U.S. Open women’s seeds 2018

Graphic News

August 27-September 9, 2018 -- World No. 1 Simona Halep heads the women’s seeds the U.S. Open, the fourth and final Grand Slam tournament of the season.

Australian Open winner Caroline Wozniacki is seeded second, with reigning U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens seeded third and Wimbledon champion Angelique Kerber fourth.

Serena Williams, who missed last year’s tournament after having a baby, returns as the No. 17 seed. The six-time U.S. Open champion is the only player in either the men’s or women’s draw seeded above her ranking.

The U.S. Tennis Association (USTA) said: “After balancing a variety of factors, including her return to competition following the birth of her daughter, her recent hard-court performance this summer and recognition of her achievements at the US Open, the USTA has moved Serena Williams’ seeding nine spots, from 26 to 17. We feel this is the appropriate decision, one that recognizes Serena and is fair to the remaining seeded players.”

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
