The final Grand Slam event opened Monday in Flushing, New York. The tournament is formally known as the U.S. Open.
Some in New York have begun calling it Roger Federer's American Paradise. They can make such an ironic yet bold statement because Federer is tied with Pete Sampras for the most U.S. Open victories, with five over the course of his career.
The recently turned 31-year-old Federer is seeded No.1 as he enters this year's tournament in New York, giving him a wonderful chance to become the first man to win the most prestigious U.S. tournament six times.
Needless to say, Federer has had plenty of memorable shining moments at Flushing Meadows. Will any moment in 2012 top his current top 10? Maybe, maybe not.
