  • Watch Rafael Nadal speaks out after officially replacing Andy Murray as world No.1

The anticipation of a classic showdown inside Arthur Ashe Stadium is part of the lure of this year's Open, which begins Monday. Who will win the US Open titles this year?

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. The pair share 34 Grand Slam wins between them.

Aug 20, 2017; Mason, OH, USA; Simona Halep (ROU) serves against Garbine Muguruza (ESP) in the finals during the Western and Southern Open at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.

French Open champion Nadal takes a more pragmatic view and would prefer to play someone other than resurgent Roger in the last four. 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.

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.

"Of course I understand that gonna be great for our history".

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.

"We want the players to do what's best for them in terms of their bodies and their health. The finals are more special than semi-finals, in that case", he added giving his reaction on the proposed clash.

Heat advisory for Bay Area through Monday
Chula Vista is also forecast to hit 92 on Wednesday, which would be four degrees higher than the previous record for the date. Riverside is expected to reach 108 while Lake Elsinore could hit 110 - both would tie record highs.

"I played great on the hard courts so far, won two tournaments, Montreal and Washington back to back, and I felt like I could compete and beat anyone", Zverev told a news conference at the U.S. Open on Saturday. "I'm very excited playing here again". "But I'd love to play Rafa here in NY".

"I mean, there is, like, I don't know, 60-plus players in between us that don't agree in our section that we should make it to the semis. We have our work cut out there". You could foresee that maybe, you know, Rafa and me would be back in some stage in some shape or form, but maybe not quite like this. Hopefully it will be a night session. The men's and women's singles champions receive $3.7 million each, up from $3.5 million previous year.

The missing this year include: Andy Murray, Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Kei Nishikori and Milos Raonic.

It's been a big move up for German wunderkind Alexander Zverev. Federer is ranked and seeded third. His fifth and now final triumph came in 2008, where he beat Roddick and Djokovic before easing past Andy Murray in the Brit's first major final.

"Ten matches, ten victories to have that match", Nadal said. Nadal, Federer's long-time rival, has also had a Renaissance year and has looked healthier than he has in a long time. "Obviously I kind of ran out of time".

2016 WOMEN'S SINGLES CHAMPION: Angelique Kerber of Germany. She could meet eighth-seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in the quarterfinals.

"On the court I'm just lacking a little bit of that consistency point after point, to be continuing with my aggression". "I have enough pressure". Karolina Pliskova, the top seed, could win her half. Doesn't really matter at the end of the tournament what seed you were. But so could fourth seed Elina Svitolina, a 22-year-old who is having a fine year.
