With the summer season still fully in the air, the ebbing thoughts of fall and the restart of a new school year are slowly beginning to creep into the minds of people nationwide, and along with those ideas are the visions of wonderful vacations that must be experienced in these hot months.  A great way to cap off this year’s summer is with a trip to the 2013 US Open over Labor Day, marking a great finality to another pleasant summer!

The US Open is the premier American tennis event and one of the four Grand Slam tournaments that offers star tennis players the highest of praise and the most alluring of prize money.  With three of the Grand Slam events already in the books that delighted tennis fans with impressive matches and battles, surely there will be more fun in store this Labor Day Weekend.

Last year at the US Open, Andy Murray claimed his first ever Grand Slam victory in the Men’s Singles tournament while Serena Williams added to her own trophy cabinet with a fine display to win the Women’s Singles tournament.

This year could feature another exciting battle between Murray and Novak Djokovic, who look more and more like the top two competitors in Men’s tennis every match, while Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer will surely be looking to bounce back from poor 2013 Wimbledon displays and rekindle some of their former magic.

Likewise, Serena Williams, Maria Sharapova, and Victoria Azarenka will all be looking to add another title following their own defeats at Wimbledon.  Providing an opportunity at redemption for these players and a sparkling Labor Day trip idea, the 2013 US Open figures to be a joy to watch!
