The 2017 US Open will start on Monday and both Arthur Ashe Stadium and Louis Armstrong Stadium will be busy with main-draw matches. While the former is generally loaded with the top stars of the tournament, Louis Armstrong Stadium will feature a trio of American players. Namely, those that are scheduled at this point are Sloane Stephens, John Isner, and Jack Sock for women's and men's singles.

The first match of the day in the stadium will not feature an American player. Petra Kvitova will face Jelena Jankovic in a battle between a two-time Grand Slam champion in Kvitova and a former World No.

1 in Jankovic. That match is scheduled to start at 11am ET in New York with John Isner to follow.

Isner looks to continue hot form

The big-serving American has had a strong summer season of results in America. He started on grass over a month ago, winning the Newport draw in the country's east. The switch over to cement was not a problem as he also won ATP Atlanta. Furthermore, Isner enjoyed a good run in Cincinnati where he made the semifinals last weekend. In the first round of the US Open he will face Pierre-Hugues Herbert, a French player not really known for his results in big tournaments yet.

However in truth the same could be said of Isner in the Grand Slams. The big server can get involved in long matches, marathons that often hurt his chances of doing well. Isner has played a compact schedule of late so it will be interesting to see what he brings to the table on Monday and possibly thereafter. For most of his career he has enjoyed more success in best-of-three-set format than best-of-five.

Sloane Stephens a sleeper at US Open?

After the Isner match, Sloane Stephens will follow on the same court. She is scheduled to face Roberta Vinci, a player fans of American tennis will remember as defeating Serena Williams two seasons ago in the semifinals of the US Open. Stephens, like Isner, is on strong form heading into New York. Many will be looking for her to backup her semifinal runs from Toronto and Cincinnati with a solid result in Flushing Meadows.

The last match of the day in Louis Armstrong Stadium will feature Jack Sock, a match that will follow the conclusion of the Stephens' match but not before 5pm ET. That means that if the previous are efficient in completing then Sock may not follow immediately. Sock has been on the quieter side of late, but he has a match against Jordan Thompson to work into form. Thompson is an Australian player that isn't really known for his excellent big-tournament results either.
