There are 44 American players scheduled to compete in the 2015 Australian Open that started on January 19 and will go through February 1st.  Half of them are women.  We thought we would spotlight those women we feel might have a chance of having a good run at this, the first major tournament of the year and the first Grand Slam event.

The following are the leading American women competing whom we will be watching closely.  Let’s see how far they progress through the field.  Stay tuned next week for a follow up report!
