Humbert and Tan obtain an invitation to play the US Open

Harmony Tan, 112th player in the world for the WTA, and Ugo Humbert, 141st in the ATP rankings, have obtained an invitation to play the US Open (August 29-September 11), the French Tennis Federation (FFT) announced on Tuesday.

Tan, 24, distinguished herself at Wimbledon by advancing to the round of 16 thanks in particular to a victory in the first round against Serena Williams, before losing to American Amanda Anisimova. She did not have the necessary points to enter the main draw.

The Frenchwoman will play her second New York Major after that of 2018, when she failed in the first round against the Canadian Eugénie Bouchard.

Humbert, also 24, is rewarded for his recent results: two semi-finals on hard courts in Spanish Challenger (2nd division) tournaments, in Segovia and Pozoblanco. The Messin also joined the 3rd round of Wimbledon in July, notably beating Casper Ruud, finalist at Roland-Garros.

The French will play his 5th US Open in a row. He has already reached the 2nd round of Flushing Meadows twice, in 2018 and 2020, and then obtained his best ranking in October 2021, when he reached the 25th place in the world.
