Wimbledon victory over Andy Murray of Great Britain meant securing the No.1 ranking and recording his seventeenth major title. American tennis fans are able to see the big four in action: Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Andy Murray. The top American men and women will also be out in full force with John Isner and Serena Williams leading the charge. Like King Roger, Serena won her fifth Wimbledon title and fourteenth overall major title at the age of thirty as well. We are seeing that the veteran players on tour still have a lot of great tennis in them and will be pleasing tennis fans for years to come.
The top tennis players in the world will be traveling back to the All England Club, where Wimbledon is hosted, to play in the Olympics. For the premier players, this is an extremely fast turn around from the French Open, to Wimbledon, proceeded by the Olympics, and finally to to the 2012 US Open.
The US Open is the final major of the year and the first rounds start on August 27. It will be especially interesting to see which of the top players will be fresh enough and motivated enough to capture the title, after the addition of the Olympics into an already loaded schedule. Tennis aficionados will be eager to see other elite players like Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, and Caroline Wozniaki finally break through and capture that elusive grand slam title.
Here is a look at current US Open Tennis ticket price trends and how prices changed as the tournament approached last year.
