US Open 2022: Full schedule, seedings, prize money and latest odds

G

rand Slam tennis returns for the final time in 2022 as the US Open gets underway at Flushing Meadows.

This time a year ago, Emma Raducanu was storming first through qualifying and then then main draw, as she went all the way in New York without dropping a single set in truly remarkable fashion.

Consistency has been an issue since then but the 19-year-old has showed signs of returning to her fearless best and returns to the scene of her greatest triumph as the 11th seed.

One of those impressive recent wins was against Serena Williams, who is set to bring down the curtain on her tennis career at the end of the tournament. The 24-time Grand Slam champion faces Danka Kovinic in the first round.

Novak Djokovic will not be competing in New York, unable to travel due to his vaccination status and as it stands he will have to wait until the French Open in May to add to his major tally.

Daniil Medvedev, who did not appear at Wimbledon due to a ban on Russian players, is the top seed in Djokovic’s absence and he is well-fancied to defend his title.

There is plenty of interest for British fans, with Cameron Norrie the seventh seed and Andy Murray confident of making a run should he be able to overcome his issues with cramp.

Dates and venue

The US Open starts on Monday, August 29, 2022, and runs for 14 straight days until Sunday, September 11.

As ever, it is being played at Flushing Meadows in New York.
