The last tennis major tournament of 2022, the US Open, is down to its final singles match. After Iga Swiatek took the women's singles trophy Saturday, the two top men face off to determine not only the US Open championship but the No. 1 rank in the ATP. Spain's Carlos Alcaraz is the favorite going in against Casper Ruud, having defeated the Norwegian both times they've played. The 19-year old Alcaraz won three five-set matches in succession heading into today's tilt while Ruud should be a bit more rested, with only one his matches in the tournament going five sets. The US Open men's final is scheduled to begin today at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT) on ESPN.
