At the start of the US Open, Ana will play against 21-year-old Ashleigh Barty from Australia. Ana is the 21st seed of the tournament and if she wins in the 1st round, in the 2nd round she will play against the winner of the match between the Belarusian Aleksandra Sasnovich and the American Julia Boserup. If, as expected, seeds win in the first two rounds, Ana would play in the 3rd round against the 11th seed, Slovakian Dominika Cibulkova.

Barty's greatest success at the US Open was when she played in the second round in 2013. That same year she was one of the finalists in the doubles.    Interestingly, in the doubles she played in the finals of all four Grand Slam tournaments and lost all four. In her career she has won one singles tournament and five doubles. In singles competition, 54th place is her best career placement. She played twice in the singles in the US Open Main Event (2013 and 2014). The best singles result at Grand Slam tournaments she achieved this year at the Australian Open, where she reached 3rd round.

For Ana this is, also, the third time she has participated in the US Open's Main Event. Two years ago she was defeated in the 2nd round and last year she played in the quarter-finals which is her best result at a Grand Slam tournament.
