The 2018 US Open is the 138th edition of tennis' US Open and the fourth and final Grand Slam event of the year. It is held on outdoor hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City. This is the last Grand Slam to have 32 seeds with the format reverting to 16 seeds from the start of the 2019 season.[1]

Rafael Nadal and Sloane Stephens were the defending champions in the men's and women's singles events, but they were unsuccessful to defend the titles. Nadal retired during his semifinal match against Juan Martín del Potro. Stephens was defeated in the quarterfinals by Anastasija Sevastova, whom Stephens had beaten at the same stage the previous year.

The 2018 US Open will be the 138th edition of the tournament and will take 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 will be held on 14 DecoTurf hard courts.

The tournament is an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was part of the 2018 ATP World Tour and the 2018 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament will consist of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event. There are also singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which are part of the Grade A category of tournaments. Additionally, there are singles and doubles wheelchair tennis events for men, women and quads.

The tournament is played on hard courts and takes place over a series of 15 courts with DecoTurf surface, including the two existing main showcourts – Arthur Ashe Stadium and the new Grandstand. The brand new Louis Armstrong Stadium will be ready for the 2018 tournament and replaced the temporary stadium on the same site from the 2017 edition.

Broadcast[edit]

In the United States, the 2018 US Open will be the fourth year in a row under an 11-year, $825 million contract with ESPN, in which the broadcaster holds exclusive rights to the entire tournament and the US Open Series. This means that the tournament is not available on broadcast television. This also makes ESPN the exclusive U.S. broadcaster for three of the four tennis majors.

Notable stories[edit]

Women's Singles final[edit]

Naomi Osaka defeated Serena Williams in the final, 6–2, 6–4. During the final, Williams received three code violations, the second coming with a point penalty and the third with a game penalty.[2] The issue started during the second set when chair umpire Carlos Ramos cited Serena for a signal that was sent from her coach. Serena was unaware of the signal and verbally sparred with Ramos, saying "I don't cheat to win. I'd rather lose." and "You owe me an apology. I have never cheated in my life." After a mistake later in the second set, Serena smashed her racket into the court. This led to her second code violation, which Serena found out about upon attempting to serve and which increased the dispute between Serena and Ramos. During the change at the 3-4 mark, a discussion between Serena and Ramos broke down leading Serena to call Ramos both "a liar" and "a thief." As both players were concluding the changeover and getting set, Ramos issued Serena her third code violation. This led to confusion from both players who did not appear to hear the announcement, which Ramos explained to both after summoning them over to his seat.[3] At this point, US Open referee, Brian Earley, and WTA supervisor, Donna Kelso, were summoned to the court due to the dispute.[4] A four minute delay occurred due to a discussion between Serena, Earley, and Kelso regarding the issues. After the delay, Serena won the next game before Osaka won the set and match.[5][6][7]

† Serena Williams was ranked 26 on the day when seeds were announced. Nevertheless she was deemed a special case and seeded 17th by the organizers because she missed a significant portion of the last 12-month period due to pregnancy and maternity.
‡ The player did not qualify for the tournament in 2017. Accordingly, points for her 16th best result are deducted instead.
