FLUSHING MEADOWS, N.Y. – ESPN, in its ninth consecutive year of exclusivity, has been on-site at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for several weeks to produce the US Open — the final Slam of the year.

The event concludes this weekend with the Women’s Singles Championship on Saturday and the Men’s Singles Championship on Sunday, Sept. 10, both at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN, ESPN+ and ESPN Deportes.
