Who is playing the US Open in 2017?

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 28 August. 

From the start, it was clear that while many of the biggest stars would be in action in New York, it would also be an unusual edition of the US Open with plenty of surprises - starting when second seed Andy Murray withdrew two days before the tournament began due to an ongoing hip injury, joining defending champion Stan Wawrinka, 2014 runner-up Kei Nishikori, Milos Raonic and Novak Djokovic, who has featured in the US Open men's singles final for six of the past seven years, on the list of notable absentees, alongside six-time champion Serena Williams and two-time runner-up Victoria Azarenka, both of whom are absent for family reasons. 

That created two big questions for the men's draw: Would we finally see Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal clash at the US Open, with the two best players of 2017 so far on a collision course to meet in the semifinals? And who would take advantage in the bottom half of the men's draw to make the US Open final?

Despite various shocks in the first week of the US Open, Federer and Nadal remained on course for a semifinal clash - but neither looked their fearsome best. Nadal reclaimed the no. 1 ranking a few weeks ago after his own resurgent season saw him finish runner-up in Melbourne and Miami and dominate the clay season, culminating in a tenth French Open crown. US Open champion in 2013, Nadal hasn't won a title on hard courts since January 2014 and he dropped sets to Taro Daniel and to lucky loser Leonardo Mayer on his way to the fourth round - but delivered beatdown victories over Alexandr Dolgopolov and Russian youngster Andrey Rublev to make the semifinals.

Seeded third at this year's US Open, Federer once ruled supreme in New York, winning five consecutive titles from 2004-8, and has been the best player of the season so far, making a spectacular resurgence from knee surgery and a truncated 2016 surgery to win the Australian Open and Wimbledon as well as back-to-back Masters 1000 Series titles on American hard courts at Indian Wells and Miami. Federer 'tweaked' his back in the run-up, though, costing him his chance to be one of the top two seeds, and the impact it has had on his preparation has been clear as he was taken to five sets, first by young American Frances Tiafoe and then by Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny, in the first two rounds. Federer looked much better as he turned in a polished performance against Feliciano Lopez in the third round, recording his first straight-sets victory, and then preserved his perfect record against Philipp Kohlschreiber in the round of 16 despite an off-court medical timeout to set up a brilliant promising quarterfinal with Juan Martin del Potro, a rematch of their classic five-set US Open final in 2009.

Del Potro, who missed effectively two years of competition thanks to multiple wrist surgeries needed to correct tendonitis in his left wrist in 2014-15 and made a spectacular comeback in 2016, has had a poor and interrupted season but New York - and the New York crowds - had once more brought the best out of him, and he won the men's match of the tournament in the fourth round when, flu-ridden and barely able to move for the first two sets against Dominic Thiem, he pulled off a huge comeback to electrify Grandstand with a win in five sets. One of the early players who can legitimately divide a crowd's allegiances when playing Federer, he rose to the occasion with his huge forehand firing to beat an erratic, error-prone Federer in four sets to make his first Grand Slam final since Wimbledon 2013.

When Nadal and del Potro met, the del Potro forehand fired as it never had before in this tournament to take the first set for the Argentine - but it was all Nadal from there, as the 2010 and 2013 champion slowly turned the match his way, ultimately recording a dominant 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 6-2 victory to see Nadal into his fourth US Open final

With some men we expected to be contenders bowing out of the bottom half of the draw, the question has become who can make their first Grand Slam final? Only one of the four quarterfinalists has made a Grand Slam semifinal before - the USA's Sam Querrey, a semifinalist at Wimbledon a few months ago, who stayed strong through early rounds before turning up the heat and turning in a sizzling performance to trounce Mischa Zverev, who had beaten John Isner, in the round of 16. 

Querrey's run was ended by big Kevin Anderson, the six-foot-ten South African who is one of the consummate workhorses of the ATP World Tour and who has patiently worked his way back from injury which struck him down a couple of years ago just when he'd finally cracked the top 10. Anderson ended the run of Borna Coric, who had beaten fourth seed Alexander Zverev earlier in the tournament, and that of veteran Paolo Lorenzi to put himself in an intriguing position to make the semifinals of a Grand Slam for the very first time - something he achieved when he beat Querrey in four excruciatingly tight sets.

Anderson met Pablo Carreno Busta, perhaps the least talked-about seed in the draw, in the semifinals; the 12th seed, for so long living in the shadows of the celebrated 'Armada' golden generation above him, has improved immensely over the past 12 months as he showed when he outsteadied teenage Canadian sensation Denis Shapovalov to make the quarterfinals and then ended the giant-killing run of tenacious Diego Schwartzman. Carreno Busta looked nerveless initially in his first Grand Slam semifinal, making only one unforced error to take the first set 6-4, then breaking back immediately when Anderson finally managed to break his serve in the middle of the second set. But Anderson's big inside-out forehand started to fire and he gradually turned the match in his favour, sealing a place in the first Grand Slam final of his career with a 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 victory. 

 Men's final: Rafael Nadal vs Kevin Anderson, 4pm local/9pm BST on Sunday

On the women's side, a wide-open US Open has resulted in the first all-American women's final at the US Open since 2002, and the first not featuring either of the Williams sisters since 1984, when Martina Navratilova faced Chris Evert.

Madison Keys, the 22-year-old who has been anointed as the future of American tennis since she made her first Grand Slam semifinal at the Australian Open in 2015 and was the first American woman since Serena Williams, to crack the top 10 has emerged victorious from the top half of the draw to make her first Slam final. With defending champion Angelique Kerber losing in the first round to explosive young Japanese player Naomi Osaka, while eighth seed and former champion Svetlana Kuznetsova struggled with a wrist injury and went out to Kurumi Nara in the second round, all eyes were on world no. 1 Karolina Pliskova - one of eight women who could have take the top spot a fortnight after the tournament began - who made the final in 2016 by beating both Williams sisters.

But Pliskova didn't play well, and two Americans quickly emerged as the leading lights of the top half of the draw. Keys had suffered a tortuous season as she underwent two wrist surgeries, but had reunited with former coach Lindsay Davenport and, finally fit, exploded into form on American hard courts, winning the Premier-level Bank of the West Classic in Stanford and reaching the third round in Cincinnati. She brought that form to New York, breezing through the first two rounds in straight sets before overcoming two tough opponents in late-night, three-set battles on Arthur Ashe - Indian Wells champion Elena Vesnina in a match that finished at 1.48am, and then ousting fourth seed Elina Svitolina to set up a quarterfinal clash with Kaia Kanepi. Kanepi, a qualifier who is on the comeback trail after her own injury struggles, had beaten Osaka and Daria Kasatkina, who defeated French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko, to make the sixth Grand Slam quarterfinal of her career, but she was no match for Keys who won 6-3, 6-3 to set up a semifinal clash with CoCo Vandeweghe.

Vandeweghe, the Australian Open semifinalist and Wimbledon quarterfinalist now coached by Pat Cash and enjoying the best season of her career, had battled past fellow American Alison Riske, 10th seed Agnieszka Radwanska and 2015 French Open runner-up Lucie Safarova before ending the run of Pliskova in the quarterfinals with a 7-6(4), 6-3 victory - ensuring Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza would be ranked no. 1 when the new rankings are issued - but she was no match for Keys in the semifinal. The younger American, in a rematch of the Stanford final, crushed Vandeweghe 6-1, 6-2 to make her first Grand Slam final.

Sloane Stephens came into the US Open having made an improbable comeback on American hard courts, just like Keys - but even more dramatic. Stephens, who made her initial breakthrough when she made the semifinals of the Australian Open as a teenager in 2013, hadn't played for 11 months due to a foot injury and only started hitting balls in May - but in her second tournament back in Washington, D.C., she pushed world no. 2 Simona Halep to three sets. She made back-to-back semifinals in Toronto and Cincinnati, beating four top-15 players, and then beat 2015 runner-up Roberta Vinci and 11th seed Dominika Cibulkova in the first two rounds.

Meanwhile, all eyes were on wildcard Maria Sharapova, the 2006 champion who ousted world no. 2 Simona Halep in the first round in a brilliant display. While some other seeds, including two-time runner-up Caroline Wozniacki and Wimbledon semifinalist Johanna Konta, fell to shock defeats, there was no shortage of star power. Wimbledon champion Muguruza was dazzling and brutal through the first four rounds, only to be brought up short by Petra Kvitova - the two-time Wimbledon champion making her own incredible resurgence from career-threatening knife injuries to her playing hand - in the round of 16. Then Kvitova in turn fell to Venus Williams, the two-time US Open champion who is the only woman to have made multiple Grand Slam finals in 2017, in a brilliant quarterfinal.

Stephens edged Anastasija Sevastova, the woman who ended Sharapova's comeback run with a brilliant display of craft and guile to make back-to-back US Open quarterfinals, in another last-eight clash that ended in a third-set tie break, then scored a surprise win over Williams in the semifinals, 6-1, 0-6, 7-5 to reach her first Grand Slam final and set up an intriguing clash with Keys. The US Open is guaranteed to crown a new women's champion - will it be Keys or Stephens who earns the title as well as the distinction of being the post-Williams future of American tennis?

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!
