Watching this years tournament will be interesting. Many look forward to seeing one of the most dominant tennis players in history, Serena Williams. Winning the open would mean two very important things for this exceptional athlete. She is just one major victory away from tying for 1st place with Margaret Court for 24 career majors. Many wonder if she will retire if she makes it. The schedule of matches can be found here.
Watching Serena is impressive. Her dominance in the last 2 decades has been fun to watch. Currently, she takes third place in the number of weeks ranked at number 1. The only players with more weeks are Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. Having been a professional for more than 20 years, fans have to wonder how many years she has left in tennis. There was speculation of retirement in 2010. The truth is, she will retire when she is ready to, and not before. Even after her pregnancy, she still has the will to dominate. Right now, she is on top of the world and still going strong. It is hard to argue that she will retire when she keeps winning tournaments.
In 2013, it was announced that the US Open (tennis) would move from CBS to ESPN in 2015. It has been there ever since. This move represents a growing trend in the US market from traditional programming to paid programming. However, if you were an American and were traveling abroad, or if you were living outside of the US, you would have encountered problems with viewing the US Open (tennis) anyway.
The change “opens” the door for more people to watch overseas because of the new premium streaming service, ESPN+. Initially, we are sure the decision for the USTA was simply a monetary one. There is no way they could have foretold a potential worldwide market expansion. By using a VPN and ESPN+, you will be able to enjoy the US Open as much as you want.
