In the beginning of Week 2, most of the top players in the game are still standing. Better yet, the competition they’re facing is usually much tougher, delivering quantity and quality.
From Tuesday through Friday of the second week of the US Open, or Days 9 through 12, the women’s singles players are progressing from the quarterfinal round through the semifinals and the men’s singles players are battling their fourth-round opponents and advancing through the quarterfinals.
Over the past three years fans with tickets to these four Day Sessions were treated to at least two marquee matchups per day, and sometimes they got to watch upward of seven or eight. Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams, Novak Djokovic, Maria Sharapova, Andy Murray and Victoria Azarenka have all played at least one day match during those four Day Sessions.
There are plenty of matches taking place on the outer courts as well. The best men’s and women’s doubles teams compete in quarterfinal and semifinal matches, while the mixed doubles competition is also well underway. The most talented teenagers in the game do battle in the junior events, while fans can watch their favorite players from the past in the Champions Invitational, including John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova. The matches in the US Open Wheelchair Competition also provide plenty of inspiration and entertaining rallies.
If you want to watch Rafa chase down a ball, hear a Sharapova shriek, feel the power of a Serena serve, hear a joke from the Djoker, a Week 2 Day Session will get you closer.
Week 2 has some of the best matches and matchups of the tournament – and the best chance to see a marathon match.
