Iga Swiatek, currently the World No. 1 player will be back on the court, this time as the defending champion. With her upset at the Cincinnati Masters 1000 semi-final against Coco Gauff, she will be hoping to play her best game. She has 4 WTA titles in the books, just this 2023 season. With a total of four Grand Slam titles under her belt, the Pole will be after a fifth. Swiatek also has a good track record with hard courts, with three of her five WTA 1000 titles being on this surface.

Rebecca Peterson, presently holding rank 75 in the world, has two WTA titles and one runner-up position to her name. However, this year, she has shown her best-ever result at a Grand Slam with a second-round finish at the French Open. She has also made it to the fourth round at Indian Wells, where she lost to Gauff. This is also the year since 2019 when she made it back to the top 100.

The Pole should be unfazed walking into the opening round at Flushing Meadows. Though both players appear to be playing their best games at the moment, current form and past encounters show that Swiatek will be the one emerging successful.

Prediction: Iga Swiatek to win in two sets.
