The US Open in 2022 will take place from August 29 to September 11, 2022. The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York, USA, will host the hard-court Grand Slam competition, which was first held over a century and a half ago in 1881.
Is Rafael Nadal playing in the 2022 US Open Tennis?
Certainly Yes! Nadal would be competing in this year’s competition. The World No. 1 Medvedev, 22-time major champion Rafael Nadal, two-time ATP Masters 1000 champion Carlos Alcaraz, and Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas will all compete at the US Open.
However, Nadal is still recovering from the abdominal ailment that led to his withdrawal from Wimbledon’s semifinal match.
In Cincinnati, the Spaniard made his comeback and fell to eventual champion Borna Coric in three sets. It is said he will be better prepared if it is confirmed that he won’t face Medvedev until the championship match.
Nadal is still the favorite to win the championship in New York next month despite his clear health difficulties. He is unbeaten at Grand Slam tournaments this year.
After a three-year absence, the five-time previous US Open winner from Spain will play at Flushing Meadows.
