The U.S. Open is a lot like any other Grand Slam—except that it's better.

As with any Slam, you have favorites, underdogs, upset alerts and sentimental heroes. You have brackets to fill, DVRs to set and articles to read (hopefully on Bleacher Report) so you can sound smart around the water cooler.

And if you're one of the lucky thousand fans who gets to witness the action in person, you should be making signs, buying sunscreen and debating the merits of face paint (and hopefully deciding you'll wear it, because that's what real fans do).
