  • US Open 2019 draw

Djokovic will play Roberto Carballes Baena in the first round, while Federer will play a qualifier in the first round.

Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova will meet in Monday night's first feature match at the US Open with 20-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer following them on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Out of their 19 on-court meetings Sharapova won just three, with the latest victory being recorded at last year's French Open, when Williams didn't appear on the court, having pulled out of the fourth round match due to an injury.

The upcoming U.S. open match will more likely be another walk in the park for Williams, who has already played three Grand Slam finals since returning from maternity leave. Ramos, the USTA announced, will not govern a Williams match during the fortnight for this year's US Open.

Monday's schedule at Louis Armstrong Stadium includes Czech third seed Karolina Pliskova, chasing her first major title, against compatriot Tereza Martincova, India's Prajnesh Gunneswaran against Russian fifth seed Daniil Medvedev and China's Zheng Saisai against seven-time Grand Slam victor Venus Williams.

Serena was placed into the same quarter as Australian second seed Ashleigh Barty, the reigning French Open champion whose first match is against 77th-ranked Zarina Diyas of Kazakhstan.

'It is not the first time we have made the decisions that's good for the tournament, good for the players, good for the umpire to not be on those matches, ' said tournament Referee Soeren Friemel.

The entirety of the tournament will be broadcast on both ESPN and ESPN2.

Host Japan might not get to field its dream mixed doubles team for tennis at the next year's Summer Olympics.

That's because Kei Nishikori thinks playing with Naomi Osaka might just be too much tennis in Tokyo.

"I'm looking forward to the experience", Osaka said.

A Nishikori-Osaka duo not only would be expected to contend for a medal in Tokyo - it would be among the most popular pairings in Olympic tennis history.

US Open officials have made some changes in the officiating protocols for the upcoming US Open in an attempt to better inform fans about decisions made on court - a review stimulated partly by the officiating controversy that marred the US Open women's final past year.

Osaka said while she might watch players who are unfamiliar, she isn't one to analyze the draw beyond her next opponent.

They're also friends who have played video games together.
