Taking back its usual slot in 2021 as the final Grand Slam of the season, it will also represent a full return of crowds to 100% capacity to Flushing Meadows which was not seen in 2020.
The likes of Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev alongside Naomi Osaka, Ashleigh Barty, Aryna Sabalenka, Bianca Andreescu and Victoria Azarenka headline the respective ATP/WTA draws.
It will be the first Grand Slam in 24 years not to feature either Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer or Serena Williams with all three withdrawing due to injury showcasing a potential changing of the guard. For Djokovic though, a calendar slam remains in his sights and regaining the title he has not won since 2018. It is up to the chasing pack to stop him.
