The U.S. Open, tennis's final major of the season, finally gets underway Monday from Flushing Meadow, N.Y., with gold medalist Andy Murray and world No. 1 Roger Federer highlighting the first day's schedule of play.
Florida locals Mardy Fish and Robby Ginepri are also in action from the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. Fish, ranked 23rd in the tournament, will open play against Japan's Go Soeda on Louis Armstrong Court. Fish's match will be the third on the court for the day, so Fish will likely see his first action in mid-afternoon.
Ginepri hits Court 4 to take on Spain's Albert Ramos. Both players are unranked in the tournament's draw.
Of course, much of the attention on the women's side of the draw will be on Serena Williams, the London gold medalist, who comes into the grand slam event with as much momentum on her side as any of the combatants on the women's draw. No. 3 Maria Sharapova will play in the afternoon from Arthur Ashe court.
Coverage will be available on the Tennis Channel, ESPN2 and U.S. Open Live all day.
