US Open 2023: Schedule, scores, results, how to watch, seeds for Grand Slam tournament at Flushing Meadows

0 3

The 2023 US Open has begun in Flushing Meadows, NY, with the final Grand Slam of the year featuring a $65 million player compensation pool — the biggest ever for the tournament. While last year’s winners compete, no one is invincible as Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Świątek recently found out at the Cincinnati Masters.

Last year, Alcaraz became the first male player born in the 2000s to win the tournament after defeating Casper Ruud in four sets in the final. Earlier this year, the Spanish star took home the Wimbledon title by defeating four-time defending champion Novak Djokovic.

Alcaraz and Djokovic have gone head-to-head and traded the world No. 1 title this season. The Serbian veteran emerged victorious in their last meeting as he took home the Cincinnati Open trophy.

All eyes are on them as the top two favorites in New York with a potential meeting in the final, but world No. 3 Daniil Medvedev is not too far behind. The 2021 champion is looking to redeem himself after falling to Nick Kyrgios at last year’s tournament in the last 16.

Holger Rune of Denmark became the highest seed ever in the US Open at No. 4, but was upset in the first round by Roberto Carballés Baena.

Another player that tennis fans – especially the American ones – will be keeping an eye on is Chris Eubanks, who has been seeded for the first time in his career. He made a name for himself earlier this year thanks to a deep run at Wimbledon. In a recent interview with CBS Mornings, the American star said he was taking it “one game at a time”. There is also another American Frances Tiafoe, who made the semi-finals last year and enters this year’s tournament as the number 10 seed.

American Coco Gauff is making noise on the women’s side. The 19-year-old stunned Świątek, the world No. 1, in the semifinals of the Cincinnati Open and won it all, which marked her second title in a month. Gauff lost to Caroline Garcia in the quarter-finals of the US Open last year, but she will be aiming to go much further this time around. As the bracket is set up, Gauff and Świątek could meet in the quarterfinals.

No. 2 seed Aryna Sabalenka will be a formidable opponent for anyone who faces her as she has reached the semifinals in New York two years in a row. It was a tough year for Sabalenka as she reached the semi-finals at the French Open and Wimbledon this year, and walked away with the Australian Open trophy.

Meanwhile, No. 5 seed Ons Jabeur showed just how tough a first-round competitor is by beating Camila Osorio 7-5, 7-6 (7-4) despite struggling with her ‘ flu. Jabeur said after the game that breathing was a struggle because she has a history of asthma.

Notable absences on the men’s side include 22-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal and 2022 Wimbledon finalist Nick Kyrgios as their injury problems continue. Meanwhile, 2021 US Open winner Emma Raducanu will not be competing in the women’s tournament after undergoing wrist surgery earlier this year.
