In the first round, Ash Barty will play Vera Zvonareva, a two-time grand slam finalist. Clara Burel of France will most likely be her second-round opponent.

She might face Shelby Rogers of the United States in the third round of the US Open. Then, she may meet Karolina Muchova or Jennifer Brady in the fourth round.

Iga Swiatek, the 2019 French Open winner, might be her contender in the quarterfinals. If Barty overcomes all of these challenges, she will face Karolina Pliskova or Bianca Andreescu in the semi-finals. If all goes according to plan for the world number one, she will battle Naomi Osaka in the finals for the title.
