The Emirates Airline US Open Series brings six weeks of exhilarating tennis action to the United States, culminating at the final major championship event of the year, the US Open at Flushing Meadows in New York City.
The Emirates Airline US Open Series links nine ATP World Tour and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour tournaments together, with the world’s best players earning points reflective of their performance. At the end of the Emirates Airline US Open Series, the three players who have collected the most points win a bonus at the US Open.
The 2013 Emirates Airline US Open Series will see last year’s men’s winner Novak Djokovic defend his title as he seeks to cement his position as the world’s number one player. In the women’s game, former Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitová clinched her first Emirates Airline US Open Series title and will be hoping for more success on the US hard courts in 2013.
The sponsorship of the Emirates Airline US Open Series sees Emirates build on its existing tennis sponsorships in North America, which include the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells and the Rogers Cup in Canada.
