Serena Williams seeded No. 1 at US Open; Halep 2nd

NEW YORK (TIP): Top-ranked Serena Williams is seeded No. 1 as she seeks her third straight US Open title. The US Tennis Association followed this week’s WTA rankings in announcing the seedings Wednesday. French Open runner-up Simona Halep is seeded second after reaching a career-best ranking this month.

She has never advanced past the fourth round at the US Open. Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is seeded No. 3 with third-ranked Li Na out because of a knee injury. Agnieszka Radwanska moves up to No. 4. Five-time major champ Maria Sharapova is seeded fifth, meaning there’s a chance she could face Williams in the quarterfinals. The runner-up the last two years, Victoria Azarenka, is seeded 16th after an injuryplagued season. Venus Williams is seeded 19th.
