FLUSHING, N.Y. — With all due respect to the U.S. Open, set to begin on Aug. 26, the biggest event to hit the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in 2019 may have already come and gone.

The first-ever Fortnite World Cup, which took place from July 26-28, set the bar pretty high, with the finals of the game’s popular Battle Royale mode selling out Arthur Ashe Stadium and attracting viewership numbers of around 2.3 million.
