Men’s Singles

Defending champion Novak Djokovic can never be counted out as he hunts for a fourth US Open title. He skipped Montreal and seemed to be struggling with pain in his elbow as he bowed out in the Cincinnati semi-final, but is always in the mix as a favourite.

With World No. 2 Rafael Nadal having started the run up to the US Open with a win in Montreal, and choosing to skip Cincinnati – he too should be considered as one of the favourites.

In the mix is the man of the autumn swing, Daniil Medvedev made the final in Washington and Montreal, before winning in Cincinnati.

 

Women’s Singles

Defending champion Naomi Osaka has looked a lot happier on the US hard courts after bagging her second Slam in a row in Australia, but not really catching fire in Europe.

However do not count out the Slam winners of this year – Ashleigh Barty won her maiden Slam at Roland Garros, before Simona Halep more than made up for not defending that title by winning Wimbledon.

It will be hard not to closely monitor Serena Williams’ progress. She declared she had felt far more ready for Wimbledon after struggling with a knee injury for much of the year, but back spasms saw her pull out of the Toronto final just four games in, and she pulled out of Cincinnati the week after.
