Not only will I be discussing the US Open qualifying seeds, but I’ve also covered the US Open qualifying dates, as well as a few other intricate details. So, as mentioned above, with the qualifying draw starting today (August 22nd), I reckon we should get straight into things! 

US Open qualifying dates – event breakdown

Before we get into anything such as the draw or seeds, it’s important that you know the dates. This way, you’ll know when the first rounds, second rounds, and final rounds of qualifying are taking place. And with this knowledge, you can then check-in for the key matches that you’d like to watch. So on that note, I’ve provided an overview of the US Open qualifying dates for you to use as a reference below:

  • Tuesday, August 22nd – first rounds
  • Wednesday, August 23rd – first rounds
  • Thursday, August 24th – second rounds
  • Friday, August 25th – third rounds

US Open qualifying seeds – top names and key details

Much like the main draw of the US Open, the US Open qualifying draw has 32 seeds for both the men’s and women’s singles events. With that said, only 16 players from each of these draws will qualify for the main draw. Therefore, while there are 32 seeds in the draw, only half of these seeds are expected to qualify. At the same time, there is no guarantee that it will be a seeded player from each section that qualifies. After all, one of the unseeded qualifiers might come through and surprise us all – who knows!

As for the specifics of the US Open qualifying seeds, let me break down the top 16 players in both the men’s and women’s singles draws. I’m doing this as these are the players that are expected to qualify on paper, and the full list is given below.

US Open qualifying draw – the ins and outs for 2023

For the 2023 US Open qualifying draw, there are 128 players involved in the men’s and women’s singles. And as you’ve seen above, there are 32 seeds in both events. Yet while 32 seeded players are involved, just 16 will qualify. As for the impact this has on the draw, there are two seeds in each of the 16 sections of the draw. Additionally, there are wildcards and players with a protected ranking too, and these are split throughout the draw. 

Yet at the end of the day, there will be just one qualifier from each section.
