What an exciting 2011 US Open thus far. We've seen some unbelievable tennis.
Of course, there's the tremendous run that Serena Williams is on, favored to win it all. There's the great wins as players have come back from the brink of defeat, such as Donald Young and Caroline Wozniacki. While at the the same time, there's been some devastating losses as some of the best have had an early exit, like Mardy Fish and Maria Sharapova.
And we've seen the new faces of tennis as we've watched Sloane Stephens, Madison Keyes, Christina McHale and Heather Watson light up the court with skill and wisdom well beyond their ages.
One day, some of these tennis players are bound to enter into the record books. And when they do, they will join the likes of the best to have ever played the game.
In this slideshow, we'll take a look at some of the greatest US Open records. And for those who follow my work, once again players from both the pre-Open Era as well as the Open Era will be included.
Take a moment and enjoy a look at highlights from the rich history established by the players who have and continue to grace the courts of Flushing Meadows for the US Open.
