Now that Labor Day has passed and most of the field—men's and women's—has been eliminated. it's time to get real.
On the women's side, only one top-eight seed remains (Serena Williams), while the men's side is still loaded with the game's top stars (with the exception of David Ferrer).
Going forward, there are some serious questions worth asking about the remaining seeds. Is Williams ready to win her 18th Grand Slam? Can Victoria Azarenka snap her losing streak against Williams? And will the winner of the men's tournament come out of the top quarterfinal?
Those questions and more as we enter the final week of the U.S. Open.
