Who is Stefan Kozlov?

The likes of Tommy Paul, Taylor Fritz and Jenson Brooksby will represent America's best chance of success at the 2022 US Open, but 24-year-old Stefan Kozlov is another home favourite who will be in action in round one.

Sitting at No.111 in the world rankings with a career-best of 103, the Macedonian-born Kozlov is far from a household name in the States, but this game will thrust the youngster into the limelight as he prepares to take on the World No.1
