US Open: When Is The Draw & More
Of the four Grand Slam tournaments, the US Open has the most diverse list of champions over the past decade, featuring six different champions since 2009. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal lead the way with three titles each during that time period, while Juan Martin del Potro (2009), Andy Murray (2012), Marin Cilic (2014) and Stan Wawrinka (2016) have all won the hard-court major once.
In comparison, only five players total — Djokovic, Nadal, Wawrinka, Roger Federer and Andy Murray — have combined to win the other three majors — the Australian Open, Roland Garros and Wimbledon — over the past decade.
Defending champion Djokovic and Nadal are set to be the top two seeds at the 2019 edition, followed by Federer, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev. The 38-year-old Federer, who will be making his 19th appearance at Flushing Meadows, claimed a record straight five straight US Open titles from 2004-08 and has since finished runner-up on two other occasions (2009, 2015).
Medvedev has dominated the month of August, reaching three straight finals at the Citi Open and back-to-back ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, the Coupe Rogers and Western & Southern Open. The 23-year-old Russian, who upset Djokovic in the Cincinnati semi-finals en route to his first Masters 1000 title, enters the US Open at a career-high No. 5 ATP Ranking.

Did You Know… The US Open bears little resemblance to the tournament started in 1881. It has evolved from an exclusive men’s singles and doubles tournament in Newport, R.I., to a two-week sports and entertainment extravaganza held in Flushing, N.Y. More than 700,000 fans enter the gates annually at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center..
