The US Open will take place between Monday 29 August - Sunday 11 September with Daniil Medvedev and Emma Raducanu the defending champions at Flushing Meadows.
The prize money has been confirmed with over $60 million set in a record amount of compensation after the record was previously broken last year.
The winner during the 2021 edition received $2,500,000, with 2022 set for $2,600,000. While the runner-up will receive $1,300,000. Semi-Finalists are set for $705,000, it goes all the way down to $80,000 for first round.
"One of the most disappointing things was listening to Martina Navratilova lambasting Serena and Venus about their shapes" - says Ian Wright
