US OPEN '18: Federer tries to end decade drought in New York

  • 039;Everyone is grateful to Roger Federer for Grand Slam prize money'- Murray

"That's anyway how I felt way back when, coming to NY".

Now the second youngest player in the world top 100, the 19-year-old moved into the top 50 for the first time in his short career with a run to the Citi Open final this month.

The Australian, who has spent almost half his life living in Spain, made his grand slam debut in Melbourne previous year and reached the third round of Wimbledon last month before running into Rafael Nadal.

"So the last two years - especially two years ago when I couldn't play at all - have just been hard".

"Not that it wasn't a year ago, but Wimbledon was key for me".

Roger Federer heads to the US Open as third favourite behind longtime rivals Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal after a season that has nose-dived since he won the Australian Open at the start of the year.

"It's not like, God, the US Open never worked out for me".

Story about man urinating on 5-year-old girl was fabricated
Although the suspect was not at home when police first visited, he was present during their second visit and he was arrested. Parents of the young girl, who was not identified by name, called the police about 20 minutes after the incident.

The 37-year-old was, if not happy with the draw, at least resigned.

He noted that eighth-seeded Grigor Dimitrov had the bad luck to draw three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka, unseeded as he returns from injury, in the first round - a rematch of the Wimbledon first-rounder that saw Dimitrov sent packing by the Swiss. "But I'm happy that my level is there".

It has been a decade since Federer won the last of his five titles at Flushing Meadows and former player Chris Evert says he will need to create a miracle to claim the Open-era record by winning his sixth in September.

Serena's opener comes against 60th-ranked Magda Linette of Poland, while Venus faces a tricky first-round match against Svetlana Kuznetsova, whose two major championships include the 2004 US Open.

Federer has continued to impress on grass but less so in NY.

"For a long period I think I was not losing much, and when I came to the Open, I had all the answers for all the guys, all my opponents, all conditions, wind, you know, night, day", he said. "So I think as an overall theme, maybe we will see better tennis here in NY".
