The 2023 US Open live streams are serving up a ton of tennis action straight from Flushing Meadows, New York City. The women's final is set between Coco Gauff and Aryna Sabalenka, while the men duke it out in the semifinals.

You won't want to miss a second of the tournament and, thankfully, you won't have to, because the big games will air for free on Australia's 9Now service. And don't worry if you're away — because you can watch 2023 US Open live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

Another epic finals battle between Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic may be in the cards, as the top two men's seeds have sailed through the rounds. Their five-setter in the Wimbledon final instantly became an all-time classic, while their recent duel in Cincinnati was a three-set showdown. 

Of course, No. 3 seed Daniil Medvedev and American Ben Shelton won't make it easy for them, as both will give everything they have in their semifinals. 

On the women's side, Gauff vs Sabalenka should be an epic match between two powerhouse hitters. 

You can follow it all by watching a US Open live stream and we'll show you how to do that below.

How to watch the 2023 US Open live streams from anywhere with a VPN

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

For instance, an Australian who's currently in the U.S. could watch the US Open live streams on 9Now, even though they're not in Australia. 

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. 


Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 9Now and watch the tennis.

Tennis fans in the U.S. will need ESPN to watch U.S. Open live streams. The cable brand will have extensive coverage from Flushing Meadows on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.

ESPN is available through most cable packages as well as some of the best cable TV alternatives, including Sling TV, Fubo, YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV.  

Our pick of these would be Sling TV. The Sling Orange package starts at just $40 per month and comes with more than 30 channels including ESPN. 

Fubo, meanwhile, costs $75 per month for 121 channels and includes ESPN. It offers a 7-day free trial.

And remember, if you're usually based in the U.S. but aren't there at the moment, you can still watch the services you already subscribe to via a VPN such as ExpressVPN.


Sling TV offers two packages, both of which start at $40 a month (or less with a Sling TV promo code). The Sling Orange option comes with 30-plus channels, including ESPN. 


If you love sports, you might want to check out Fubo. It's got dozens of sports channels, including ESPN and the Tennis Channel, and offers a 7-day free trial. You can also save on fees with our FuboTV promo codes.
