Serena Williams is back on top - of the payroll. The ad was released this week as Williams is getting ready to compete in her first US Open since giving birth to her first child - a daughter named Alexis Olympia - during last year's US Open in September.

On the third spot is Sloane Stephens with $11.2 million, followed by Garbine Muguruza with $11 million, Maria Sharapova with $10.5 million, Venus Williams with $10.2 million, PV Sindhu, Simona Halep with $7.7 million, Danica Patrick with $7.5 million and Angelique Kerber with $7 million.

Serena's opener comes against 60th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland.

French Open champion Nadal could face South Africa's Wimbledon runner-up Kevin Anderson, the fifth seed, in the last eight in what would be a rematch of the 2017 U.S. Open final. No. 2 Federer plays Japan's Yoshihito Nishioka in the first round.

The tournament announced the seeds on Tuesday.

Five-times major victor Maria Sharapova is in Kerber's quarter of the draw and could face 10th-seeded Latvian Jelena Ostapenko in the third round, with the victor potentially meeting either sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia of France or Spanish 30th seed Carla Suarez Navarro in the last 16.

"We could not be more thrilled to have added Serena Williams to the lineup of influential speakers" said Leslie Stiles, board president of the Pennsylvania Conference for Women.

Six-time champion Serena Williams has been elevated to 17th seed as she returns to the US Open.

Citi Open champion Alexander Zverev - who is chasing his maiden Grand Slam title - is seeded fourth while British No 1 Kyle Edmund is seeded 16th, following news that he will feature for Team Europe at next month's Laver Cup.
