US Open 2021: Scores, results, how to watch, stream, live updates, TV channel
The tennis calendar is back on track in 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted much of the 2020 season. The US Open is back at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York and will be showcasing some of the biggest stars in the sport.
The men’s field will be without some of its star power for the second consecutive year. Neither Roger Federer nor Rafael Nadal will be taking part in the US Open. Federer underwent knee surgery earlier this summer and hopes to return to the court in 2022. The Swiss tennis star did participate in Wimbledon earlier this summer, but suffered another knee injury at the Grand Slam tournament. Meanwhile, Nadal has been dealing with a chronic foot injury and recently announced that he is sitting out the rest of the 2021 season.
Defending US Open champion Dominic Thiem will also miss this year’s US Open as he deals with a wrist injury. Like Federer and Nadal, Thiem is going to be on the shelf for the remainder of the 2021 tennis season. Thiem suffered the wrist injury in Mallorca earlier this summer.
