Karolina Pliskova will be looking to defend her world number one status at the US Open and, more significantly perhaps, land her first Grand Slam title.
The Czech undoubtedly has the power to dominate at Flushing Meadows, having hit more aces than any other player on tour this season.
She also has the course form as last year's losing finalist and is the model of consistency on tour, making eight semi-finals from 15 events, landing three titles.
However, the lack of a previous Grand Slam title will be a concern for backers, especially given the way she struggled with the weight of expectation at Wimbledon, having been installed as the favourite. She lost in round two.
Whether she can implement her powerful game effectively in the season's final major remains to be seen, but she certainly has the tools for the task.
