The final major of tennis' four Grand Slam tournaments in 2012 is just around the corner.

The U.S. Open will start this coming Monday, August 27 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, NY, and the world's elite players will be present for their shot at a piece of history.

There are a lot of burning questions and storylines ahead of the start of the year's final major:

Roger Federer's amazing run to reach the pinnacle of the tennis world yet again and his quest for an 18th Grand Slam title.

Last year it was all about Novak Djokovic. The year he's had, compared to his achievements last year, could be considered disappointing. But that is because of how high he set the bar last season.

A win on September 9 will erase any sour memories he might have from this year.

Andy Murray seems to finally have had a breakthrough while dominating Roger Federer for the first time in a final at the Olympics. Will this be the tournament that finally gives him that elusive first Grand Slam title?

Can anyone stop Serena Williams? All signs point to Williams as the only one capable of achieving such a feat.

Maria SharePoint, Victoria Azarenka, Agnieszka Radwanska, Petra Kvitova and even Samantha Stosur, who conquered her last year, look helpless in preventing Williams from winning her fourth U.S. Open crown.

Those are just some of the interesting questions and storylines surrounding this year's edition.

Let's take a look at some comprehensive information that will serve as your definitive guide for entire 2012 U.S. Open tennis tournament.
