Flushing Meadows, New York, USA.
Monday 31st August 2020 - Sunday 13th September 2020.
How to watch the US Open?
The women's draw has been even more affected compared to the men's side with the defending champion Bianca Andreescu pulling out as well as fellow top ten players Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep, Elina Svitolina, Kiki Bertens and Belinda Bencic.
Still looking to match Margaret Court's record of 24 grand slams; however, she has not won a slam since 2017 and 2014 was the last time she won in New York. She has struggled in slam finals during the previous few years having now lost four in a row with all of them being two-set losses.
She won her first slam here back in 2018 and will enter this tournament as one of the favourites. Her strong serve and groundstrokes will make her a contender at every slam, but she has struggled with consistency since her win two years ago.
The US Open has been Kvitova's poorest slam as she has only ever made the quarter-finals. A depleted field will undoubtedly give her added optimism to go all the way, and if she finds form for two weeks, very few can stop her. Inconsistency has been an issue throughout her career, but she's more than capable of adding another grand slam to her two Wimbledon wins.
Pliskova is still looking for her first grand slam win, and the US Open is arguably her best chance considering the withdrawals and that it's her strongest slam as she was the runner-up here in 2016. She's widely considered the best player never to win a slam, and she'll want to lose that tag sooner rather than later.
At 32, she may not be on the tour for much longer and has dropped outside of the top 10 in recent years. She is a three-time slam champion with one of them being the US Open in 2016 in which she defeated Pliskova in three sets. She certainly has what it takes to still win a slam and will be someone the top seeds want to avoid.
Clijsters made a surprise announcement to signal her return to tennis after almost seven years away. At 37, it's difficult to see her winning this time around and replicating her previous comeback in 2009, but she could prove a stern test for the seeds in the early rounds.
Kenin announced herself to the tennis world with a shock Australian Open win earlier this year and now finds herself at number four in the world. A US Open triumph won't come as such a surprise, and she'll have to deal with the added expectation from now. Can she cap off an excellent year with a title here?
