It will act as the start of the American hard court swing. The Top Seed Open will be a tournament though which will see many top WTA stars involved before the Western & Southern Open and US Open both take place at Flushing Meadows.

Serena Williams is the top seeded player in this tournament. Aryna Sabalenka is no. 2 but for the former she could meet Venus Williams and Sloane Stephens en route to the final.

Amanda Anisimova and Coco Gauff are also among the top American talent on show with a meeting for the latter possible with Sabalenka in the second round.

In terms of Prize money , due to it's stature it is the same as the Prague Open also taking place next week which involves Simona Halep. The winner will claim $25,000 with 280 points.

Finalist will get $14,000 with 180 points, semi-finalists will receive $8,035 + 110 points while Quarter-Finalists will claim $5,000 + 60 points. This goes down to the first round where defeated players will claim $2,300 but only one point on their rankings.
