Rolex and Tennis

The US Open is the final Grand Slam® tournament of the tennis season. As a privileged partner of world tennis, Rolex has been associated with this event since 2018.

Inaugurated in 1881, this tournament has been played on the hard surface at Flushing Meadows, New York, since 1978. Among the 17 competition courts is the largest in the world, Arthur Ashe Stadium, with a seating capacity of more than 23,500.


A fusion of energy

The US Open is known for its electric ambience, a reflection of New York itself, “the city that never sleeps”. At this vibrant, dynamic event – played at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center – the action also unfolds in the stands, where spectators are not afraid to give voice to their excitement.

Rolex testimonees and the US Open

Amid this incandescent atmosphere, US Open matches have become a legend. Bianca Andreescu’s 2019 win and Roger Federer’s five consecutive titles from 2004 to 2008 are etched in memory.

Alongside them, Rod Laver, Chris Evert, Stefan Edberg, Pat Rafter, Justine Henin, Juan Martín del Potro, Angelique Kerber, Sloane Stephens and Dominic Thiem, all Rolex Testimonees and US Open victors, embody technical precision and the quest to become a better version of oneself.

The tournament of trailblazers

The US Open is fertile ground for innovation in tennis. From introducing the tiebreak and scheduling games at night, to implementing Hawk-Eye Live – a digital refereeing system that makes line calls immediately – every effort is made to ensure the tournament remains as compelling as ever.

Over the years, Rolex has extended its involvement in the sport and now supports most of the major competitions: the four Grand Slam® tournaments, the Davis Cup, the Laver Cup, the Nitto ATP and WTA Finals, and all of the ATP Masters 1000 tournaments, including the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters, the Rolex Shanghai Masters and the Rolex Paris Masters.
