- The places should be swift this year (this is determined in a standardized way in a so-called Court Pace Index (CPI)).
- A few weeks ago, the Arthur Ashe Stadium was still a temporary hospital due to Corona for serving food.
- The players live shielded in the Long Island Mariott Hotel (3 stars, 599 rooms) and have to be tested. Anyone who lives in private villas must have this approved and accept security for surveillance.
- Excursions, visits to restaurants, etc. are prohibited, only hotel, training and games are allowed.
Like every year, you play in the east of New York in the huge borough of Queens near LaGuardia Airport in the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The equally gigantic stadiums are particularly noticeable due to the predominant color dark blue and very high, steep stands.

Otherwise, Eurosport 360HD and Sky (tennis promotion) offer additional HD option channels for those who like it, particularly high-definition – on TV and live stream.
Attention: due to the postponement of the Tour de France 2020 Live Streaming, there will be cycling races before tennis at Eurosport 1. The US Open starts around 5:30 pm.
Favorite Players in US Open 2020
It isn’t easy to assess this year. The pre-tournaments, like in Cincinnati, are of little help.
Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem are the top-seeded players.
Daniil Medvedev and Alexander Zverev are among the expanded favorites.
For women, more players are missing from the top 5 of the tennis world rankings.
Serena Williams is likely to find the situation best to win another Grand Slam.
Otherwise, Naomi Osaka and Petra Kvitova are probably among the favorites.
