The 2021 US Open main draw runs from August 30 - September 12 in New York City at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. The tournament takes place for the 141st time and is the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. Dominic Thiem is the men’s singles defending champion but has withdrawn following an injury. Naomi Osaka is the women’s singles defending champion and will be aiming to claim the title for the third time in four years. Meanwhile, No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic looks to complete the calendar Grand Slam after winning the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon already this year. Should the Serbian lift the title here for the fifth time, he will also overtake Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to become the first-ever man to win 21 Grand Slam singles titles. With full capacity crowds back again, it’s time for the greatest return!

I really understand the hype about Emma Radacanu and the way she has destroyed players this tournament has being something to behold but my story of this tournament has to be Leylah Fernandez! To come through 3 set matches against Osaka, Kerber and Svitolina(winning a tiebreak in each) just shows she really cuts it at this level! She never seems to panic and is just class! No matters what happens for the rest of year, this is just amazing stuff!

Mental Strength won Leylah this match. Even when she was down you always felt she was in control. You could feel Svitolina breaking down slowly until she finally did. Slaying Giants is Leylah Fernandez onward!!!!
This is starting to feel like 2019 ! Another young Canadian woman thrilling us with extraordinary tennis. Keep it going Laylah !! 🇨🇦

wow! I was expecting Leylah to fold up from newbie jitteriness when Elina broke her serve and tied the game 5-5 in 3rd set, but this girl has mental fortitude to fight it out. If she continues with this mindset & attitude, she just might end up with a US Open trophy in her hand.

I loved them both. They both fought and gave all their hearts into every single game. I thought the Sakkari match was the best of this tournament, but these two were just amazing! Congratulations to them both for giving us such an incredible match yet. Leylah ❤️ Elina! 💐💐💐

She's a lefty. My new favorite tennis player.
Wow! Leylah Fernandez she is fire! I’m a lefty myself. She is playing amazing tennis this tournament. She knocked out my favorite player Naomi. But when I see Leylah play and how bold she can play, she amazes me! She defeating all big players on her way to the semifinals. She is now one of my favorite players including Emma Raducanu for winning this tournament!

It’s refreshing to see an aggressive yet cheerful young talent who can delight the crowd both with shot making and demeanor. A welcome change from the angst and drama of some of her peers in recent times. Let’s hope that both her potential and upbeat personality endure the inevitable high expectations that follow.
Wow. Just wow. Incredible player and mental strength especially at that age.
Leylah won because she was more aggressive than Elina. Leylah took risks to dictate! Defense only gets you so far.
And she did all that without even a little grunt! Love this woman.

Sandy Khoury:
Great match and a bright future ahead for Fernandez.
That volley at 5:5 in the tie break will probably haunt Svitolina for some time... Easy put-away, but she played it over-carefully and let Fernandez back in the point. Great passing shot nonetheless!!

Both Radacanu and Fernadez are incredibly likeable. Big difference and huge improvement for the game.
Matt Lee
Matt Lee:
When she goes up for the next point, you wouldn't be able to tell if she'd won or lost the previous point. Her mental strength (along with the massive forehands and net play) is probably her greatest asset. Absolutely incredible!

Let's hope she shows a similar form through her career , cuz' those shots a very strong. Hits the ball early, reads the game well, positions fast from forhand to backhand. Looks unreal at times.
Only watched all her highlights, I'll tune in for the semi 4 sure.

How is her serve?
Oliver Juria
Oliver Juria:
every top players she beats seemed to have a genuine spirit and truly graceful after losing to this teenager. they probaby see a tremendous potential in Leyla.

Leylah moves the ball well. Joy to see her add some variety into the women's game.
She moves so well, very fast and stable so she has a formidable defence. Her shots are compact and efficient on both wings and she can both handle pace and generate her own when needed. She can hit almost every type of shot and some pretty acute angles, except perhaps the lob. She seems very consistent. No wonder she in the Semis. A joy to watch as well, hope to see much more of her in the future. Keep going!

She's a WARRIOR on Court, Love her fighting Spirit. GO GO GO Leylah 💪💪💪👏👏👏❤
Classy young Leylah shows the women's tennis world that it is totally bogus and unnecessary to grunt and yelp like a banshee to hit a tennis ball. When will the tennis overlords wise-up and ban that obnoxious practice??? A rule against this ridiculous antic is long overdue.

She’s loving the crowd and pressure. 19 yrs. old I’ll collapse with that kind pressure.

A little lucky at the end, but otherwise what a performance! From both players as a matter of fact!

Someone who watches these highlights without the score, would think that Fernandez won the match 6-2, 6-2 or something.
Whenever Elina regresses to playing every shot up the middle of the court I know it's only a matter of time before she loses. She played right into Leylah's strengths. Should be a great final!
Another great match from two great players.
Looks like Elina was pretty amazed by Leylah's pass at 2:26 too with her hand to her mouth lol

Beating 3 different style top players in a row is super impressive. Would like to see her play Serena. If she beats Serena, then the tennis world will be hers.

Svitolina's previous round opponents are now thinking, "How did I not realize that she had such a weak second serve?"
