The 142nd running of the US Open comes to a close this weekend with the coronation of a new women’s champion after the early departure of Emma Raducanu.
Who will participate in the final?
Iga Swiatek against Ons Jabeur.
When is the US Open Women’s Final?
The women’s singles final will be played on Saturday, September 10, expected around 9pm BST.
Where is it held?
The tournament takes place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York, and the women’s final takes place at the centerpiece of the complex, Arthur Ashe Stadium, the largest tennis stadium in the world.
What TV channel is it on in the UK?
Amazon Prime Sport has exclusive rights to the US Open. A subscription to Amazon Prime Video costs £7.99 per month, with a 30-day free trial. You can also get unlimited streaming access to Amazon Prime Video as part of a full Amazon Prime membership, which costs £79 per year or, to avoid a lengthy annual contract, £7.99 per month.

You can also return to follow all the major games on our dedicated live blogs.
How can I watch it in the US?
In the US, the live broadcast of the last grand slam of the year is exclusive to ESPN and ESPN2. However, the Tennis Channel will also show encore matches and other non-live programming.
Who is the defending champion?
Emma Raducanu won the title in 2021 during her fairytale run in New York, beating Leyla Fernandez in straight sets, but has since failed to win a tournament. Raducanu’s defense of the championship faltered with a first-round loss to Alize Cornet.
How much money will the winner get?
Both the men’s and women’s singles champions will receive a check for $2,500,000, which is just over £2.2 million.
Ons Jabeur reached a second consecutive Grand Slam title match without producing her best tennis on Thursday night, taking full advantage of a shaky performance from Caroline Garcia to win their semi-final 6-1, 6-3.
Jabeur, a 28-year-old from Tunisia, came second at Wimbledon in July and will now become the first African woman to compete in a US Open final in the professional era, which dates back to 1968.
Jabeur will try to win her first major championship on Saturday when she meets top seed Iga Swiatek, a 3-6, 6-1, 6-4 winner of Aryna Sabalenka.
Swiatek, a 21-year-old from Poland, already owns two French Open red clay trophies, but had never made it past the fourth round on New York’s hard courts.
What are the last chances?
- Iga Swiatek 15/8
- Our Jabeur 9/2
Last chances from September 9th
