The 2023 US Open will take place later this month 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 against 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.
US Open 2023: Date and start time
The US Open will begin on Monday, August 28 and will run until Sunday, September 10.
On August 24, the draw for the tournament will be made and UK start times will be confirmed.
The Grand Slam is being held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.
The hard-court surface venue has 22 outdoor courts with an additional 12 practice courts. The four show courts include the Arthur Ashe Stadium, the Louis Armstrong Stadium, the Grandstand and Court 17.
There will be a total of 128 players starting off in the men’s and women’s singles.

US Open 2023: Prize money
The total prize money for the 2023 US Open will be confirmed closer to the start date.
But in 2022, the prize fund pool for the tournament was £14.5million.
This money was distributed between all the competitors with the men’s and women’s singles champions taking home £2.6million.
The prize money is likely to be even higher this time around after winnings at Wimbledon last month broke records.
