Djokovic, Murray, Medvedev Headline 2020 US Open; When Is The Draw & More – ATP Tour
Following this week’s Western & Southern Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, the ATP Tour will continue on with the US Open. The draw for the 2020 edition will be held on Thursday in New York, with World No. 1 Novak Djokovic set to lead the field.
Djokovic is a three-time champion at this hard-court major (2011, ’15, ’18), and will be going for his second Grand Slam title of the season following his triumph at the Australian Open. Dominic Thiem, who finished runner-up to Djokovic in Melbourne, will be seeded second.
Third seed Daniil Medvedev will look for another memorable run at Flushing Meadows, where he rallied from two sets down against Rafael Nadal in the 2019 final before the Spaniard prevailed 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 4-6, 6-4 after a four-hour, 49-minute battle.
Five different players have won the US Open over the past decade. In addition to Djokovic and Nadal (2010, ’13, ’17, ’19), champions include Andy Murray (2012), Marin Cilic (2014) and Stan Wawrinka (2016). Murray, who fought past Frances Tiafoe and Alexander Zverev in the first two rounds of the Western & Southern Open, is a wild card entry.
