That being sad, if I had to predict a victor, I would still go with Roger Federer.

"In January, yes", Nadal said, confirming his own surprise at his and Federer's success in 2017.

Zverev will face Darian King in his opener at Flushing Meadows, where he has never been beyond the second round. "That's bad", Nadal said. If it means that I can play before the end of the year, then that's what I would love to do.

Federer celebrated his 36th birthday on 8 August, and in the history of the tournament, which dates back to 1881, only two players came out victorious at a more advanced age than hers.

"Look, I want to be back on court as soon as I can". The World no 1 is searching for her first Grand Slam title and with recent hardcourt results being good but not outstanding, you get the feeling she is building nicely into the US Open. We never played here and we are not going to play in the finals.

A potential meeting between the two, which could only happen in the semifinals, is tasty enough to have tennis fans salivating more than a week in advance.

Nadal will face Serbian Dusan Lajovic in his first-round match. Nadal leads their head-to-head series 23-14 overall and 9-3 in Grand Slam tournaments.

As reported on the US Open website: Murray said: "Obviously had the issue with the hip over what's actually been since my match with Stan in Paris".


"I'm totally honoured to have this particular event named after myself", Laver said. We have our work cut out there.

"But I will prepare myself as best as possible, so as to have the best chance of success in NY". Hopefully that would be a great atmosphere. Though she hasn't won a major since, she could be in line to win back-to-back in NY in two weeks time. I'm holding out hope that we'll get that blockbuster semi-final between him and Rafael Nadal, but both of them do have tough draws so an upset could be in the cards.

"I didn't forsee that the defending champ and the finalist wouldn't be here", Federer said.

"I like the way I'm playing".

Despite being drawn in the same half as Federer, there has also been money for French Open champion Rafael Nadal (3/1), as well as Marin Cilic (22/1).

Federer said the absence of some of the sport's top players created an opening for lesser-known talent to emerge. "For me, only once he retires, I believe he won't win". The world no six is in Murray's half of the draw and will be playing well into the second week.

The US Open will definitely be without defending champion Stan Wawrinka, two-time victor Novak Djokovic as well as former finalist Kei Nishikori, who have all pulled the plug on their seasons because of injury.

The three-time Grand Slam champion looked emotional Saturday afternoon as he announced his decision at Flushing Meadows, where he had been training for the past week. Obviously, I kind of ran out of time maybe if I'd been able to take a little bit more time off. "That's not been the case". Nadal has lost in the first round of a grand slam once since 2014. There is plenty of intrigue to be found on the women's side also, with one of the most open fixtures we've seen in years. John McEnroe has him as a future No. 1 and tennis needs his charismatic jolt. Querrey, a semifinalist at Wimbledon this year, faces Gilles Simon in his first-round match.
