The U.S. Open is starting to heat up in New York. There are some big matches to look forward to on Saturday. Here are the top matches to watch and where to find them.
Roger Federer (1) vs Fernando Vedasco (25)
Roger Federer has been very solid thus far in the U.S. Open. He'll be looking to continue that performance against Fernando Vedasco, who has as good of a chance as almost anyone to unseat Federer as the tournament favorite.
Andy Murray (3) vs. Feliciano Lopez (30)
Andy Murray is riding high after winning Olympic gold. He has to be considered the main challenger to Federer in the tournament.
To get to Federer, though, Murray will have to get through Feliciano Lopez, whom Murray has dominated in the past. Expect Murray to continue this dominance to advance in the Open.
Jelena Jankovic (30) vs. Agnieszka Radwanska (2)
Agnieszka Radwanska is a legitimate star, but she will have a tough task against former world No. 1 Jelena Jankovic.
Radwanska hasn't been dominant, but she's been good enough to continue to advance. She has also defeated Jankovic in both of their past two matches, so Radwanska should be considered the favorite.
Ekaterina Makarova vs. Serena Williams (4)
Serena Williams, like Andy Murray, is still riding the momentum of Olympic gold. Her play was truly legendary and is reflected in her play throughout the year.
Williams has earned the right to be considered the favorite in the U.S. Open, and defeating Makarova, who beat Williams in their last match, would help her continue her dominance. Expect Serena to assert her dominance in a big victory.
