To be eligible to compete in Kitzbühel, top 10 players must have competed and lost at the US Open by September 7 or the start of qualifying, whilst other players still competing at the Grand Slam tournament will be withdrawn at this deadline.
Thiem's triumph 12 months ago saw him become the first man to triumph on home soil at this tournament since Thomas Muster in 1993, and the Austrian is among 10 players within the top 20 of the FedEx ATP rankings on the entry list.
However, this year's event at Flushing Meadows has been hit with a series of withdrawals, and it will be the first US Open main draw since 1999 that has featured neither Roger Federer nor defending champion Rafael Nadal.
Three of the world's top 10 are set to feature in next month's Generali Open, as defending champion Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Matteo Berrettini all headline a star-studded line-up for the event in Kitzbühel from September 8-13.
