The 2011 US Open was a tennis tournament played on the outdoor hard courts at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows Park, of Queens, New York City, United States. It began on 29 August and was originally scheduled to end on 11 September, but the men's final was postponed to 12 September due to rain.

Rafael Nadal and Kim Clijsters were the defending champions. Due to an abdominal muscle injury, Clijsters wasn't able to defend her title.

In the women's singles, Australia's Samantha Stosur defeated Serena Williams in straight sets 6–2, 6–3 for her first Grand Slam title. Stosur thus became the first Australian female player to win a Grand Slam since Evonne Goolagong Cawley in 1980.

In the men's singles, both Nadal and Novak Djokovic contested the final for the second consecutive year. This time, Djokovic won 6–2, 6–4, 6–7(3–7), 6–1 for his first ever US Open title.

Day 14 (11 September)

In remembrance of the September 11 attacks, the United States Tennis Association (USTA) and the US Open have, among other things, painted the digits "9/11/01" on Arthur Ashe Stadium two days in advance of Day 14's scheduled women's final.[31] The players at the US Open have also been given a white US Open cap with the digits "9/11/01" in black block figures on the side of the cap.[31] For the men's final originally scheduled for 11 September, the USTA had planned for the finalists to walk through a path lined by an honor guard of New York police officers, firefighters, and Port Authority police.[32] The USTA also had planned for the men's final a moment of silence, a military flyover, and the unfurling of a court-sized US flag at Arthur Ashe Stadium, and these events were remain as part of the women's final.[32] Cyndi Lauper contributed by singing the national anthem at the Williams–Wozniacki semifinal match on 10 September, and Queen Latifah did the same at the women's final, the Williams–Stosur match.[33]
