Watches at the US Open Tennis 2022 – The championship started on the last Monday of August and continues until 11 September 2022. It is the 142nd consecutive edition of the tournament, held in New York. In this blog post, I will dedicate my time to identifying watches spotted during the event, just as I did during Wimbledon 2022.
So, keep reading the blog post to discover the watches

I mean, the watch is said to be able to withstand shocks and is very comfortable to wear because it only weighs 30 g (including the strap). Also, I need to mention that Nadal is the pioneer in wearing a watch during a tennis match.
