US Open National Playoffs set for fourth season
March 5, 2013 05:04 PM

If you’ve ever dreamed of stepping on the court at the US Open, or simply want to test your skills against some of the best tennis players in the country, this is your chance. The US Open National Playoffs are returning for a fourth season in 2013, allowing anyone and everyone 14 years of age or older to compete for a spot in the 2013 US Open.

Competition in the 2013 US Open National Playoffs will take place in men’s singles, women’s singles and mixed doubles. The men’s and women’s singles champions earn a berth into the US Open Qualifying Tournament, while the mixed doubles champions receive a wild card into the main draw of the 2013 US Open.

"Anyone who dreams of playing in the US Open—top junior players, collegians, teaching professionals, ‘weekend warriors’ or recreational players—can make that dream a reality through the US Open National Playoffs," said Dave Haggerty, USTA Chairman, CEO and President. "The level of singles and mixed doubles competition is always strong, and our committed USTA sections do a terrific job running the sectional qualifying tournaments. It all makes the event unique and special for our sections, US Open fans and tennis players across the country."

The US Open National Playoffs began in 2010 in an effort to expand the reach of the US Open to cities across the country. Play started in singles only, with a mixed doubles event added to the slate in 2011.

The US Open National Playoffs begin as a series of sectional qualifying tournaments, held this year in 13 USTA sections. The men’s, women’s and mixed doubles champions or top available finishers from each sectional qualifying tournament advance to the US Open National Playoffs – Championships, with the winners there advancing to compete at the US Open.

The US Open National Playoffs – Men’s and Women’s Singles Championships will be held August 16-19, and the Mixed Doubles Championship are slated for August 21-24. All three events take place in conjunction with the New Haven Open at Yale presented by First Niagara, an Emirates Airline US Open Series event.

Registration for each of the 13 sectional qualifying tournaments begins March 15.

More than 1,200 players competed nationally in the 2012 US Open National Playoffs, ranging from experienced professionals, to upcoming junior players, to current and former college standouts to USTA League players and recreational players of all stripes. Past participants include Olympic skier Bode Miller and ESPN’s Mike Greenberg, who teamed with six-time US Open champion Chris Evert in the mixed doubles event.

"It’s always amazing to see the passion and determination of those competing to fulfill their dreams of playing in the US Open," said Derek Fisher, US Open National Playoffs Tournament Director. "We’re excited for another group of talented players and the perfect host—The New Haven Open at Yale presented by First Niagara—to make the fourth US Open National Playoffs the strongest yet."

To compete in the US Open National Playoffs, you must have a USTA membership valid through Aug. 26, 2013.

Re: U.S. Open National Playoffs: May 18-August 24, 2013

- Robert Seby
- Jeff Dadamo
- Elliot Orkin
- Patrick Daciek
- Damon Gooch
- JC Aragone
- Nolan Paige
- Andrew Ball
- Tony Larson
- Matija Pecotic
- Ronnie Schneider
- Charles Boyce
- Nick Papac

Normally Dadamo should win this and grab the QWC.

But great to see JC Aragone here. I don't think that he can upset a guy like Dadamo but who knows...
