Every year, the US Open tennis tournament closes the Grand Slam season, in 2018 from 27th August to 9th September. Bookmakers have already installed Novak Djokovic as the favourite to win the US Open, which starts in only six weeks’ time, just ahead of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Defending champion Stan Wawrinka will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.
Six-time US Open champion Serena Williams, four-time US Open titlist Venus Williams, defending champion Sloane Stephens, 2016 winner (and recent Wimbledon champion) Angelique Kerber, 2011 champion Samantha Stosur and 2006 victor Maria Sharapova are all found in the direct entry list for the 2018 event.
