10. Only one unseeded player in the men's draw made it the quarterfinal stage of the 2018 US Open. Which Australian player defeated Roger Federer in the fourth round marking the first time he had beaten a top ten player?

Answer: Donald Young

This was the second time that Donald Young had reached the fourth round of the US Open having done so in 2011. John Isner, seeded 13, was the highest seeded player from the United States and he also lost in the fourth round. The other unseeded player that made it to the fourth round was Benoit Paire who lost to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in straight sets.

12. How many Spaniards were in the top 32 seeds of the draw?

13. Quite a few tennis players have managed to win the US Open men's singles title in consecutive years. Stefan Edberg won the US Open championships in 1991 and 1992, but what country was he representing?

From Quiz Who Won the US Open?

Answer: Sweden

Stefan Edberg was born in Vastervik in the year that England won the FIFA Football (Soccer) World Cup of 1966. By 1985, he had already won his first Grand Slam event, the Australian Open. He would also go on to win Wimbledon and the US Open at various times in his career. Like many successful tennis players, there is usually a surface which doesn't suit their play as well as other surfaces do. By extension, there is usually a Grand Slam event that will elude them throughout their career. For Edberg, his relative weakness was on clay and the furthest he ever managed to get in a French Open tournament was the final. Can't really complain about that though.

14. Men's number one seed Novak Djokovic was disqualified from the tournament in the fourth round in a match against Pablo Carreno Busta. What did Djokovic do to get himself disqualified?

From Quiz US Open 2020

Answer: Hit a ball after a point which hit a line judge

Djokovic had just lost a game to make it 6-5 to Carreno Busta in the first set and he hit a ball in frustration towards the baseline. This ball hit a line judge in the throat which automatically led to him being defaulted from the match.

15. Rafael Nadal was the defending champion going into the 2018 US Open. Under what unusual circumstances was he eliminated in the semifinals of the 2018 US Open?

From Quiz Serving Up the 2018 US Open

Answer: He retired from the match.

Prior to his semifinal match Rafael Nadal had played a long, five set match in the quarterfinals that included two tiebreakers in the fourth and fifth set. While he played well in the first set of the semifinal losing 7-6 in a tiebreaker, he was in obvious discomfort with lingering tendinitis in his knee. After losing the second set 6-2 Nadal retired from the match awarding his opponent the victory.

16. The quarter-finals of the 2015 Women's US Open had some interesting match-ups. Which quarterfinal match was played by two unseeded players, one from France and one from Italy?

From Quiz 2015 Tennis US Open - Women's Side

Answer: Kristina Mladenovic vs. Roberta Vinci

At the time of the 2015 US Open Mladenovic was the 40th ranked player in the world and Roberta Vinci was ranked 43rd. The other three quarterfinal matches featured a player in the top five against a player ranked in the 20s. Similar to the other major championships, the US Open has 32 seeded players.

17. Djokovic's exit from the tournament meant there were no remaining Grand Slam winners left in the men's draw and there would be a new Grand Slam champion in the men's game for the first time since what year?

From Quiz US Open 2020

Answer: 2014

With the dominance of a small number of players in the men's game in the previous decade, it had been six years since a man won a Grand Slam tournament for the first time in his career when Marin Cilic won the US Open in 2014.

18. The final of the men's 2018 US Open was a match between two former US Open champions. Which player won the final in straight sets, claiming his third US Open title and 14th major?

From Quiz Serving Up the 2018 US Open

Answer: Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic had a dominant tournament as he won his final five matches without losing a set. The 2018 season was a return to form for the Serbian champion after he sat out much of 2017 following elbow surgery. Djokovic's 14th major win tied him with Pete Sampras for third-most all time trailing only Rafael Nadal (17) and Roger Federer (20). The runner-up of the tournament was Juan Martin Del Potro who appeared in his first major final since the 2009 US Open when he defeated the five-time defending champion Roger Federer.

19. Rafael Nadal was the winner of the 2013 US Open and he seemed on the way to a third round victory when he won the first two sets of the match. Which alliteratively named Italian player came back from two sets down to defeat Nadal?

From Quiz 2015 Tennis US Open - Men's Side

Answer: Fabio Fognini

After Fognini's upset of Nadal in the third round he lost his next match to Feliciano Lopez in straight sets. Fognini is also an accomplished doubles player as he won his first Grand Slam doubles event at the 2015 Australian Open with teammate Simone Bolelli.

20. For the 14th time in a Grand Slam tournament Serena Williams and Venus Williams were matched against each other. How did Serena win the match?

From Quiz 2015 Tennis US Open - Women's Side

Answer: She won in three sets with Venus winning the second set.

Interestingly, every quarterfinal match of the 2015 US Open went to three sets. Serena outlasted Venus 6-2, 1-6, and 6-3 to make it to the semifinals. The match was the 27th overall meeting between the Williams sisters (13 in non-Grand Slam events) with Serena holding a 16-11 advantage.

21. During the tournament, excluding the qualifying stages, how many players retired during their matches?

From Quiz US Open 2010 Men's Singles

Answer: 8

Two players retired in the first round, three in the second, and three in the third round.

22. The 1999 US Open men's singles competition saw the same outcome as that of 1994. Who was the winner of the US Open in 1999 and was also known for his marriage to Steffi Graf?

From Quiz Who Won the US Open?

Answer: Andre Agassi

Andre Agassi is one of the very few men to have won all four of the Grand Slam tournaments on the tennis tour. He was most successful in Melbourne, winning the Australian Open four times. Furthermore he became the champion at Wimbledon, his first major win, in 1992 and became the king of clay, winning at the 1999 French Open. Add those titles to the two wins at the US Open and one gets an impressive total of eight Grand Slam titles.

23. Which American player made her first Grand Slam semi-final where she was beaten in three sets by Naomi Osaka?

From Quiz US Open 2020

Answer: Jennifer Brady

Brady produced some dominant wins on her way to the semi-finals, not dropping a set up to that point, including a win over former champion Angelique Kerber in the fourth round. Brady had recently won her first WTA title at Lexington just two weeks prior to the tournament and was seeded at number 28. In a competitive semi-final match, Osaka beat her 7-6, 3-6, 6-3.

24. The semi-finals were both won by underdogs. Which player from Romania, seeded second in the tournament, did Flavia Pennetta dominate in straight sets 6-1, 6-3?

From Quiz 2015 Tennis US Open - Women's Side

Answer: Simona Halep

Flavia Penneta's domination of the second ranked player in the world was surprising because three of her previous matches had gone to five sets including her first round match. With her appearance in the semifinals of the 2015 US Open Halep achieved the feat of reaching the quarterfinals of all four Grand Slam events in her career. The incorrect answer choices were players from Germany that made it to the third and fourth rounds.

25. Out of the 127 matches played, how many took five sets to be completed?

From Quiz US Open 2010 Men's Singles

Answer: 24

From Quiz Who Won the US Open?

Answer: Marat Safin

As well as entering the record books by becoming the first Russian man to win the US Open, Marat Safin became the first Russian to reach the semifinals of the Wimbledon men's singles event in 2008. The 2000 US Open final was a one-sided match between Marat Safin and America's Pete Sampras. Sampras was, at the time, looking for his fifth US Open title but Safin had other ideas and won the match in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, and 6-3.

27. Only one unseeded player from the women's 2018 US Open reached the quarterfinals of the event. Defeating the number two seed in the second round, which Ukranian player would lose to the eventual champion in the quarterfinals?

From Quiz Serving Up the 2018 US Open
