We’ll be looking at both the male and female players so keep reading if you’d like to find out more about this exciting tennis tournament.
When Is The Tournament?
This year’s US Open starts on 26th August with the final match taking place on 8th September. The Women’s Final will take place a day earlier than the Men’s Final on 7th September. While the finals might seem a long time away, the US Open usually seems to fly by as the world watches on to see who might win. The main matches will take place in the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadow in New York City. This stadium is very famous and is one of the largest public tennis facilities that tournaments take place in. We look forward to seeing the top players in the world on the courts in this location in 2019.
Who Won Last Year?
Last year, we saw many great players fail to make it to the final of the US Open 2018 tournament. In the end, Novak Djokovic managed to take home the crown as the champion of the Men’s Singles competition. In second place was Juan Martin del Potro who also put on a good fight during the competition.
In the Women’s Singles, Naomi Osaka managed to beat out popular player Serena Williams to take home the top spot in the tournament. Both of these players played very well but Osaka was the strongest in the end and was crowned the winner of the tournament. When looking at which players will shine in 2019 and who you should think about placing your bet on, it is a good idea to look at previous winners and their performance in the competition. You should also be assessing how they have done in other tournaments since last year’s US Open in order to figure out how their game is this year. Below, we’ll talk you through some of the contenders for the crowns in both competitions this year.
While Alexander Zverev has not been at the top in past tournaments, this player is starting to show his full potential and it appears that he has a good chance of coming out on top in the upcoming 2019 US Open in NYC. In the past, top player Rafael Nadal has called this player a “clear possible future No.1” which is quite the compliment. German player Zverev has so far played well in the Australian Open where he managed to be seeded fourth. With a few months to go until this competition begins, this is a player to look out for.
It would be impossible to talk about the US Open without making reference to former World No.1 Serena Williams. While this American player was defeated by Naomi Osaka in the final of last year’s tournament, she is sure to put on a good performance this year. Since then, Williams has climbed the rankings again to 11th position and is showing that she has what it takes to perform well after an absence from the game. Look out for Serena Williams in the upcoming Tennis Open.
Serbian player Novak Djokovic stands a very good chance of taking home the crown in the 2019 US Open after his impressive performance last year where he won the Men’s Singles. This player entered the Australian Open this year as the top seed and has gone on to perform very well. While he has seen some defeat in matches this year, we look forward to seeing what he has to offer in the 2019 tournament.
Another American female player that is hopeful to win the Women’s Singles in this year’s competition is Madison Keys who turned pro in 2009. This player was put out of the 2018 Open in the semi-finals but is planning on coming back fighting in the next big tournament. Currently sitting at no. 18 in the rankings, she has performed well in the Australian Open and looks to be putting on her game face for the 2019 US Open. Keep an eye on Keys as she might just be the winner of the Women’s Singles in this year’s competition.
Who Will Win?
The players that we have discussed in this article are all very impressive at what they do but it is important to remember that anything can happen in this game.
