Which British players will be competing in the US Open 2022?
Back to retain her title at Flushing Meadows, 19-year-old British star, Emma Raducanu, who etched her name in the history books last year after becoming the first ever qualifier and first British woman in 44 years to lift a Grand Slam trophy. Coming in off the back of victories over Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka in Cincinnati, the young Brit is finding her form just at the right time for the US Open.
British No.1 Cam Norrie comes in as the eighth seed this year and will fancy his chances to go deep on one of his favourite surfaces. Norrie enters the US Open having reached the semi-final at Wimbledon this year and more recently the final four at the Western & Southern Open, where he defeated world No.4 Carlos Alcaraz.
Dan Evans has been in strong form on the hard courts recently, with a semi-final appearance at the Canadian Open under his belt. Meanwhile, former champion Andy Murray will be one to watch returning the courts where he won his first Grand Slam singles trophy back in 2012.
Jack Draper will look to bring his firepower to New York for the first time this year having shot up the rankings to world No.55 thanks to a quarter-finals appearance in Montreal. Kyle Edmund rounds off the Brits in the singles main draw as he continues to make his long-awaited return from injury.
There are nine Brits in qualifying this year. In the women’s draw, Heather Watson and Katie Boulter lead the charge, while Jodie Burrage, Lily Miyazaki and Sonay Kartal will all be hoping for a US Open debut. On the men’s side, Ryan Peniston and Liam Broady will be looking to replicate their heroics over the summer, with Jay Clarke and Paul Jubb set to challenge for a main draw spot as well.
World No.1 and reigning champion Joe Salisbury will be the top seed in the men’s doubles with Rajeev Ram, after the two bagged their second Masters title of the season in Cincinnati last week. However, Neal Skupski also looks set to be a serious contender for the crown having won six titles already this year and rising up to world No.4.
Former champions and 2021 finalists Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares shouldn’t be slept on this year, as well as Lloyd Glasspool and his partner Harri Heliovaara, who have been one of the breakthrough pairs on tour. Jonny O’Mara rounds off an impressive British line-up gunning for the crown.
Another two players with their eyes on retaining their title are Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid, who are set to team up once again in their bid for a sixth successive US Open doubles crown, as well as competing in the singles. A former singles champion in 2018 and 2019, Hewett will be hoping to complete his hat-trick in 2022.
Lucy Shuker will fly the flag for the Brits in both women’s events as she contests her sixth US Open since 2013. Meanwhile, two-time US Open quad singles and four-time US Open quad doubles champion Andy Lapthorne will look to lift yet another trophy at Flushing Meadows this year, after claiming victory at the British Open last month.
