History could be made in Flushing, New York this week. With a win at the US Open, Novak Djokovic would become the first player since Steffi Graf in 1988 and the first man since Rod Laver in 1969 to win the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open in the same calendar year. A win would also move Djokovic ahead of rivals Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for career Grand Slam titles. The three are sitting at 20 apiece, and Federer and Nadal are skipping the tournament due to injury. Djokovic is the favorite in the tournament, with Daniil Medvedev, Alexander Zverev and Stefanos Tsitsipas looming as his biggest obstacles against claiming his 21st Grand Slam title.
On the women’s side, favorites include Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep, Bianca Andreescu, Aryna Sabalenka and Iga Swiatek. Tennis fans will be excited to see two-time US Open champion Naomi Osaka back on the court after she withdrew from the French Open and skipped Wimbledon, citing mental health issues. Noticeably absent from the field is 23-time Grand Slam winner Serena Williams, who withdrew from the tournament with a leg injury.
The US Open began on Monday, Aug. 30. The women’s final is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, with the men’s final to follow on Sunday, Sept. 12. Here’s everything you need to know to watch all the tennis live without a cable subscription.
