Who are the US Open defending champions?
Rafael Nadal secured the top spot with his win in Toronto, his only hard court tournament in the lead up to the US Open, but interestingly he has not won any tournament this year where Roger Federer has also been in the draw.
With the return of Andy Murray after a long recovery from his hip injury, it is the first time the Big Four are together at a Slam since Wimbledon 2017.
Sloane Stephens showed with her run to the Roland Garros final that she was not a one-trick pony. As the third seed, she has some formidable competition as the four reigning Slam champions occupy the top seedings.
However do not discount six-time champion and Wimbledon 2018 finalist Serena Williams as an outside chance for her 24th Slam title.
