Nadal, Federer set to pounce at injury-hit US Open

On paper, Halep should progress - but the 30-year-old Russian, who won the US Open title in 2006, has a 6-0 win record over her.

The 14-day tournament begins Monday.

The 36-year-old Federer turned the tables this year, winning all three games against his old nemesis, starting in January at the Australian Open, moving on to the Miami Open final and then the Indian Open quarterfinals.

"If I am in semifinals, no", said Nadal, who won here in 2010 and '13.

Murray suffered the injury in a five-set French Open semi-final loss to Swiss Stan Wawrinka in June.

Czech Pliskova opens play on Arthur Ashe Stadium at 16:00 BST against Poland's Magda Linette, followed by Germany's Kerber against Naomi Osaka of Japan. Those two are also on a potential semifinal collision course.

"I know you want to hear the other way, that I would love to play with him", Nadal told reporters.

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. No, of course I understand that it's going to be great for our history [if we play]."A lot of Nadal's lack of enthusiasm is easily explained by the fact that Federer is now riding his longest winning streak ever against Nadal. The finals are more special than semi-finals, in that case", he added giving his reaction on the proposed clash. "A lot of points and games to play, so now is not the moment to think about that", stated Nadal in his pre-tournament press conference. "We never played here in NY, so I think that would be fun for everybody involved".

"I think we are all playing great tennis over the hard-court swing, so it's more about that than just thinking, "okay, I'm playing them in a five-set match it's going to be so much different than a three-set match".

"From a truly anatomical standpoint, the work the players are doing now to maintain elite levels of human performance well into their 30s it is indeed possible and perceivable that we might see champions at this level among players in their 40s", said Ellenbecker. You never know what can happen in the future, but playing again with those long trousers is not going to happen. Hopefully it will be a night session.

"I certainly wouldn't have been hurting myself more by trying to play".

Second-seeded Brit Andy Murray pulled out Saturday due to a hip injury, and Serbian standout Novak Djokovic isn't participating due to an elbow injury.

Past year was the first with the roof covering the main stadium at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

However, Federer had other ideas and shocked the world by defeating longtime rival Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open final before defeating Marin Cilic to capture his 8th Wimbledon title. Federer is ranked and seeded third. Federer won the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

"Ten matches, ten victories to have that match", Nadal said.

For his part, Federer said he'd love the chance to meet Nadal in NY.
