US Open 2012 Men’s Singles Draw: 1st Round

The 2012 US Open men’s main draw singles 1st round matches begin on Monday 27 September at 11am local time at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, New York in the USA. In this post the full singles draw with the wild cards and qualifiers plus the seeded match-ups for the 3rd round is provided.

The 2012 US Open has 128 players vying for the title, a maximum of 2,000 ATP ranking points and US$1,900,000 for the winner. The US Open main draw is divided up between 16 Qualifiers [Q], 8 Wild Cards [WC] and 104 Direct Acceptances. The Top 32 ranked players amongst the 104 Direct Acceptances become the seeds.

The 32 seeds ranged in rankings from World No.1 and 5-time US Open champion Roger FEDERER through to World No.33 Jeremy CHARDY. World No.3 Rafael Nadal was the only injured player and is unable to compete at the US Open and possibly ever again on the ATP Tour, amongst all of the top ranked men who were expected to be seeds.
