This year has been special for American tennis. While there were bright spots and breakthroughs, the year overall was a bit of a drag. Tommy Paul reached the semi-finals of the Australian Open, and Christopher Eubanks ended his career with a successful performance at Wimbledon. However, Taylor Fritz was unable to establish himself in the top 10 and failed to become a consistent threat in the Majors. Francis Tiafoe made it into the top ten but struggled late in the year. Sebastian Korda, poised for a breakthrough, missed several months due to injury, and Reilly Opelka was still recovering. Jenson Brooksby was suspended for 18 months due to a missed doping test, and John Isner decided to retire.

Now that many stars have achieved success, 2023 has suddenly turned from a year of stagnation to one of growth. What awaits us in 2024? Do players Fritz and Tiafoe have another chance? Will Shelton’s path continue? Surprises await us and the short off-season period is the perfect time for optimism. In this material we will look at the Top 7 best tennis players from the USA in 2024.

Taylor Fritz

26 years old, ranks 10th in the ATP rankings (last year he was ninth).

Last year’s 2023 campaign was a period for him to maintain his position. For the second year in a row, he won eight Grand Slam matches and 17 in the ATP 1000. He won two titles and returned to the top 10. However, has he reached his limit? Can he continue to win Grand Slam titles and threaten the leaders? Can the young player take his rightful place on this list? These questions remain open in 2024.

Ben Shelton

21 years old, ranks 17th (last year was 96th).

In 2023, he made significant progress. He reached the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam tournament for the first time at the Australian Open. Ben also reached the semi-finals at the US Open. His fall from 7th to 17th place from February to July made a difference. 2023 also saw Shelton face off against Novak Djokovic for the first time. According to analysts, the 2024 season could be a breakthrough in the career of the young tennis player.

Francis Tiafoe

25 years old, ranks 16th (last year was 19th).

He spent nearly three months in the Top 10 in 2023, but after losing to Shelton in the US Open quarterfinals, he lost five of seven matches and lost the final six sets of the year. Since 2021, when he won four of five matches against top-10 players, he has lost nine of his last 11 and went winless this year (taking zero sets). However, the 25-year-old still has plenty of room to grow and time to improve.

Sebastian Korda

23 years old, currently ranked 24th (last year was 33rd).

He was the self-proclaimed “worst athlete in the family” but made a significant breakthrough in 2023 after defeating Daniil Medvedev to reach the quarterfinals at the Australian Open. However, a wrist injury sidelined Korda for almost four months and he won only one Grand Slam match before the end of the year. At the same time, in the fall, at a certain point, Sebastian was able to win 10 victories out of 12 matches. His playing style is the most versatile of any of the “young, hotshot Americans,” so the young 23-year-old has plenty of room to grow.

Tommy Paul

26 years old, current place: 13th (last year: 32nd).

Paul made the most of a favorable situation at the Australian Open to reach the semi-finals and then scored his best win of the season in a three-setter against Carlos Alcaraz to reach the semi-finals in Toronto. He may have the best game of any American, but at 6-foot-1, his serve is a problem. If Tommy can improve in this component, the results of the American athlete will improve.

Reilly Opelka

26 years old, current place: 1141st (last year: 38th).

The 6-foot-11 pitching robot missed most of the year with a hip injury and then injured his wrist while rehabbing. After one match in the Candidates Tournament in November, he withdrew due to a hand injury. Since August 2022, he has earned seven ranking points. But he’s only 26 years old, and if his now lengthy injury history was more of a setback than a sign of things to come, Reilly has plenty of time to re-establish himself as a top tennis player.

JJ Wolf

24 years old, current place: 53rd (last year: 66th).

The 24-year-old reached the fourth round of the Australian Open and briefly cracked the ATP top 40. He also posted a 3-5 record against top-20 opponents, better than Paul. However, Wolf then lost four matches in a row during the summer season in America and again fell out of the top 50.
