When Novak Djokovic lifted his record eighth Australian Open trophy and 17th grand slam title overall on 2 February this year, the sports world was still cruising along as usual and an exciting year of tennis loomed. Just over a month later, COVID-19 had wreaked havoc on global sports, even for a naturally social-distancing sport like tennis.

Tournaments scheduled from March through July were cancelled, including Wimbledon, which wasn’t held for the first time since World War II. Yet the US Open confirmed in June it was going ahead as scheduled. It will be held without fans and with reduced prize money. It will also be missing a number of the world’s top players.

When is the US Open?

The 2020 US Open is running from 31 August to 13 September. Held at the Billie Jean Tennis Center in Flushing, New York, Arthur Ashe Stadium will again be the venue for the finals.

How to watch or live stream the US Open

The rights to broadcast the US Open in Germany through 2022 are held by Eurosport. You have a great number of options when it comes to accessing Eurosport channels, including a range of satellite and cable companies, such as Kable Deutschland and HD+ in Germany.

You can also subscribe directly to the Eurosport Player. It has monthly, annual and day passes, plus tailored season and event passes.

Another option is through DAZN, one of the newer sports streaming options on the market. In Germany, a DAZN subscription comes with both Eurosport 1 and Eurosport 2 channels. Both channels are showing hours of live tennis from New York, along with plenty of other sports content, including this year’s Tour de France.

When are the men’s and women’s US Open finals?

The men’s US Open final will take place on Sunday, September 13 starting at 4pm EDT. The women’s US Open final is the day prior, Saturday, September 12, also from 4pm EDT.

Who is playing in this year’s tournament?

The better question here might be who’s not playing? While men’s world number one Novak Djokovic has opted to compete, along with Serena Williams, an eye-popping number of top players have withdrawn. Defending champion Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Stan Wawrinka, Gael Monfils and Nick Kyrgios are all skipping the event in New York.

Continuing his comeback from injury, Andy Murray will compete, alongside Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev, the latter coming off defeat to Nadal in last year’s US Open final.

On the women’s side, 6 of the world’s top 10 won’t be playing, including world number 1 Ash Barty, second-ranked Simona Halep and defending champion Bianca Andreescu.
