US Open Tennis 2021


The 2021 US Open will be the 141st release of tennis’ US Open and the fourth and last Grand Slam occasion of the year. It will be hung on open air hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.

Dominic Thiem and Naomi Osaka are the people’s singles reigning champs. Nonetheless, Thiem pulled out from the competition because of repeating injury.

Men’s reality No. 1 Novak Djokovic is trying to turn out to be only the second man in the Open Era, after Rod Laver in 1969, to finish the Calendar Year Grand Slam, on the off chance that he wins the men’s singles title. Also, with the withdrawal of both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, Djokovic will look for a 21st significant singles title, the greater part of any male part ever.
