Nadal, Federer Warn Against Change Despite Injury Toll

Diego Schwartzman

Recently dethroned world number one Andy Murray has pulled out of the US Open citing a hip injury which he has been suffering for the past four months.

An injury-ravaged men's draw offers the best opportunity yet for a young pretender to claim a maiden Grand Slam crown, but in this most retro of seasons, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal will look to turn back time.

The Scot, who had not played since Wimbledon, said he had tried everything to be fit for the final grand slam of the year which starts on Monday.

"I certainly wouldn't have been hurting myself more by trying to play". After those first two sets, which were quite good considering I haven't played, just dropped little bit with my game.

The world number two struggled through Wimbledon with the problem, losing in the quarter-finals to Sam Querrey, but his prospects for Flushing Meadows had looked positive when he travelled to NY last weekend. We were hoping that by taking a few weeks off and resting and rehabbing and really reducing the load that I was putting through it, I would be okay by the time US Open came around.

"I spoke to a lot of hip specialists".

Federer, 36, looking to win three Grand Slam titles in the same year for the first time since 2007, will be most people's title pick, having produced a stunning year since returning from a six-month layoff in January - compiling a 35-3 record.

'I think it's very positive in all kinds of ways.

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.

No5 seed and former champion Marin Cilic moves into Murray's place at the bottom of the draw, and No17 seed Querrey moves from Federer's eighth into Cilic's spot and a possible quarter-final against Zverev. The Frenchman has been in search of form through the US Open Series: He lost in the first round in both Montreal and Cincinnati.

"This is actually why I didn't want to comment here...."

Nadal, back on top of the world rankings for the first time in three years, is a two-time victor in NY, his 2010 and 2013 titles forming part of his 15-Slam portfolio which was embellished by a record 10th French Open in June. "If it means I can play before the end of the year, then that's what I would love to do".

Philipp Kohlschreiber replaces Querrey and will face Tim Smyczek. "Did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon".

On Saturday night, Federer struck an upbeat tone: 'I have been on the practice courts since last week.
