ach of the ATP’s Top 103 men has entered the New York singles event, led by world No. 1 Novak Djokovic. The Serb’s quest for the calendar-year Grand Slam – and, potentially, the Golden Slam – will be one of the major storylines at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Rafael Nadal, No. 3, and Roger Federer, No. 9, will also be vying for history, as the Big Three enter New York with a combined total of 20 Grand Slam men’s singles titles, with singular status on the line if one of them wins the US Open.

The women’s singles field features 15 Grand Slam singles champions.

Seven of those major champions are currently ranked in the WTA’s Top 10. Ashleigh Barty, the world No. 1, who recently won her second major title at Wimbledon, heads the entry list ahead of world No. 2 Naomi Osaka, a four-time Slam champion; 2020 Australian Open champion and world No. 4 Sofia Kenin; 2019 US Open champion Bianca Andreescu, the world No. 5; 2020 French Open champion and world No. 8 Iga Swiatek; and a pair of former world No. 1s and two-time Slam champions in the.

The US Open main-draw entry list was determined using the July 19 edition of the world rankings. The seeds for the event will be determined and announced closer to the event’s start.
