How to Watch the 2023 U.S. Open

The U.S. Open is here! The annual Grand Slam tournament, the fourth and final Grand Slam of the calendar year, will take place over the next two weeks. The women’s singles finals will be held on September 9, and the men’s singles finals on September 10.

It’s an exciting time in U.S. tennis: American players are expected to make deep runs in the tournament, including Frances Tiafoe, Coco Gauff, Taylor Fritz, Jess Pegula, and more. And, tennis legend Venus Williams will be playing in her 24th (!) U.S. Open, as she received a wildcard into the competition.

Like previous years, the entire tournament will be broadcast on ESPN. It will air on ESPN, ESPN2, and ABC, and stream on ESPN+.
