How to Watch the 2021 US Open Tennis Live

US Open Tennis Live

The final Grand Slam on the Tennis circuit, The US Open 2021, takes place at Flushing Meadows in New York. The likes of Ashleigh Barty, Novak Djokovic and Alex de Minaur will all be heading to the States to put their name in the history books and finish the Grand Slam season in style. With so much to play for, you’ll want to know how you can watch all the action live or later on-demand. Find that all out and more right here.

2021 US Open Tennis Preview

The US Open is the fourth and final major on the tennis calendar, and the 2021 edition will prove to be must-see TV. Played outdoors at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York, the tournament offers over $57.5 million USD in prize money. A number of Aussie’s are in the hunt on both sides of the draw, looking to emulate the deeds of Lleyton Hewitt (2001) and Sam Stosur (2011), who are the only two Australian’s to have won the event this century.

Women’s world number Ashleigh Barty will be hoping to do us proud by going all the way, but the venue has proved difficult for her in the past. She will be helped by the fact that the Williams sisters will not take part in the tournament due to injuries.

The men’s draw will be missing other big names in the shape of Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer. The Spaniard has pulled out due to Coronavirus concerns whilst Federer has a knee injury. This leaves the likes of Danil Medvedev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and our very own Ales de Minaur in with a real shot at going all the way to the Final.

US Open Favourites

There are several players to look out for during the 2021 US Open in both the men’s and women’s games. Check out some of the top seeds for the US Open draw here.

US Open Tennis 2021

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has been rapidly adding to his trophy cabinet over the past decade, and is now the holder of a huge 20 men’s Grand Slam titles, putting him on par with Nadal and Federer as the games greatest players. He has won three times at the US Open, and his consistency at Flushing Meadows has been incredible. If he wins here this year he will become the most successful men’s player ever seen in the game, and the fact that Rafa and Roger will be absent will make the job a lot easier.

Ashleigh Barty

Australia’s very own Ashleigh Barty is currently sitting at the top of the women’s rankings. She has won two Grand Slams so far in her career at both the French Open (2019) and Wimbledon (2021). She is the in-form player going into this tournament and will be the favourite to go all the way. She has endured difficult runs previously at the New York venue and will be hoping for a lot better than her current fourth-round best finish

Danil Medvedev

Danil Medvedev is the young pretender to the thrown which Djokovic, Nadal and Federer have shared for so long. He is currently ranked number two on the men’s tour and loves the hardcourt. He has reached Grand Slam finals at the US Open (2019) and the Australian Open (2021) and it’s only a matter of time before he takes his first title. This year is as good a chance as he has had yet, and a strong performance should see him make the Final.

Aryna Sabalenka

Young Belorussian, Anya Sabalenka has made big strides in 2021. She currently sits second in the women’s world rankings and reached the semi-finals at Wimbledon, the most recent Grand Slam this year. She has also tasted plenty of doubles success, winning both the US Open (2019) and Australian Open (2021), so she is used to the biggest stages. Can she go all the way this year now that Serena Williams is out injured and Naomi Osaka is still a doubt for the tournament?
