US Open schedule 2020: TV coverage, channels & more to watch every match in tennis Grand Slam

After months of uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 U.S. Open is set to begin Aug. 31. 

Just the second major to take place in 2020 — normally New York City’s Grand Slam is the final one of the year — some of the biggest names in the sport will be missing this time around. Both the men’s and women’s singles champions from 2019, Rafael Nadal and Bianca Andreescu have withdrawn from the tournament. Roger Federer will also skip the tournament due to knee surgery.

The field is filled, however, with some formidable names and former champions including Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka. Also expected to compete are 16-year-old Coco Gauff and serve-and-volley master Taylor Townsend, who lost in last year’s Round of 16 to eventual champion Andreescu in three sets.

Here is the full 2020 US Open schedule, including TV coverage breakdown and order of play for each round.
