The U.S. Open is airing for FREE in some countries. But don't worry if you're on holiday while it's on because you can watch Fritz vs Djokovic live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

After being pushed to five sets by fellow Serb Laslo Djere, Djokovic wasted no time in dispatching Croatian qualifier Borna Gojo in his last 16 clash. The 36-year-old produced just 12 unforced errors in the whole match and showcased his incredible ability to turn defence into attack against the big-hitter.

Chasing a fourth U.S Open title and 10th final at Flushing Meadows, Djokovic now faces a real test as Fritz has been imperious throughout the first week of the tournament. The American has yet to drop a set in New York and is aiming to reach the semi-finals of a Grand Slam for the first time in his career. 

The 25-year-old will hope to dictate play behind his huge serve and carve out chances when returning through his flat and powerful groundstrokes. Cheered on by a home crowd, Fritz will be determined to make a fast start as he has a poor record against Djokovic. The Serb has won all seven of their previous encounters, losing just one set in the process.

Will Fritz be able to cause an upset? Or will Djokovic, who will return to world number one once the tournament ends, continue his march towards a 36th Grand Slam final?

Make sure you catch all the action at the 2023 U.S. Open action by tuning into a Fritz vs Djokovic live stream. Scroll down for details.

How to watch the Fritz vs Djokovic 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 Fritz vs Djokovic 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.

Tennis fans in the U.S. will need ESPN Plus to watch Fritz vs Djokovic live streams.

The streaming service is showing the bulk of the action from Flushing Meadows, though some matches will also be shown 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.


ESPN Plus costs $9.99 per month for the basic package or you can save over 15% by signing up for a year for $99.99. That also brings access to the Basketball World Cup, boxing, MLB, NHL, golf, lacrosse and even UFC if you're happy to add the occasional PPV fee.


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 Fubo promo codes.

British tennis lovers can watch Fritz vs Djokovic and all of the action from the 2023 US Open on Sky Sports and via the Sky Go app.

If you already have a Sky subscription that doesn't include Sports, you'll need to pay £18/month to add those channels.

Whatever package you go for, you'll also gain access to coverage in 4K and HDR, so long as you also have an HDR-ready Sky Q box and HLG-compatible TV.

Sky Glass is another option. This gives you Sky TV within a 4K TV that has a built-in Dolby Atmos soundbar, and without the need for a dish. Prices start at £14/month for the TV, plus a sky sub on top of that.

If you don't want to shell out for a full Sky subscription, you could also consider its Now Sports streaming service. This gives you 24-hour access for £11.98 or month-long access for £34.99.

Aussies can watch the 2023 US Open live streams on Channel Nine, and even if the big matches like Fritz vs Djokovic don't air on TV, you'll be able to live stream them on the on-demand service 9Now.

However, 9Now won't have every single match — so to watch it all, ad-free and in up to 4K resolution, you'll need a subscription to Stan Sport.

Stan costs from $10 AUD per month and new users get a 30-day FREE trial. You'll also need the Sport add-on, which costs $15 per month.
