*Serena Williams will look to rebound from her loss at the Olympic Games earlier this month with her run at the U.S. Open, where she’ll enter as the No. 1 seeded woman, the U.S. Tennis Association announced Tuesday.
Novak Djokovic was named the No. 1 seed on the men’s side.
Williams barely held on to that top spot in the rankings following her early exit in Rio without winning a medal. Djokovic also fell short of a medal in Rio, and both have since blamed injuries for their struggles.
Williams said she was dealing with a right shoulder issue, while Djokovic said his left wrist was sore.
This marks the fifth time Williams enters Flushing Meadows as the top seed; she has won the tournament six times.
The U.S. Open runs from Aug. 29 through Sept. 11 in New York.
