Muguruza is coming off her first career win at Wimbledon, but has struggled at the U.S. Open, failing to get past the second round in four previous appearances. "Roger Federer's 36 years old". In fact, accounting all grand slam finals, the Nadal has won nine out of their 12 encounters.
Roger Federer was fielding questions from the media on Saturday at the US Open when a young boy in the press corps piped up and asked him a question. The lone down side is the two are on the same side of the draw, meaning they would have to square off in the semifinals.
"Facing her, I'm, like, it's going to be a big challenge", Halep said.
Czech world number one Karolina Pliskova, runner-up at last year's tournament, will play her first round against Poland's Magda Linette and is projected to play 2004 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova in the last eight. She finished runner up to Angelique Kerber in last year's US Open and can be backed at around 13/2 to go one better this year. "The finals are more special than semi-finals, in that case".
Dimitrov won the U.S. Open warm-up tournament in Cincinnati and is sometimes called "Baby Fed", as his playing style is similar to Federer's, Zagoria said. That to me is a whole new ballgame. "But I'd love to play Rafa here in New York", he said. "There's like 60-plus players in between us that don't agree we should make it to the semis. We have our work cut out there".

"It's just here and there, a few points decided both of those matches (against Nadal and Raonic) and who knows what could have been if I won those matches". Hopefully it will be a night session.
Two days before the start of one of the biggest tennis championships in the world, world number two Andy Murray has withdrawn from the tournament. The men's and women's singles champions receive $3.7 million each, up from $3.5 million a year ago.
Alexander Zverev has never reached a Grand Slam quarter-final, but the 20-year-old German prodigy suddenly finds himself the man to beat in his half of the US Open draw. Federer is ranked and seeded third. The problem was still evident during the grass season, and Murray lost in the first round of the Aegon Championships, where he was defending champion.
And he is back among the favorites after his triumphs at the Australian open in January and Wimbledon in July, the only risks he has taken part in 2017.
But Nadal and Federer will very much be on the court.
