US Open Draw Ceremony

The US Open Draw Ceremony, which determines the match-ups and order of play for the main draw of the US Open, will take place on Thursday, 12 noon, at the Fan Week Center Stage.

The ceremony will feature top ESPN talent and analysts (edit: I guess Alex STEVENSON will be there :hysteric: ) discussing all of the tournament’s potential highlights, and potential pitfalls.

Don't miss special appearances by the defending champions Novak Djokovic and Naomi Osaka!

================================================

what are you guys hoping for from this draw ceremony :unsure:

obviously I am hoping for favorable draws for all the Chinese ladies, especially SAISAI who is on the mend after being forced to withdraw from Bronx and as one of the top ranked UNSEEDED, deserves a good draw :angel:

They should arrange it nicely, I want a quality draw like we had in Cincy. Not this scub-offs as Vee would say. And no pigeon matches as well. Imagine poor Donna meeting Sevastova in R3, she will cry for real this time. Hopefully Osaka will get a chance to play, and won't draw Poots.

Anybody know if the Draw is shown on Facebook sites? or else where?
it should be, but they won't post link or anything until tomorrow

in the USA, it will probably also be on ESPN with Alex Stevenson breaking down the draw :eek:h:

Worst Case Scenario for Naomi Osaka would be drawing Poots as been mentioned as well as Su-Wei Hsieh (R3) and Keys in the R16 with Serena looming in the QF's.

Hopefully Saisai gets some of those walking-Bye's draws like Ostapenko, Bouchard, Azarenka.

Re: Countdown to 2019 USO GS 2000 Main Draw Ceremony: Thursday 8/22 Noon Local Time

I'm confused by the "GS 2000" in the title...
I know GSs give 2000 as max pts to the winner, but it's misleading. We're not in the 2000s but in 2019 :p


Anyway, I'm anxious

I have this feeling that Serena will draw either Gauff/Venus/Sharapova/Azarenka R1 :eek:h:

And seeing Osaka's luck with GS draws and with familiar opponents she'll probably get Hsieh/Putintseva/Keys in her quarter.

that's just the OPs usual BS on a daily basis, of course everyone knows the slams award 2000 points max.
try to ignore it like white noise, it works.

Opposite, another cakewalk incoming for Serena as usual so a qualifier or a WC in R1 and then the seeds in her quarter will fall like flies before they have a chance to meet :eek:

Gauff is going to be an interesting draw. I reckon no-one will want to draw her. Especially a big player, imagine the hype.

I don't know why Gauff is such a big thing now...she made nice run in a slam and all of a sudden, she's the next big thing...has she made any other big run???...NO!...overhyped....

If Gauff gets an easy pass just for the ratings I might actually believe the draws are rigged.

The Diyas easy win over Gauff stopped the excitement for a bit, down to Cori to create the buzz again with another run

I prefer calling her Cori, we already have another Coco on tour

Just a couple more hours and we'll have plenty to talk about and debate until Monday.

I am constantly disappointed in seeing this stuff... With so many other good players making finals going through a battlefield, it would be nice to see Serena have to do this from time to time also...
