Roger Federer says 3rd major of year would be surreal

The men's bracket of the Open will be missing mainstay player Novak Djokovic, who retired from Wimbledon with an injury and cited fatigue as one of the causes of him withdrawing from the U.S. Open.

"I tried resting, rehabbing to try to get ready here, " Murray said.

It was clearly a big problem during his home grand slam tournament, when he bowed out, clearly in pain, in the quarter-finals, to Sam Querrey. Obviously when you speak to a lot, there is different views and opinions on what the best thing to do is moving forward, and that's a decision I'll need to take now.

"I have been playing sets the last few days, and I'm really happy how I'm feeling, you know, few days out of the first round here now".

"I think all the young guys play great against those guys", Nick Kyrgios said about his quarterfinal victory over Nadal at Cincinnati.

A whopping eight women have a chance to leave NY with the No. 1 world ranking at the conclusion of the upcoming U.S. Open.

Nadal, who has begun his fourth stint in numero-uno position, has never locked horns with 19-time Grand Slam champion Federer on the NY hard-court in the final major of the season.

Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro, the 2009 US Open champion, is a potential fourth-round opponent for Thiem.

It's exceptional to think the top two favourites in the men's championship are 36-year-old Roger Federer and 31-year-old Rafael Nadal.

Should Murray decide not to play for the rest of the year, his ranking is likely to slide to around 16th.

"But, you know, I'd love to play Rafa here in NY".

Zverev could play Cilic, who won the tournament in 2014 in the semis.

Murray represents Great Britain in his sporting activities and is a three-time Grand Slam tournament victor, two-time Olympic champion, Davis Cup champion and the victor of the 2016 ATP World Tour Finals.

"I'm not too surprised he's back to this magnitude and being back at world No. 1 after all these years is really exceptional, really nice for him". That being sad, if I had to predict a victor, I would still go with Roger Federer.

Federer, who has a record 19 Grand Slam titles after adding two this year at age 36, plays someone nearly half his age in the first round - 19-year-old American upstart Frances Tiafoe.

Then he will seek a first triumph at Flushing Meadows since 2008, he will stand before a table bereft of numerous best players of the circuit male.

Federer turned 36 on August 8, making him older than all but two men to have ever won the most important tennis tournament held in the United States, an event first held in 1881. Here I will outline who I thought looked like they were in top form and who did not, as well as make a few predictions for how I think the tournament will unfold.

The last time Federer played, he lost to Alexander Zverev in the final at Montreal at the beginning of the month.
