Sharapova had a high-profile first-round match at the U.S. Open two years ago, prevailing against second-seeded Simona Halep. That win is among the few bright spots in her post-suspension career, which has not seen her re-enter the top 20.

 

The winner of the Williams-Sharapova match will face either 88th-ranked Timea Bacsinszky, a former top-10 player, or Caty McNally, a 17-year-old American who reached the semifinals of the Citi Open in Washington this month.

 

Hsieh Su-wei, a tricky Taiwanese veteran seeded 29th, looms in the third round. Anastasija Sevastova, who is seeded 12th and has reached the quarterfinals or better in each of the last three years at the Open, is a potential fourth-round opponent.

 

All these players share the bottom quarter of the draw with second-seeded Ashleigh Barty, this year’s French Open champion. Elsewhere in the bottom half are third-seeded Karolina Pliskova and fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina, who could face Venus Williams in the second round.
