U.S. Open Tennis Championships
The 2014 U.S. Open was certainly memorable with two men making their debut in the finals and Serena winning the women's championship in dominant fashion. History was made at the US Open as Marin Cilic was crowned champion over Kei Nishikori of Japan. For Serena Williams it was her fifth US Open title and third in a row. While it's true it's hard to wait until Sept. 2015 to see the action again, but it will be worth it if it resembles the quality of players from this year.
