When is the US Open?

The US Open is traditionally held in late summer to early autumn, with the 2023 tournament set to get under way on Monday 28th August before concluding on Sunday 10th September.

Where is the US Open held?

The US Open has been contested on the hard courts of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows, New York since 1978.

Prior to that, the tournament was held on grass, primarily at the West Side Tennis Club between 1881 and 1974, while it remained at the venue from 1975 to 1977, although during this period it was contested on clay.

Jimmy Connors is the only individual to have won the US Open on all three surfaces, triumphing on grass in 1974 and clay two years later, before clinching his final three titles in New York on the hard courts in 1978, 1982 and 1983.

Can I watch the US Open?

The US Open is available to watch in the UK on Amazon Prime, who secured a five-year exclusive deal for live telecast rights in 2018.

However, viewers who do not have an Amazon subscription needn't worry, as bet365's Sports Live Streaming platform will also be showing the action.

How many times has the US Open taken place?

The US Open has been contested on 142 occasions, with the men's singles and doubles having been held every year since the tournament's inception in 1881.

The women's singles was first held six years later in 1887, as was the mixed doubles, while the women's doubles was the last to be established, as it was contested for the first time in 1889.

Richard Sears was the first winner of the men's singles and he would go on to triumph for seven years in a row, while the maiden female champion was Ellen Hansell.

Who has won the US open on the most occasions?

American trio Bill Tilden, William Larned and Richard Sears all won the men's singles at the US Open seven times during the amateur era.

That tally is yet to be matched during the Open era, but three men have claimed glory on five occasions during that time - Pete Sampras, Jimmy Connors and Roger Federer.

Norwegian born Molla Bjurstedt Mallory leads the way when it comes to women's singles titles, with all eight of her successes coming in the amateur era.

Chris Evert and Serena Williams are the most decorated women of the Open era, with the American duo winning six titles apiece.

Who are the favourites for the US Open?

There remains uncertainty as to whether Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic will compete at the 2023 staging of the US Open, but the Serb, a three-time champion at Flushing Meadows, is 11/8 to win the men's singles in 2023 if he does make his first appearance at the competition in two years.

2021 winner Daniil Medvedev is 11/4 to claim the crown for a second time whilst defending champion Carlos Alcaraz, who prevailed over Casper Rudd in 2022, is available at 7/2. 

Reigning champion Iga Swiatek is the frontrunner to land the women's singles title for a second time at 9/4, with Caroline Garcia at 8/1 and Simona Halep 9/1. 

Emma Raducanu, who shocked the sporting world to land Grand Slam glory at Flushing Meadows in 2021, is 25/1 to go all the way for a second time.
