Kurumi Nara said Thursday she will go into this year’s U.S. Open as the 31st seed with the same mindset she had last year, when she reached the third round as a qualifier.

Nara, who had never before been seeded at a Grand Slam event, will face Aleksandra Wozniak in the first round. The Canadian is ranked 97th in the world.
