2009 US Open (tennis)

The 129th U.S. Open is an international tennis tournament and took place from 31 August to 14 September 2009 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park in New York, USA.

Defender of the single were Roger Federer in the men's and Serena Williams in the women. In the men's doubles were Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan, in women's doubles Cara Black and Liezel Huber, the defending champion. Cara Black and Leander Paes were the defending champions in the mixed doubles. In a way, this U.S. Open was a tournament surprise winner or at least not the tournament's defending champion. Although managed it in three of the five events to the finals ( and twice in the semi-finals ), but none succeeded in the successful defense of the title. While in the women's and men's doubles titles respectively on the imports of the four seeded teams, the unseeded duo Carly Gullickson U.S. and Travis Parrott managed a real surprise coup. Also, that the started a wild card Kim Clijsters, would crown her comeback on the WTA tour coinciding with a major title, was not expected by the bookmakers. And finally, the victory of Juan Martin del Potros over the Swiss maestro Roger Federer in five sets, and thus the first major title for the twenty -year-old Argentine.

Due to a rain delay and the resulting Schedule shift the Lord finale was, as has been a year earlier, discharged until Monday. The since Thursday evening recurring rain had on the Arthur Ashe Stadium again stimulated the discussion about the construction of a roof. At the Australian Open and the Wimbledon Championships, the Centre Courts are already equipped with an appropriate design, at the Stade Roland Garros a roof is at least planned.

The title of junior secured Heather Watson from the UK.
