No, Emirates will get to title sponsor a series of preliminary match events throughout the season leading up to the U.S. Open
At the open expect to see Emirates signage, and probably a display, and some PR blitzing while at the matches. I imagine their sponsorship is still ultimately second to Mercedes-Benz, which is the powerhouse sponsor of the U.S. Open.
Kind of a big deal since they replace United, who had a rather large presence out there last year.
edit - replaced "week" with "year"
