Iga Swiatek reaches first US Open final, will face fifth seed Ons Jabeur
Gilles Simon, Andy Roddick, and Lleyton Hewitt also in the draw.
It’s a good bet that the top seeds at the US Open will be seeded as they have been at previous majors.
A couple of first-round matches have been added to those that have already been played, as well as a second-round match.
The US Open will begin after Labor Day, with the tournament set to begin on August 31.
It’s the first time the US Open has been held on the second Saturday of September since 2000, and the second US-based major event to have a fourth-round match added to its schedule, following the Masters tournament at Augusta National in 1995.
The tournament also has three new matches added to the draw, bringing the total of such matches to 26.
A further two matches have been taken off the fourth-round of the previous year’s Australian Open, with the French Open now having three matches removed from the fourth round of 2004.
“I thought we got a great deal for the guys, but I know there’s a lot of people for us to thank as well for how it was,” said U.S. Open spokesman John Lutz, noting the support of fans during the week leading up to the event. “I think this tournament always gets a lot of positive response from fans. I hope it continues to.”
The added matches were added to the US Open as a result of the growing popularity of the tournament.
The women’s US Open, now taking place in North Carolina at the Charlotte Country Club, began playing its first ever match last week.
Other key events in the schedule include: the first round of the men’s and women’s Australian Open (both two weeklies, at the end of June), the men’s British Open (beginning June 28), the men’s and women’s French Opens, the men’s Swiss Open, the men’s and women’s Indian Wells, and the men
