The draw is out. The players have arrived. The fun is about to begin.
On Monday, the most talented male and female tennis players in the world will square off in Flushing Meadows to see who will be named the 2014 U.S. Open champion.
The men's defending champion will be missed, as Rafael Nadal had to withdraw from the event with a wrist injury. However, No. 1 Novak Djokovic and five-time champion Roger Federer are still vying for the title as 126 other players try and stop them.
In the women's field, Serena Williams will be trying to win her third U.S. Open trophy in a row and her first major of 2014, as a packed field of competitors including Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova will try and score the upset.
