A Look at the US Open Tennis Championships

Our Top Contenders for the 2018 Grand Slam
2018 marks the 50th anniversary of the US Open Tennis Championships. The fourth and final tournament of this year’s tennis Grand Slam is set to provide two weeks of sensational competition from the world’s greatest players. Starting on Monday, August 27, and lasting two weeks, the US Open will close on Sunday, September 9, with the men’s final.

Competitors this year include NetJets Owners Angelique Kerber, Roger Federer, and Sloane Stephens. All three of these incredible athletes promise to be top contenders for this year’s title and are competitors to keep an eye out for. 

Angelique Kerber

Hot off a triumphant Wimbledon win that saw her beat Serena Williams, Kerber is set to be a real threat at this year’s US Open. After claiming her first win in New York two years ago, she’s already shown she knows how to handle herself on a hard court. 
“[NetJets] gives me the freedom and flexibility to choose flight times that suit my hectic schedule, and the peace of mind that I can rest and recharge on board a flight. This is vital when I come off the tennis court, and flying commercially would not offer me this luxury."
Angelique Kerber

Roger Federer

This living legend has already proven himself to be one of the world’s all-time greatest players. Since turning professional in 1998, he has gone on to win 20 tennis Grand Slam singles titles—the most ever for any male. Having won a record five consecutive titles at the US Open between 2004 and 2008, he is currently on great form and looks capable of claiming another victory this year.

Winning Formula

Roger Federer has been an Owner since 2004, crediting NetJets as part of his “winning formula” on tour. In a career where a few hours of play dictate your travel plans, having access to a reliable and flexible private jet fleet makes all the difference. Watch the video to learn more about how NetJets helps Roger Federer be at the top of his game.

Sloane Stephens

Sloane Stephens, the reigning US Open women’s singles champion, will be back this year to compete for her second title. Last year, the US Open was only her fifth tournament back in action after recovering from a foot injury. This illustrates her dedication to the game and commitment to success. We look forward to providing a seamless travel experience for Stephens as she focuses on beating the competition at this year’s tournament. 
“NetJets makes traveling effortless. All I need to focus on is my schedule, my training, and my next match. I never need to worry about the logistics of where I’m going next—NetJets takes care of every detail.”
Sloane Stephens
Flying around the world to compete in tournaments, all professional athletes push their bodies and their minds to the extreme. As they compete at the very highest level, we provide the highest level of care by helping manage their hectic schedules and complicated travel logistics. We provide a personalized travel experience and offer ultimate flexibility to accommodate their ever-changing timetables. With a world-class fleet at their demand and a number of private jets to choose from, these world-class players can singularly focus on their game.
