Federer won’t participate in the tournament since he’s out for the rest of the year with an injury. With five U.S. Open championships, he’s tied with Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors for the most titles in the Open Era. He last won the event in 2008, falling in the finals to Djokovic last year.

On the women’s side, Serena Williams is the No.1 seed and the overwhelming favorite. She had won the championship three straight times, but she was upset in last year’s semifinals. Angelique Kerber is the No.2 seed, while Garbine Muguruza and Agnieszka Radwanska are the No.3 and No.4 seeds, respectively.

The tournament starts on Monday, Aug. 28 and concludes with the men’s final on Sunday, Sept. 11. The women’s final is set for Saturday, Sept. 10.

Tickets are available at http://USOpen.org or http://ticketmaster.com.. They can be purchased for as little as $35, while the most expensive seats for the men’s final cost upwards of $6,000.
