US Open 2021 Seeds & Results
Seedings for the 2021 US Open will be determined by the official ATP and WTA rankings released on Monday 23 August, a week before the tournament begins.
US Open 2021 players
As one of tennis’s four biggest tournaments, offering 2,000 ranking points and prize money of $3,850,000 to each of the men’s and women’s singles champions, the US Open is usually guaranteed to attract the biggest stars in the game.
After the slightly denuded list for the closed-doors 2020 edition, with Roger Federer, Ashleigh Barty, Rafael Nadal and Simona Halep among those opting not to attend due to the global pandemic, the sport’s biggest stars are all set to return to New York in 2021 to compete for the US Open trophies.
Here’s the lowdown on some of the biggest names.
Austria’s Thiem earned the title of ‘Prince of Clay’ when he reached consecutive French Open finals in 2018-19, and cemented his status as the likeliest player to break the Big Three’s stranglehold over men’s Grand Slam titles when he pushed Djokovic to five sets in the Australian Open final in January 2020.
Consequently, when a new Grand Slam champion was guaranteed by Djokovic’s exit from the US Open, it came as no surprise that it was Thiem who rose to the occasion, defeating 2019 finalist Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals and Alexander Zverev in a five-set final which ended in a decisive tie-break and will not soon be forgotten.
Thiem returns to the US Open was the defending champion in 2021 – will he be able to keep his grip on the trophy?
Two years after winning her debut Grand Slam title at the US Open in dramatic style, Naomi Osaka reclaimed the trophy in New York as she put together a spellbinding three-week run despite the truncated season and unusual conditions.
After finishing runner-up to a resurgent Victoria Azarenka at the Western & Southern Open (relocated from Cincinnati to New York for one year only), Osaka beat Anett Kontaveit and Jennifer Brady to set up a US Open final rematch with Azarenka.
Osaka’s 1-6, 6-3, 6-3 comeback win over the former world no. 1 earned the Japanese-Haitian player a third Grand Slam title and she will be among the top favourites when she returns to the US Open as defending champion in 2021.
A three-time U.S. Open champion, Djokovic remains in a three-way tussle with Nadal and Federer for the most Grand Slam titles in history, but has been unable to close the gap in New York in recent years. Forced to withdraw from the 2019 tournament due to injury, Djokovic suffered a shock default in 2020 after accidentally striking a linesperson with a ball hit, in anger, out of play.
Djokovic has made an art of resilience, however, so we should count on the Serb to return to the US Open even more determined to recapture the title in 2020 and with a 75-12 record in New York, he is sure to be one of the biggest favourites once again.
Six-time US Open champion Serena Williams is still looking for her first major win since returning from maternity leave – but with four Grand Slam finals reached throughout 2018 and 2019, surely she is closing in.
Williams’s quest for a 24th major title will have to wait until 2021 after the legendary American was denied by resurgent rival Azarenka in the semifinals of the 2020 US Open. But Williams will be back in 2021 – and there would be no better place for her to finally tie Margaret Court’s all-time Grand Slam record than New York, with her home crowd back to cheer her on.
Nadal made the difficult decision not to defend his US Open title in 2020 due to the global health crisis – but while it will have been painful, the decision paid off in spades as Nadal won a 13th French Open title to tie Federer’s all-time record of 20 major titles.
This means that by the time Nadal returns to the US Open in 2021, he could have overtaken Federer – and will be on a six-match winning streak in New York after having beaten Daniil Medvedev to win his fourth title on his last appearance.
Like Nadal, Andreescu did not defend her US Open title in 2020 – in fact, we did not see the Canadian sensation, who exploded on to the scene in 2019 as she won Indian Wells, the Rogers Cup and the US Open beating Serena Williams in the final, at all last year as injury and the pandemic combined to keep her off the court.
Andreescu returns to competition in 2021, however, and remains one of the most sensationally watchable players in the game. Will the Canadian who fought off all comers as a teenager reclaim the US Open title in 2021?
When is the 2021 US Open?
Main-draw play at the 2021 US Open begins on Monday August 30 with first-round men’s and women’s singles matches and concludes on Sunday 12 September with the men’s singles final.
About the US Open
The US Open is the last of four Grand Slams on the tennis calendar, starting on the last Monday in August, and running for two weeks. The tournament is one of two majors staged on hard courts, the other being the Australian Open, while the other two are played on clay (Roland Garros) and grass courts (Wimbledon).
Staged at the magnificent USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre, the US Open boasts arguably the most electric atmosphere of the four majors, and it’s renowned for its game-changing innovations and lead role in moving the sport forward. The US Open became the first major to award equal prize money to men and women in 1973, while it was also the first to employ floodlights to enable night-time play. Amongst other distinct features of the tournament, it was the first to use tie breaks to decide sets; and till this day, remains the only major to employ breakers in deciding sets. The US Open is also the only Slam that has been staged every year since its inception in 1881 – a record it maintained in 2020 despite the challenges of an unprecedented global pandemic, with a streamlined event played behind closed doors and adhering to strict safety protocols.
William Larned, Richard Sears and Bill Tilden lead the all-time list of US Open champions with seven titles, while Roger Federer is among three players who share the Open Era record of five titles. Novak Djokovic has won three US Opens, while Rafael Nadal has won four but did not defend his title in 2020 due to the global health crisis. Nadal, Djokovic and Federer are all expected to return to New York for the 2021 US Open.
US Open History
The US Open started off as a grass-court tournament in Newport, Rhode Island in August 1881, with American, Richard Sears winning the inaugural edition (he won the first seven editions!). Then known as the US National Singles Championships for Men, the tournament employed a challenge system between 1884 and 1911, with the reigning champion qualifying directly for the final, where he will take on the winner from an All-Comers tournament in a challenge round. A women’s national championships – the US Women’s National Singles Championship – began at the Philadelphia Cricket Club in 1887, with 17-year-old Ellen Hansell claiming the first title. The women’s championship initially adopted the same format as the men’s, with the All-Comers champion facing the defending champion in a challenge round.
The challenge format was stopped in 1912 for the men’s championship, and in 1919 for the women’s.
Following protests by a select group of players, who argued that the US National Championships should be moved to New York because most clubs, players and fans were based in the New York City area, the tournament moved from Newport to New York in 1915, where it was staged at the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills. There was a brief period between 1921 and 1923 when the championships were held at the Germantown Cricket Club to allow for construction works at the new Forest Hills Stadium. Upon completion of the 14000-seater stadium, the US National Championships relocated again in 1924- the same year it was recognized as a major tournament by the International Lawn Tennis Federation, ILTF.
Like the other majors, the US Championships became open to professional players in 1968, as the Open Era began. Still staged at Forest Hills, 96 men and 63 women competed for an overall prize money of $100,000. Interestingly, men’s champion Arthur Ashe was still registered as an amateur back then, hence was not eligible for the $14000 winner’s prize, which was instead awarded to finalist Tom Okker! The US Open became the first major to award equal prize money to men and women, with John Newcombe and Margaret Court both receiving $25000 for being champions in 1973.
The tournament also became the first major to use tie breaks to decide sets in 1970, and till today, remains the only Grand Slam to employ a final-set tie break. The US Open, in 1975, pioneered the use of floodlights for night-time play, while in 2006, it became the first Grand Slam to employ the Hawk-Eye technology to challenge debatable line calls.
The US Open eventually switched from Forest Hills to its current location- the USTA National Tennis Centre at Flushing Meadows in 1978. The two centres aren’t too far from each other, with only three miles separating them. The current venue was renamed the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Centre in 2006, in honour of four-time champion, Billie Jean King. The Centre holds a total of 22 courts, including the magnificent 22,547-seater main show court, the Arthur Ashe Stadium.
Through the years, the US Open has been staged on three different surfaces- grass, clay and hard courts. It was held on grass between 1881 and 1974, while it was played on clay in the final three years at Forest Hills between 1975 and 1977. With the switch to the US National Tennis Centre in 1978, the final Grand Slam of the year moved to hard courts. The US Open courts were initially coloured green, but from 2005, the courts adopted blue colour to aid television viewing. Jimmy Connors is the only man to have won the men’s singles title on all three surfaces, while Chris Evert was women’s champion on clay and hard courts. No woman won the title on grass, clay and hard courts.
Richard Sears, Bill Larned, and Bill Tilden hold the record for the most successful US Open campaigners, with their seven titles, all of which were won before the Open Era, while Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors share the Open Era record at 5 titles.
The most successful woman in the tournament’s history is eight-time champion, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory; Helen Wills Moody has seven titles, while Serena Williams and Chris Evert have the Open Era record at six.
What is the US Open Series?
The US Open series is a five-week series of tournaments on North American hard courts, which culminates at the US Open in New York.
First started in 2004 so as to enhance television coverage of tennis in the United States, the Series has gone on to crown many great champions, including Serena Williams and Roger Federer. Along with the US Open, the US Open series currently includes tournaments in Atlanta, Montreal/Toronto, Cincinnati and Winston-Salem for the men, while the women battle for US Open Series points in San Jose, Montreal/Toronto, Cincinnati and New Haven.
Points are awarded to players depending on how far they go in these tournaments, with the top three points scorers in each tour earning extra prize money in the US Open Series Bonus Challenge. The amount earned is dependent on their eventual performance at the US Open. Players who win both the US Open Series and the US Open are entitled to the maximum amount of prize money, which has been increasing through the years. (The 2017 US Open series did not include a Bonus Challenge).
Kim Clijsters became the first player to win both the US Open and the US Open Series back in 2005, earning a cumulative $2.2million, which at the time, was the biggest payout in women’s sports, while Roger Federer, in 2007, was the first man to win the Series and the US Open in the same year, earning $2.4million for his efforts – including a $1million bonus for winning the US Open series. With the overall prize money constantly increasing, those figures have since been usurped by Serena Williams, who carted away $4million dollars in 2014 in what was the largest payout in tennis history, male or female, before Ashleigh Barty’s victory at the 2019 WTA Finals Shenzhen.
Who are the greatest US Open champions?
American Richard Sears was the first true great of the US Open, winning the first seven editions of the tournament. Sears handed the baton to William Larned, who dominated the US Championships in the early twentieth century, winning his own seven titles between 1901 and 1911, non-consecutively of course. The only other man to possess seven titles is Bill Tilden, who dominated the event in the 1920s. He won six straight titles between 1920 and 1925; and added one more in 1929.
Each of Sears, Larned and Tilden won the tournament at least five consecutive times, a feat only matched by Roger Federer in the Open Era. Federer won his five US Open titles in a row, dominating the final Grand Slam of the year between 2004 and 2008. He looked set to make it six in a row when he led Juan Martin del Potro by two sets to one in the 2009 final, but the big Argentine with the mighty forehand fought back impressively to create a massive Grand Slam upset at Flushing Meadows.
Federer’s five consecutive titles is an Open Era record, but the great Swiss isn’t the only man with five titles- Pete Sampras, who won his titles between 1999 and 2002, and Jimmy Connors also have five. John McEnroe has four, a mark he shares with compatriot, and pre-1990’s champion, Robert Wrenn, while four-time winner Rafael Nadal and three-time champions Ivan Lendl and Novak Djokovic are the only other men in the Open Era with more than two titles.
There are a host of players on two US Open titles, including Rod Laver, Ken Rosewall, Patrick Rafter, John Newcombe, Rene Lacoste, Andre Agassi, Roy Emerson and Stefan Edberg.
In the women’s field, Molla Bjurstedt Mallory leads the way with eight titles, while Helen Wills Moody is one behind in second place. Unsurprisingly, Serena Williams is atop the Open Era list with her six US Open titles, a record she shares with Chris Evert. Steffi Graff and Margaret Court have five titles each, (two of Court’s successes came before the Open Era), while Billie Jean King and Martina Navratilova are among those on four titles. Evert is the only woman in the Open Era to have won four straight crowns- a feat she achieved between 1975 and 1978.
Special mentions also go to modern-day greats Venus Williams, Kim Clijsters, Justin Henin and Monica Seles, all of whom are two-time US Open champions. Naomi Osaka won her second US Open title in 2020.
