Here we look at the 5 big records that can be achieved in the year’s fourth Grand Slam

Novak Djokovic- Calendar Grand Slam

The World No.1 Tennis player Novak Djokovic is expected to continue his dominant run in the Grand Slams. He has already won the Australian Open, French Open, and Wimbledon. Now, he will be looking to the ultimate glory. However, he needs to recover from his poor show at the Tokyo Olympics. As many as 5 players have won calendar grand slams. They are Steffi Graf- 1988, Margaret Court- 1970, Rod Laver- 1962 & 1969, Maureen Connolly-1953, Maureen Connolly- 1953. As mentioned, no player has won the calendar grand slam in the 21st century.

Serena Williams

Tennis legend Serena Williams is just a single Grand Slam away from equalling Margaret Court who has won as many as 24 grand slams. She has entered as many as 4 finals since 2018. It will be interesting to see if she can recover from her injury and go on to win the elusive title. The legendary tennis player has failed to impress in the last few Grand Slam outings.

The 39-year-old can also win her 7th US Open, joint highest with Richard Sears, Mate Pavic, and Bruno Soares.

Title defence

Title defence has become a big topic of discussion in the last few Grand Slams. None of the women’s players in singles are able to win the title once again. Serena Williams had last defended her 2016 Wimbledon title. Since then, no women’s player is able to win the title once again. Since the 2015 US Open, we have had 15 first-time champions, including Ash Barty (Wimbledon), Barbora Krejcikova (Roland Garros) and Naomi Osaka (Australian Open) in 2021.

US Open Defending Champions:
