Ahead of the opening match, tennis fans are wondering if the world No. 1 player, Iga Świątek, is playing at the US Open this year.
Is Iga Świątek playing at US Open in 2023?
Yes, Świątek plans to participate in the 2023 US Open. In her last Grand Slam appearance, the world No. 1 was upset by Elina Svitolina in the Wimbledon quarter-finals. However, Świątek is the reigning US Open champion, having claimed the title last year with a victory over Ons Jabeur in the final.
