Murray withdraws from US Open with hip injury

Tennis: Andy Murray has to be 100 per cent for NY, says Tim Henman

Maria Sharapova's return to grand slam action will begin with a high-profile clash against Romanian second seed Simona Halep while Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal could meet in the U.S. Open semi-finals, according to Friday's draw.

"I mean, I'd be happy to play him here", Federer stated as he looks to win a third Grand Slam of the year.

He added of his and Nadal's success: "I didn't foresee that the defending champion and the finalist wouldn't be here". "And we worked well". "But there are about 60 players between us who don't want it. So let's see how we finish season".

"That would be fun for everybody involved", Federer said. I don't think we are both thinking that far ahead. "We have our work cut out there".

One could expect world number one Rafael Nadal and third-ranked Roger Federer renew their long rivalry after the duo have been drawn to face each other in the blockbuster semi-finals of the US Open.

"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.

Outside of those two, I think Madison Keys or Sloane Stephens could surprise.

Federer is a five-time victor of this tournament, last taking the title in 2008.

While Federer is up to take on Nadal, Nadal said he would rather play someone easier, Zagoria said. "Like you said, we never played here in NY, so I think that would be fun for everybody involved". Sharapova then was going to try to qualify for Wimbledon in June, but she ended up skipping the grass-court portion of the season because of an injured left thigh. He won the U.S. Open in 2014. This year, Murray reached the semifinals of the French Open and the quarterfinals of Wimbledon. I prefer to play against another one. "I see all of them being unsafe", McEnroe said. "So many great memories of the tournament, being a champion, coming back to it".

Nadal, who has returned to No. 1, faces Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in an afternoon match in Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Maria Sharapova returns for her first grand slam match in 19 months in NY but has been paired with number two seed Simona Halep. "I felt like I could compete and beat anyone during this period of time".

He added, "I chose to change up the style in 2009".

"I'm trying to be aggressive, trying to take the time away from my opponents, especially when I play someone like Roger, Rafa, where you have to be the aggressor on the court. It's a big match".

The challengers to Federer and Nadal include the likes of Alexander Zverev, Andy Murray, Grigor Dimitrov, Domimic Thiem, Juan Martin Del Potro and Milos Raonic but Marin Cilic is the leading chance for me.
