First Quarter: Swiatek, Anisimova, Pegula Highlight Draw
Swiatek, quite rightly, is the favorite to win the US Open, based on her form and overall record this season. There was even a stretch between February and June during which she was virtually unbeatable.
That’s not the case right now. Swiatek has suffered several losses since her French Open triumph in June. Recently, she was an early casualty in both Toronto and Montreal and that has raised some questions about her fitness, Add to that a tough draw at Flushing Meadows and, let’s just say, she won’t have an easy time of it.

Swiatek’s section features former US Open champions, Grand Slam champions, heavyweights and American rising stars. For instance, in the second round, she could take on 2017 US Open champion Sloane Stephens. American Amanda Anisimova could set up a possible fourth-round encounter. Alternatively, Jelena Ostapenko, Sofia Kenin and outsider Julie Niemeier could emerge in the Round of 16 instead.
Looking ahead to the quarterfinals, the potential matchups here could feature two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, two-time grand slam champion Garbine Muguruza or American Jessica Pegula.
Second Quarter: Wide Open with Badosa, Osaka, Raducanu
Arguably, the second quarter is the most unpredictable with a slew of contenders packed into the section. Spain’s Paula Badosa and Belarusia’s Aryna Sabalenka are the top two seeds in this section, but reigning US Open champion Emma Raducanu and former US Open finalist Karolina Pliskova are just some of the players that could navigate a course into the quarterfinals.
Other threats in this section include two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka, four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka, who won this event twice (2018 and 2020), and seven-time Grand Slam champion Venus Williams.
American Danielle Collins is coasting under the radar here along with fellow countrywomen Taylor Townsend and unseeded threats such as Marie Bouzkova and Kaia Kanepi.
Third Quarter: Halep, Gauff, Garcia, Sakkari in Group of Death
Of all the sections in the draw, this is the proverbial “group of death” quarter. Halep and Maria Sakkari are the top two seeds in this section while Cincy champion Garcia, Beatriz Haddad-Maia, Madison Keys and Coco Gauff are some of the other seeded players that could shake things up in this section to book their places in the quarterfinals.
The 30-year-old Romanian first big test will likely come in the fourth round where she could take on any number of players, beginning with American Madison Keys or Coco Gauff. Gauff is the in-form player and one of the rising stars on the WTA Tour. Alternatively, Italian dark horse Camila Giorgi lurks in this section. She’s the kind of player that could shake things up.
In the quarterfinals, Haddad Maia could set up a rematch of her Toronto final loss to Halep. Alternatively, last year’s semifinalist Sakkari or last week’s Cincy champion Garcia could also emerge to challenge the second favorite (Halep) on the betting online odds board,
Fourth Quarter: Jabeur, Kontaveit, Serena Headliners
The fourth and final quarter of the draw is probably one of the “lightest” (respectfully) sections of the US Open draw Ons Jabeur and Anett Kontaveit are the top two seeds in this quarter, but both come into the tournament with fitness question marks.
The other seeds in this section include last year’s runner-up Leylah Fernandez, Russia’s Veronika Kudermetova, Daria Kasatkina, Martina Trevisan, Shelby Rogers and Barbora Krejcikova.
Elsewhere, 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams features in this section but she’s not seeded. Williams opens her tournament against Danka Kovinic and could face Kontaveit in the second round. If Williams can work her way into form, she could potentially capitalize on this advantageous quarter.
The queen and her court.

Williams is likely making her final appearance on the WTA Tour and a deep run in front of her home fans would be a fitting way to end her tennis career.
