National Playoffs - Rules & Regulations
2015 INFORMATION

The US Open National Playoffs is a series of tournaments that gives any player 14 years of age or older who meets the eligibility requirements the opportunity to qualify for the 2015 US Open. Fourteen sections will host a Sectional Qualifying Tournament this Spring to include men’s singles, women’s singles and mixed doubles with thirteen of the participating sections adding men’s doubles and women’s doubles (new for 2015). Players/teams will compete in a single elimination draw. Singles players will play to the best-of-three tiebreak sets and doubles teams will play two tiebreak sets, no-ad scoring, with a match tiebreak in lieu of a third set. Within each singles division, players will be seeded based on their Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) at the Tournament Referee's discretion. Within each doubles division, the top two teams will be seeded based on their ATP/WTA computer ranking (if any).

The winner or top finisher of each Sectional Qualifying Tournament in each division (men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, mixed doubles) will advance to the US Open National Playoffs Championships in their respective division. The winner of each Singles Championship (1 male, 1 female) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2015 US Open Qualifying Tournament, August 25-28, 2015. The winners of the Men’s & Women’s Doubles Championship (1 men’s team, 1 women’s team) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2015 US Open Doubles Championship, commencing September 2, 2015. The winner of the Mixed Doubles Championship (1 team) will receive a wild card entry to compete in the 2015 US Open Mixed Doubles Championship, commencing September 2, 2015. The US Open takes place at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.

US Open wild cards to be awarded on USTA Pro Circuit
July 9, 2015 02:35 PM
By Sally Milano, USTA.com

For the fourth straight year, Americans competing on the USTA Pro Circuit will have the chance to earn a wild card into the US Open.

In the US Open Wild Card Challenge, the U.S. man and U.S. woman who earn the most ATP World Tour and WTA ranking points at two of three selected USTA Pro Circuit hard-court events this summer will earn main-draw wild cards into the 2015 US Open. Only Americans who did not earn direct entry into the Open are eligible.

The University of the Pacific $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit Challenger, a new $50,000 USTA Pro Circuit event in Stockton, Calif., kicks off the women’s wild card challenge the week of July 13. The men’s challenge gets underway at the $50,000 Levene Gouldin & Thompson Tennis Challenger in Binghamton, N.Y., the week of July 20.

In addition to Stockton, the other two women's events that comprise the challenge are the $50,000 FSP Gold River Women’s Challenger, which will be held in Sacramento, Calif., the week of July 20, and the $50,000 Kentucky Bank Tennis Championships, which will take place in Lexington, Ky., the week of July 27.

Besides Binghamton, the men's tournaments are the $50,000 Kentucky Bank Tennis Championships in Lexington, Ky., the week of July 27, and the $100,000 Comerica Bank Challenger in Aptos, Calif., the week of Aug. 10.

All tournaments will be streamed live on www.procircuit.usta.com. Tournaments can also be followed on the USTA Pro Circuit’s phone app by searching “procircuit” in the app store.

The USTA first used the US Open wild card format for its 2012 wild cards, won by Steve Johnson and Mallory Burdette, both of whom reached the third round of the US Open. In 2013, Bradley Klahn, who won his first-round match, and Shelby Rogers both earned the wild cards. Last year, Nicole Gibbs (pictured above) reached the third round of the US Open (her career-best Grand Slam result), while Wayne Odesnik earned the men’s wild card.

The USTA also utilizes the wild-card challenge format for the French Open and Australian Open.

The 2015 US Open main draw will be held Monday, Aug. 31, to Sunday, Sept. 13.

Information on the US Open Wild Card Challenge will be available at www.procircuit.usta.com and on Twitter through @USTAProCircuit.

Does Hewitt simply get the TA wild card or do they get to get one WC + Hewitt (his last go, ex-champ etc)

In any case it's going to be a mad race for the US Wild cards. These are the candidates with a shot:

Fratangelo, Krajicek, Harrison, Donaldson, Tiafoe, Nguyen, Novikov, M. Russell (his farewell tournament), plus youngsters: Kozlov, Paul, Opelka, Mmoh, Fritz. That's already 13. I guess 2 of them will win the two qualification tournaments, Kalamazoo and the Challenge, but still 4 places..

Unless they've suddenly changed their minds, don't forget the NCAA champ will get a wild card, so essentially 3 places left.............

I would love to see Russell and Ginepri get the wildcards for their farewell tournaments, but I doubt that's gonna happen.

When will the U.S. Open Wild Cards be announced? I imagine they will give the remaining wild cards to the highest ranked American players outside the top 100: Frantangelo, Harrison, Kraijek and Donaldson (though Frantangelo may get in through the Wild Card Challenge, I can't remember which tournaments he's played). The only other players I can think of them throwing into the mix are Kozlov and Fritz.

The deadline to apply for wild cards is Monday, but wild cards can be announced at any time prior to the draw. In previous years, most of the qualifying and main draw singles wild cards were announced during the middle of Cinncinati.
