The 2014 U.S. Open Series starts its first of three big stops with the Rogers Cup in Canada. This year the ATP will play in Toronto and the WTA will perform at Montreal. Best of all, many top stars will be gunning to peak for the U.S. Open, the last Grand Slam event of the year.
We are going to rank the 10 most interesting players to watch during this week. The top stars are the biggest draw, and there are differences in their quests to win titles. There is especial interest in some of the younger players trying to move up in men's and women's tennis.
Unfortunately, our list will not include absentees Rafael Nadal, Li Na and Simona Halep. We also left off Serena Williams, who is always a favorite but was able to win a title last week and assuage some concerns about defending her U.S. Open title.
