Who is playing the US Open in 2018?

The fourth and final Grand Slam of the year welcomes the best in men's and women's tennis to Flushing Meadows once more when the 2017 US Open begins on Monday August 27.

Rafael Nadal and Sloane Stephens return to the U.S. Open in 2018 to defend their titles, but they will face an enormous battle to go back-to-back in the Big Apple.

Nadal had endured a tough couple of injury-plagued seasons prior to 2017, but the Spanish sensation enjoyed a remarkable resurgence last season, combining with great rival Roger Federer as the pair collected all four slams. Nadal of course captured his third U.S. Open crown after Federer went down to 2009 champion Juan Martin del Potro in the quarter-finals, conquering surprise finalist Kevin Anderson in straight sets. The triumph capped a dominant season for Nadal as the 31-year-old finished the year as the oldest person in history to end a season as World No. 1.

The men’s 2017 U.S. Open was one of the most wide-open Grand Slams in recent memory as former champions and modern-day juggernauts Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic and Stan Wawrinka all missed the tournament through injury, while Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic were also sidelined, meaning that only six of the world’s top 11 competed in the tournament. As a result the draw opened up for some of tennis’s rising stars, with Andrey Rublev becoming the youngest man to reach the U.S. Open quarter-finals since Andy Roddick in 2001, while Denis Shapovalov was the youngest man to make the R16 since Michael Chang in 1989.

Pablo Carreno Busta and Kevin Anderson squared off for a place in the final, with the big-serving Anderson becoming the first South African man to make the U.S. Open singles final since 1965. However Anderson was ultimately no match for top seed Nadal, who had earlier overcome del Potro in the other semi-final, with the Spaniard registering a dominant straight sets victory to claim the silverware.

It will be interesting to see how Nadal and Federer back up their glorious 2017 seasons, especially so far into the season. Djokovic, Murray and Wawrinka all witnessed the pair’s incredible comebacks and will be inspired and determined to emulate their great rivals, while Nishikori and Raonic will also be eager to make up for lost time. Then we’ve got the players that stepped up and forced their way into the top 10 in their absence, with young German Alexander Zverev, homegrown hero Jack Sock, Austrian enforcer Dominic Thiem, 2014 champion Marin Cilic, last year’s semi-finalist Carreno Busta and reigning Nitto ATP Finals champion Grigor Dimitrov all out to prove that 2017 wasn’t a fluke season.

Meanwhile, the women’s 2017 U.S. Open was one of the most phenomenal Grand Slams in recent memory, with Sloane Stephens capping a fairytale return to tennis by securing her maiden major title in extraordinary circumstances. Stephens, a former top 15 player and Australian Open semi-finalist, was ranked outside the top 900 at the start of the American summer due to a lengthy spell on the sidelines with injury, but she produced stunning tennis over the fortnight in New York, crushing compatriot Madison Keys for the loss of just three games in the final. It was the first all-American women’s final at the U.S. Open since 2002, while Stephens became the second unseeded woman in the Open Era to win the U.S. Open following Kim Clijsters in 2009. It was also the first Grand Slam since Wimbledon in 1985 where all four semi-finalists were American, with Venus Williams and CoCo Vandeweghe also advancing into the final four.

Garbine Muguruza became the new World No. 1 at the end of the tournament despite losing in the R16 after 2016 finalist Karolina Pliskova failed to defend her points, but it was Simona Halep - who lost in the first round of the 2017 U.S. Open to Maria Sharapova in a blockbuster - who finished 2017 as the No. 1 player in the world. Halep continues on her quest for Grand Slam glory in 2017 and will determined to put the memories of her loss to Sharapova behind her, while a whole host of women will fancy their chances of capturing the silverware after Stephens and Jelena Ostapenko won majors in 2017, including Ostapenko herself, Caroline Wozniacki, Elina Svitolina, Caroline Garcia and Johanna Konta.

Also watch out for returning stars Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka, who are both scheduled to compete at the last Grand Slam of the season after missing the 2017 edition.

About the US Open

The US Open is the fourth and final Grand Slam of the year. Originally founded in 1881, the US Open is the modern version of one of the oldest tennis championships in the world - the US National Championship. It is also the only one of all of the Grand Slam tournaments that has been played every year since its inception. The major traditionally starts on the last Monday in August and lasts for two weeks until the early stages of September, with the middle weekend always coinciding with the Labor Day holiday.

It consequently means players have just over one month from the conclusion of the Wimbledon Championships to attune to the hard court conditions. In preparation the ATP and WTA Tours travel to Masters 1000 and Premier events in Montreal, Toronto and Cincinnati.

In 1984, the US Open introduced Super Saturday, with the women’s final scheduled on Saturday, in between the two men’s semi-finals. Super Saturday has remained ever since, with the men’s final then to be played the next day on the Sunday. However, between 2007 and 2012, the men’s final had to be postponed to the following Monday due to weather. Because of this the USTA intentionally scheduled the men’s final on Monday in 2013 and 2014 but this attracted criticism from the ATP for further deviating from the structure of all of the other three Grand Slams. The final is now rescheduled back on the second Sunday.

Pete Sampras, Jimmy Connors and Roger Federer are the only players in the Open Era to have won the title a record five times, while Federer remains the only active player to have achieved the feat, although Federer’s last title came back in 2008. Federer is also the only player to have won the title five times in a row (2004-2008) in the Open Era, while American Bill Tilden won the title six times in a row in the Amateur Era (1920-1925). On the women’s side, Chris Evert and Serena Williams hold the Open Era record with six titles each. Williams won three in a row between 2012-2014 before her agonising loss in the 2015 semi-finals. Of course Williams was the last American woman to win the title, while the last American men’s champion was Andy Roddick in 2003.

Stan Wawrinka is the defending men's champion, while Angelique Kerber will be attempting to retain her U.S. Open crown.

With the biggest stars in tennis all taking to the courts in New York from 28 August - 10 September, 2017, the competition for the 2017 US Open titles is not to be missed!
