US Open 2023 LIVE: Dates, UK start times, schedule, seeds and how to follow as Carlos Alcaraz aims to win back-to-back Grand Slams
August 27, 2023
The 2023 US Open will get underway next week and all eyes will once again be on reigning champion Carlos Alcaraz.
Alcaraz won his first Grand Slam at this tournament last year by beating Casper Ruud to become the youngest-ever World No 1.
The Spaniard now heads to the USA one year later as the star of tennis after an historic triumph over Novak Djokovic at Wimbledon.
The rivals will headline the action once again with Djokovic returning to compete in the States after missing last year’s event due to being denied entry to the country because of Covid restrictions.
Britain’s Cameron Norrie and Andy Murray are also expected to compete at the tournament but 2021 champion Emma Raducanu will miss out through injury.
Iga Swiatek will be looking to defend her title from last year but will face fierce competition from the likes of Aryna Sabalenka, Jessica Pegula and Elena Rybakina.
