2011 US Open Preview & Predictions

It's the final Grand Slam event of the year, the US Open. Under the bright lights of New York, tennis' biggest stars will take center stage as they try to end their season with a championship at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Who do I think will win for the men and women?
Men
Once again, I do not think that there will be an American winning this tournament. It looks like it will be one of the top three again of Novak Djokovic, Rafeal Nadal, and Roger Federer. But for me there is one man that stands out as who I would think would be the 2011 US Open champion. I think Djokovic's shoulder injury will prevent him from winning and Federer seems to be on the downside of his career right now. I think Nadal will win his second US Open title.
Pick: Rafael Nadal


Women
The female fields always seem to be wide open but for me, there is only one person that comes to mind as who I think will win. Serena Williams will only be the 29th seed in Flushing plus people are backing away from her after dropping out of the Cincinnati Open. But she was dominant in winning the Stanford Open and the Roger's Cup and I personally do not see anyone else in the field taking her down.
Pick: Serena Williams
