Tournament Edit

The 2022 US Open was the 142nd consecutive edition of the tournament and took place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park of Queens in New York City, New York, United States. The tournament was played on hard courts and took place over a series of 15 courts with Laykold surface, including the three existing main showcourts – Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium and Grandstand.

The tournament was run by the United States Tennis Association (USTA), supervised by the International Tennis Federation (ITF), and part of the 2022 ATP Tour (male tennis professionals) and the 2022 WTA Tour (female professional players) calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws, as singles draws remained in standard 128 person format in each category, as both doubles draws returned to standard 64 players. There were also singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which were part of the Grade A category of tournaments.

This was the first time at any tennis major that coaching was allowed from the stands.[3]

Broadcast Edit

In the United States, the 2022 US Open was the eighth year in a row under an 11-year, $825 million contract with ESPN, in which the broadcaster held exclusive rights to the entire tournament and the US Open Series. This meant that the tournament was not available on broadcast television.

All tournament matches not cablecasted by ESPN, which focuses almost exclusively on the singles competitions, were available online on ESPN+.
