The 2019 US Open was the 139th edition of tennis' US Open and the fourth and final Grand Slam event of the year. It was held on outdoor hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.

Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka were the men's and women's singles defending champions. Neither managed to defend their title, with Djokovic retiring in the fourth round due to a shoulder injury after losing the first two sets against Stan Wawrinka, and Osaka losing in the fourth round against Belinda Bencic.

Serena Williams set an Open Era record by reaching 10 US Open finals.

It was the first time since the 2017 Australian Open and fourth time in the Open Era that both the men's and women's number one seeds were defeated before the quarterfinals.

In a repeat of the 2019 Rogers Cup, Rafael Nadal won the men's singles title, defeating first time Grand Slam finalist Daniil Medvedev in a 5-set thriller for his 19th Grand Slam singles title. Bianca Andreescu won the women's singles title, defeating Serena Williams in straight sets in the final, becoming the first Canadian to win a Grand Slam singles title and the first person born in the 21st century of either gender, to win a Grand Slam title.

The 2019 US Open was the 139th 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 held on 17 DecoTurf hard courts.

The tournament was an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was part of the 2019 ATP Tour and the 2019 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consisted of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event. 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. Additionally, there were singles and doubles wheelchair tennis events for men, women and quads.

The tournament was played on hard courts and took place over a series of 17 courts with DecoTurf surface, including the three existing main showcourts – Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium, and Grandstand.

Broadcast[edit]

In the United States, the 2019 US Open was the fifth 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. This also made ESPN the exclusive U.S. broadcaster for three of the four tennis majors.
