Tournament

Arthur Ashe Stadium where the Finals of US Open take place

The 2014 US Open was the 134th edition of the tournament and it is held 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 an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and was part of the 2014 ATP World Tour and the 2014 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 singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which was part of the Grade A category of tournaments, and singles, doubles and quad events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the NEC tour under the Grand Slam category.

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

Notable events

  • In winning the men's doubles, Bob and Mike Bryan reached a number of major milestones:[6]
    • It was their 100th ATP World Tour title as a team.
    • This was their fifth US Open title, taking them past Bob Lutz and Stan Smith for the most in the Open era, and drawing them level with 1880s players Richard Sears and James Dwight for the most overall.
    • They also extended their own records for most Grand Slam titles as a team (16) and most consecutive seasons with at least one Grand Slam title (10).
    • The men's singles final represented the first time a Grand Slam men's singles final had not featured a member of the "Big Four" since the 2005 Australian Open.

Broadcast

The tournament was scheduled to be broadcast in more than 200 countries around the world. In the United States the tournament was broadcast live on CBS, ESPN, and Tennis Channel. CBS ended its 47-year tenure as the broadcast home of the Open. Beginning in 2015, ESPN will have the exclusive television rights to all USTA events, including the Open and the US Open Series.

In 2014, live coverage emanated from seven courts, including Arthur Ashe Stadium, Louis Armstrong Stadium and the Grandstand, as well as Court 5, Court 11, Court 13, and Court 17.
