Which British players are competing at the US Open 2023?
British No.1 Cam Norrie enters the tournament as the 12th seed and leads an exciting line-up of British talent in the men’s draw. Last year saw the Brit reach the fourth round of the tournament where he eventually fell short to Andrey Rublev in three sets - can Norrie find his form this year and go the distance?
Dan Evans got his hard court swing off to a winning start after lifting the biggest title of his career at the ATP 500 event in Washington D.C where he took down the likes of Frances Tiafoe and Grigor Dimitrov. Meanwhile, former champion Andy Murray will return to the same stage that crowned him a Grand Slam champion for the first time back in 2012.
Completing the men’s main draw line-up – Jack Draper could be set for a return to the courts following a period of injury. Last year saw the British youngster defeat Emil Ruusuvuori and Felix Auger-Aliassime to reach the third round and will be looking to get back to winning ways in New York.
Boulter enjoyed a summer of dreams on home soil during the grass court swing where she claimed a maiden WTA-tour level title at the Rothesay Open Nottingham after beating Burrage in the first all-British final since 1977. The 27-year-old will be heading to New York with a career-high ranking of world No.73 and will be motivated to surpass her tournament best of the opening round.
Meanwhile, Burrage also enters the main draw off the back of a memorable summer on the grass where she finished runner-up to Boulter at the Rothesay Open and also recorded a career-first Grand Slam win at The Championships, Wimbledon.
Entrants into the US Open qualifiers are yet to be announced.
Reigning champion Joe Salisbury will be turning to New York alongside partner Rajeev Ram with the hopes of making it men’s doubles titles in a row, after the clinched back-to-back titles last year. However with a first Grand Slam title now under their belts following their triumph in Wimbledon just a few weeks ago, Neal Skupski and Wesley Koolhof are set to pose a serious threat to the rest of the field.
Former champion Jamie Murray will also contest the title alongside New Zealand doubles partner Michael Venus, as well as Lloyd Glasspool and Finnish partner Harri Heliovaara who have already picked up one ATP title on the hard courts this year in Adelaide.
Alfie Hewett and Gordon Reid will head to the tournament with the ambitions of completing the calendar slam in men's doubles for the second time since 2021. The 18-time Grand Slam champions have claimed victory at all three Grand Slams this year and will be reunited once again in New York, where they bid to make it six US Open men's doubles titles in seven years. Three-time champion Hewett also returns to the final Grand Slam of the year as the defending men's singles champion.
Lucy Shuker will fly the flag for the Brits in the women’s singles and doubles draws as she prepares to contest her seventh US Open since 2013. The British No.1 has already picked up one singles title on the hard courts this year, and two doubles titles alongside Dana Mathewson with the pair looking to cause an upset in the women’s draw.
Meanwhile, two-time US Open quad singles and four-time quad doubles champion Andy Lapthorne is also set to compete across both events.
