August 27-September 9, 2018 -- De nummer 1 van de wereld Simona Halep voert de plaatsingslijst bij de vrouwen aan bij de U.S. Open, het vierde en laatste Grand Slam-toernooi van het seizoen.

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.”
