With top ranked player Serena Williams withdrawing from the US Open, the field is wide open. Caroline Wozniacki is the top seed. She reached the finals in the 2009 US Open, and has reached at least the quarterfinals in each Grand Slam so far this year. She'll be challenged by defending champ Kim Clijsters, who is seeded second. Clijsters came out of retirement only a few weeks before the 2009 US Open, but still managed to win in impressive fashion. She also won the US Open in 2005. Check daily on our 2010 Womens US Open odds.
The top seeds will have challenges. Venus Williams is ranked third, but hasn't won a Grand Slam outside of Wimbledon since 2001. Forth seeded Jelena Jankovic has performed well in Grand Slam events this year, but has never won one. Rising star Li Na and former Grand Slam winners Maria Sharapova and Svetlana Kuznetsova are fully capable of pulling surprises to win the tournament.
The potential quarterfinal matches could provide some interesting match-ups. Wozniacki could face Li Na in the quarters if she can survive a potential fourth round match with Sharapova. Venus Williams has a pretty favorable draw compared to Wozniacki, but she could have a potential semifinal match with Clijsters. The hard surface at Flushing Meadows favors Clijsters and her game. Clijsters has a powerful serve and a lot of Grand Slam experience. That could give her the edge in a potential showdown with Wozniacki. The absence of Serena shouldn't hinder the anticipation of the women's draw. There are a lot of solid players and former champions who could add to their legacy with a win at the US Open.
