The draw for the 2023 US Open has been confirmed, with a number of tasty First Round ties on the cards at Flushing Meadows.

The 143rd edition of the US Open and the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year will be held on outdoor hard courts at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York.

The tournament takes place from August 28 to September 10 and will feature 128 players competing in the men’s and women’s singles draws competing for total prize money of $65 million, an 8% increase on last year.

Top seed Carlos Alcaraz claimed glory for the first time here in 2022 and will begin the defence of his title with a tie against Dominik Koepfer.

Alcaraz is situated in the same quarter of the draw as Great Britain’s Cameron Norrie and could also face Jannik Sinner in the Quarter-Finals.

World number one Iga Swiatek is the defending women’s champion and will open up against Sweden’s Rebecca Peterson.

Three-time champion Novak Djokovic, who picked up the Western & Southern Open title in Cincinnati last week and is back at Flushing Meadows for the first time since 2021, starts out against Alexandre Muller.

Third seed Daniil Medvedev joins Alcaraz in the top half, while fourth seed Holger Rune and former finalist Casper Ruud share a section in the bottom half.

Other notable ties include 2012 champion Andy Murray versus Corentin Moutet, Andrey Rublev against Emil Ruusuvuori, Stefanos Tsitsipas taking on Milos Raonic and Alexander Bublik against Dominic Thiem.

Second seed Aryna Sabalenka faces Maryna Zanevska in the women’s draw, while third seed and home favourite Jessica Pegula plays Camila Giorgi.

Former finalist Caroline Wozniacki could face Jennifer Brady in Round Two, with both having drawn qualifiers, while Ons Jabeur meets Camila Osorio.

Paula Badosa opens up against two-time champion Venus Williams, while other top ties include Sloane Stephens vs Beatriz Haddad Maia and Ekaterina Alexandrova vs Leylah Fernandez.
