Serena is on a 17 match winning streak since the French Open after claiming the Wimbledon and Olympic titles as well as the WTA Stanford crown at the start of July. And it's not just the titles she's won, it's the manner in which she's done it. She blasted through the Olympic field, defeating Vera Zvonareva, Caroline Wozniacki, Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova while dropping just a handful of games.

She's 11/8 with Ladbrokes to win the US Open and add to the three titles she's already won at Flushing Meadows in 1999, 2002 and 2008.

Serena is chasing history over the next few years as she bids to challenge the number of Grand Slam titles won by the likes of Steffi Graf and Margaret Court. However she's often fallen short at the US Open over the past few years, losing to Australia's Sam Stosur in the final last year and the others in the field will be aware that Serena's not quite as dominant on the hard courts.

Victoria Azarenka will be looking to add to her Australian Open title and she's 11/2 with BetVictor while Maria Sharapova is 7/1 with BetVictor
