Highlights of US Open second day

Roger Federer Winning three Grand Slams this year would be a joke

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

At 36, Federer isn't likely to play for another eight or nine years but he is playing some of the best tennis of his career at this advanced tennis age - maybe the best tennis.

Now the big stage in NY awaits Swiss legend Federer and Spanish icon Nadal.

Instead, Federer stays where he is at No. 3.

But when the draw came out last Friday, they were placed in the same half of the draw, meaning they could meet in the semifinals on September 8, not the final September 10.

"I certainly wouldn't have been hurting myself more by trying to play". "No, of course I understand that (it's) gonna be great for our history".

Federer, the five-time U.S. champion from 2004-2008, is bidding for a 20th major and third of the year after capturing the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles.

Trump Invokes Clinton And Obama To Defend Pardoning Arpaio
Trump described Apaio as "loved in Arizona" despite the fact that only 21 percent of state residents approved of his pardon. Trump read through a list of pardons made by presidents Clinton and Obama, including Marc Rich and Chelsea Manning .

And fans are more than happy that for the first time ever, Flushing Meadows would witness a Federer-Nadal rivalry with a possible semi-final showdown.

"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". "If I am in semi-finals, no". We have our work cut out there. 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. But none was seen in a US Open tournament.

Bolstering each man's hope of another U.S. Open title is the absences of several of the tour's top players. World number two Andy Murray, the 2012 champion, withdrew on Saturday after failing to recover from a hip injury.

Federer closes proceedings on centre court, which was equipped with a roof previous year that could prove helpful as rain might disrupt the action at Flushing Meadows.

With Kei Nishikori, the 2014 runner-up, and Milos Raonic also injured, five of the current world top 11 will be missing when the tournament starts on Monday.

Perhaps the biggest threat to Nadal and Federer is upstart German Alexander Zverev. However, Murray's slot has been taken by the fifth-seeded Marin Cilic. For the full schedule, head to the U.S.

However, Nadal broke back with a love game to force a tiebreak, which he eventually won 8-6 to put himself in control of the match. Federer meets American Frances Tiafoe. "I felt like I could compete and beat anyone during this period of time".
