US Open 2023 in high energy consumption. Great balance, different moods, a lot of competitive badness, good plays but also technical errors in the interpretation of the match. Very tough.

Strong and interesting athletes greet the last Grand Slam of 2023 with surprises, but also game demerits. Great performances and tests of character from all of them. Among women and men, several continue their negative trend, some are not part of the circuit, others are really strong and talented.

Stopping is not contemplated, therefore after years in the virtual tennis circuit it is impossible to stop.

Taking a polite look at the Women, today Sunday 3 September given the succession of rounds, from Poland Iga Swiatek returned as TI, dominating the matches played in Terminator mode. Will she make it to the Final?

Continuing the analysis, the revelation of the USOpen is an old acquaintance for those who follow tennis, abandoned years ago shortly before getting married (but only betrayal allows a man to abandon his partner before a big event and vice versa for women) but, now happily married and above all very happy to be back at very, very interesting levels: Caroline Wozniacki. In the United States of America she is demonstrating to stay and not just playing to appear.

Americans are very hot in New York: Jessica Pegula, Coco Gauff, Madison Keys and an unexpected Peyton Stearns.

The last women without the flag will face each other during the day. Will Aryna Sabalenka manage to reach the final without drama starting from Kasatkina?

Europe (Vondrousova, Muchova, Bencic, Cirstea, Ostapenko), Africa (Jabeur) and China (Wang / Zheng) complete the lot of terrible women in tennis.

Women will all be able to take on the challenge with competitive determination and power.

Men will have to submit to the will of the last remaining record holder. His statement to stop them is clear: from Serbia Novak Djokovic. How much energy will he keep until the possible final?

El nuevo Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz must start a campaign against the Italian players. If the prediction is confirmed, Jannik Sinner vs Carlos Alcaraz match could lead one of the two to the bottom or almost. I forgot Aleksandr Zverev in the tennis fight before the prediction.

Daniil Medvedev, Andrey Rublev, Taylor Fritz, the unpredictable Australians Hijikata / de Minaur and Americans Tiafoe / Paul / Shelton could spice things up a lot.

A special mention to the effectiveness expressed by Matteo Arnaldi, really very well and a greeting with a speedy recovery (see you in AO 2024) to the unfortunate Matteo Berrettini who is once again injured. Life is life.

In few hours new challenges in New York, Flushing Meadows. Then: Ready, Play.
