Grand Slam Summer



The 2013 US Open is the final Grand Slam tournament of the year, to be held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (NTC) in Flushing Meadows- Corona Park. Novak Djokovic has been named the top seed with Rafael Nadal seeded second and defending champion Andy Murray third. Number-one ranked women’s player in the world, Serena Williams, received the women’s top seed. Seeded second is Victoria Azarenka, who beat Williams in three sets last week. Maria Sharapova, who has won Wimbledon, the US Open, the Australian Open and last season, the French Open, is seeded third and 2012 Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska is the fourth seed. As one of the four Grand Slams, the US Open is one of the most prestigious tennis tournaments in the world. The whole world will be focused on this jewel in the crown of New York City from August 26 until September 9, with matches every day. That makes two world-class sporting events in two months, with the Major League Baseball All-Star Game hosted by the Mets in Citi Field this summer on July 16, the first time since 1964, the Mets’ inaugural year. The world is watching Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, in the heart of Queens.—Annette Hanze Alberts
