Federer in same half as Nadal

30 August, 2017, 01:25 | Author: Essie Rivera

"I don't think we are both thinking that far ahead", said Federer, who has never played against Nadal in NY.

Andy Murray - knocked off the top of the rankings this week - will face Tennys Sandgren in his opening match and, should he make it to the latter stages in NY, will avoid Federer and Nadal until the final. "And we worked well".

That leaves No. 1 seed Rafael Nadal and No. 3 Roger Federer as the two clear favourites for the men's trophy.

"That would be fun for everybody involved", Federer said.

"We never played here and for sure this year we are not going to play in finals. We have our work cut out there". "I mean, there's like, I don't know-60-plus guys in between us that don't agree we, in our section, should make it to the semis".

For the men's draw at the US Open, Rafael Nadal, who just returned to being the number one player in the world earlier this week, is the top seed.

"Five matches [for each] remain, so ten matches, ten victories to have that match".

The talented German said he was confident he could challenge the likes of Federer and Nadal, pointing to previous performances against the greats. "Now is not the moment to think about that".

A match-up between Nadal and Federer - arch-rivals, all-time greats and winners of the first three Grand Slam events of 2017 - would be their first-ever meeting at Flushing Meadows, reports Efe. Nadal's most recent major crown was at Roland Garros in 2014.

But, as the two-time former US Open champion summed it up, being the world No. 1 was only secondary to getting a chance to play at the US Open.

"Hopefully I can do that like I have done in other big events this year, and we will see how it will go down in the end".

For Sharapova, the Broadway stage shines a spotlight on her comeback and controversy.

Sharapova was kicked off the tour after testing positive for the newly banned drug meldonium at the 2016 Australian Open. She reached the semis at Wimbledon.

"I have been playing sets the last few days and I'm really happy how I'm feeling". "I don't think Maria's going to be intimidated, because I don't think anyone intimidates her". Her sister, Venus Williams, however, will be competing and is hoping to take home her third US Open title. Now Sharapova, who has fallen to No. 147 in the world rankings, will face off against number two seeded Simona Halep in the first round. Under Grand Slam rules, the man seeded 17th - in this case Querrey - moves to Cilic's vacated spot and will play Gilles Simon of France. "She beat me six times". Maybe I will change this. "It's a big match".

The missing this year include: Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic.
