  • Kuerten 'I could have played big matches against Rafael Nadal in Paris'

Stan Wawrinka or Kevin Anderson (if he is ready to play) should be his rival in the fourth round before the challenging quarter-final clash versus Daniil Medvedev, Fabio Fognini, Nikoloz Basilashvili or Taylor Fritz.

Speaking at the draw on Thursday, he said the Wimbledon final against Federer was one of the two most memorable matches of his career, along with the six-hour marathon against he won against Nadal in the 2012 Australian Open final. Williams owns a 19-2 record in their WTA Tour matchups and has won 18 in a row, but that lopsided number shouldn't do much to dampen the hype around what will be the marquee match of the opening round at Flushing Meadows, which starts Monday.

The defending champion Novak Djokovic is the top seed and the player to beat, seeking his 17th Major crown and to close the gap to Federer and Nadal in front of him even more.

Millman reached the US Open quarter-finals past year after knocking out Federer in the last 16. Nadal could potentially face fourth-seeded Dominic Thiem in the semifinals.
