Prepare for the 2018 US Open brackets, tracking the world’s tennis greats from the first round until trophy presentation.

American tennis on the women’s side of the house is in good hands with the indomitable Serena Williams still competing, but also with up-and-comers like Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys. Men’s tennis, not so much, as Andy Roddick over a decade ago was the last premier American male player. He, in turn, was not on the tier of Pete Sampras or Andre Agassi, whose tennis careers are far in the past.

Who is there — John Isner? Maybe Jack Sock? Isner (world #11) is on the wrong side of 30 with no major victories, and Sock is on the correct side, but has never gotten beyond the fourth round of a Grand Slam event. Sock, by the way, is 18th in the ATP rankings. You have to drop down to 34th and 35th before locating Steve Johnson and Sam Querrey, respectively.

128 singles players in each the men’s and women’s draws will descend on the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens. For this tennis tournament, the last Grand Slam event of the year, we have given a new look to our brackets. It’s a lot to squeeze in 128 names, so at least as the tournaments progress, the names will become easier to read. Just imagine what a cluster it would be if the NCAA Basketball Tournament did something like this. There’s not a hotel in Vegas that could fit that whole thing on its side.

For The Bracket Yard’s bracket coverage of the previous three Grand Slam events of 2018, check out the 2018 Australian Open, 2018 French Open-Roland Garros, and 2018 Wimbledon.
