Tennis like never before returns to the USA this August as the UTS Tour stops off at a legendary venue for its second event of 2024 – with big names Nick “King” Kyrgios, Andrey “Rublo” Rublev and Casper “The Ice Man” Ruud already confirmed to compete.

UTS New York takes place at the Forest Hills Stadium – the former venue for the US Open – on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd August.

UTS boasts a thrillingly innovative format and a disruptive set of rules designed to create short, action-packed and sensational matches – and it’s back in the States following its amazing weekend in Los Angeles last July.

The line-up is set to include Kyrgios, who has been away from the ATP Tour but recently confirmed he will be back on court within the next few months, and UTS Oslo champion Rublev, who already has his spot at the end-of-year UTS Grand Final (6-8 December).

A different format in New York

They’ll be joined by Alex “The Demon” de Minaur – the runner-up in Oslo – who is second in the UTS race rankings, closing in on qualification for the season-ending showdown, plus former world No 2 Ruud, and legendary French showman Gael “La Monf” Monfils.

Because it runs over two days rather than the usual three, US audiences will get to see a newly adapted format of the UTS Tour they’ve come to love. Eight players will compete in a single elimination bracket – through quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final.

And if a player is knocked out in the quarter-final, he’ll still get to play a second match – a classification match to give him the chance to gain more UTS points to boost him up the rankings. There’s more than just points on offer at Forest Hills, with a total prize pool of $1 million on the line as well.

Tickets for this tennis spectacle go on sale on Friday 22 March and can be purchased directly from www.uts.live.
