Welcome to watch US Open 2017 Live Stream Tennis Tournament which was started 22th August at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The United States Open Tennis Championships is a hard court tennis tournament. The tournament is the modern version of one of the oldest tennis championships in the world, the U.S. National Championship, for which men’s singles was first contested in 1881. Since 1987, the US Open has been chronologically the fourth and final tennis major comprising the Grand Slam each year; the other three, in chronological order, are the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon.
A host of notable players on both the men’s and women’s side will be absent from this year’s event. Novak Djokvic and Andy Murray are among the men’s players who are on the sidelines this year, while Serena Williams tops the list of women’s players who won’t be competing.
The story on the men’s side is 2017 Wimbledon and Australian Open champ Roger Federer, who is a perfect 14-0 in Grand Slam matches during this remarkable comeback season. Federer is seeking his 20th career major title. But other than his storied rival Rafael Nadal — himself enjoying a wonderful comeback season — the path for Federer appears to be relatively clear.
On the women’s side, Garbine Muguruza is hoping to follow up on her Wimbledon victory. While Venus Williams, whom Muguruza bested at the All England Club, looks to break through after having made two Slam finals this season — falling short both times.
All-day coverage begins at 1:00 p.m. ET. ESPN has the action up until 6:00 p.m. ET, with ESPN2 taking over for the night session. Play will also be streamed online, via WatchESPN and the US Open website. The stream is free with a cable subscription on both sites. The WatchESPN app can be downloaded from the iTunes store and the Google Play store.
Flushing Meadows in New York is the place to be for tennis fans now that the 2017 U.S. Open is underway.
Monday’s schedule is jam-packed with major matches, especially on the women’s side, where Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Sharapova, Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza will all begin their respective quests for the year’s final Grand Slam title.
In the men’s bracket, folks will have to wait until Tuesday to catch a glimpse of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Until then, the 2017 tournament debuts of 20-year-old Alexander Zverev and 2014 champion Marin Cilic should keep folks plenty occupied, whether they’re watching at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center or from home.
The entire event will be carried live on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3, along with WatchESPN for those who would prefer to live-stream the matches. If you miss any of the action, tune into The Tennis Channel, which will carry replay TV coverage each day.
The most intriguing match of the day may well be one of the last. At 4:00 p.m. ET, Halep, the No. 2 ranked player in the WTA, will take on Sharapova at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Halep has played into the quarterfinals and beyond in 11 of the 14 events she’s played this year, including an appearance in the French Open final and a title run at the Madrid Masters.
She’ll have her hands full in the opening round with Sharapova. The 2006 U.S. Open champion has played just one match since May on account of soreness in her left arm. She does, however, have a history of handling Halep. Sharapova has defeated the 25-year-old Romanian six times in as many tries, highlighted by a victory in the 2014 French Open final.
Halep wasn’t taken aback when she found out she’d be facing Sharapova in her opening match—not entirely, anyway.
“My reaction was normal, because this year I had very tough draws every time almost,” Halep told WTA insider Courtney Nguyen. “Of course was a little bit, like, ‘How is it possible again?'”
