US Open schedule 2021: Full draws, TV coverage, channels & more to watch every tennis match

The final Grand Slam of the 2021 calendar is officially here. Beginning on Aug. 30 the top tennis stars will descend onto the hard courts of Flushing, Queens in New York City for the US Open. 

Storylines are aplenty this year but some of the biggest news revolves around who will not be there: Serena Williams (hamstring), Rafael Nadal (foot) and Roger Feder (knee) are all out. It marks the first time since 1997 that all three won’t be picking up a racquet for the tournament — or any major, in fact.

Nadal and Federer are currently tied for the most Grand Slam titles in men’s tennis at 20 with Novak Djokovic. If the Serbian wins on Sept. 12, he’ll not only surpass the dynamic duo but will become the first singles player since Steffi Graf (1988) to win every major in a calendar year. He’s already captured the Australian and French Opens and Wimbledon. The last man to sweep the majors was Rod Laver way back in 1969.

Other notable names to keep an eye on on the women’s side include No. 1 Ash Barty, Naomi Osaka, 2019 champ Bianca Andreescu and America’s Coco Gauff. On the men’s side, keep an eye on Alexander Zverev who is on the same side of the bracket as Djokovic; the German ended Djokovic’s Golden Slam attempt in Tokyo. Canadian Denis Shapovalov is also on the same side, setting up a potential Wimbledon semifinal rematch.

Here is the full 2021 US Open schedule, including draws, TV coverage breakdown and order of play for each round.
