Injured Murray out of US Open

Injured Murray out of US Open

They will not meet in the final this year, as they are both in the top half, and would meet in the semis if all goes well.

Federer, who plays young American Frances Tiafoe in round one, said: "It opens the draw, like we saw in Montreal and Cincinnati".

"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". They were drawn Friday into the same half of the bracket, meaning they could only meet in the semifinals in NY. It gives a certain perspective, noted Severin Luthi, one of the trainers of roger Federer. He's not ready to talk about Federer just yet. "But as I say before, we made a lot [before]". After titles this summer in Montreal and Washington, plus a Masters win in Rome, Zverev wants more. The pair share 34 Grand Slam wins between them. Then came the Indian Wells and finally Miami Open.

If you're looking for an American man to do well, stick with John Isner.

Murray would have been keeping his fingers crossed for a kind draw as he prepares to test out the hip that gave him such trouble during Wimbledon, and that appears to have played out. He has a potential match up with Grigor Dimitrov, the Cincinnati victor, in the quarters before Federer in the semis and Murray or Zverev in the decider.

Having begun the year ranked 24, Zverev has stormed into the top 10 and is virtually certain to qualify for the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals for the first time.

"Facing her, I'm, like, it's going to be a big challenge", Halep said.

The Seminoles and Crimson Tide, who are the first program in 12 years to take the top spot two years in a row, will meet at 8 p.m. The reigning national champion Tigers are still in the top five despite losing key players, such as Deshaun Watson.

Xiaomi will show new flagship next week
Total, Xiaomi might be one of these three gadgets, or, if lucky, will announce all the new products immediately. The invite gives little information about the phone - but it does hint at the presence of a dual-camera setup.

On the women's side, there is a wide-open feel with six-time champion Serena Williams absent due to her pregnancy. Maybe I will change this. Halep, Pliskova, Muguruza, Svitolina, Wozniacki, Johanna Konta, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Venus Williams all could reach the top spot if the appropriate scenario plays out in NY.

In fact, she was denied a wild-card invitation into the French Open and did not ask for one at Wimbledon, where she had to pull out of qualifying because of a muscle injury.

The other half of the women's draw is a wildcard.

Can new number one Karolina Pliskova breakthrough and win her first major?

She is drawn to meet fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina in the last eight. Last year's women's singles victor Angelique Kerber should be in the mix to win it all in NY in the middle part of September.

But the sway of the rivalry favors Federer in 2017, as do the fast-playing hardcourts in NY, where Federer's attacking game can be nearly as lethal as it is on Wimbledon's grass.
