"The Grass is Always Greener"

The best tennis players in the world are currently gathered in Flushing-Meadows, NY for the fourth and final major of the 2011 tennis tournament schedule. Action at the U.S. Open has been great so far, minus the weather delays, and all of the sport's biggest names are still competing for a major singles title.

This is an exciting time for tennis fans everywhere. For the first time in a while the sport has multiple superstars that are capable or winning several majors. Before Rafael Nadal starting contending for majors there was pretty much one name when it came to tennis (Roger Federer). For the last few years we have seen these two battle in legendary matches for major titles. At this point we are looking at 4 men that have a legitimate shot to win any tournament. Federer, Andy Murray, Nadal, and Novak Djokovic are 4 guys that can beat anyone and they all carry the popularity of tennis on their shoulders. Sports fans love rivalries and tennis has an opportunity to offer a few different combinations of great rivalries. Just think back to the 2008 Wimbledon Championships...
