The US Open has been through some changes over the years, but it’s been around in one form or another since 1881 making it one of the oldest tennis championships in the world and it draws millions of viewers from all over the globe. This, the 139th edition of the tournament begins on August 26th and takes place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in Flushing Meadows, New York City.

In the first round we’ll see some awesome action with Maria Sharapova going up against Serena Williams. This will be the first time they’ve ever played each other in the US Open. Outside of the Open they’ve competed regularly though, and out of the 22 matches they’ve played together, Serena Williams has won 19 of them. The first round also sees Rafael Nadal play John Millman and defending champion Novak Djokovic play Roberto Carballes Baena.
