  • Djokovic to open up US Open against Carballes Baena

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.

The Japanese won her first Grand Slam title in a controversial final victory over Williams a year ago. They met in the final at Wimbledon, where Djokovic won in a fifth-set tiebreaker.

Top seed Djokovic, who saved two match points in the All England Club final to deny Federer a record ninth title at the grasscourt championships, will start his campaign against 76th-ranked Roberto Carballes Baena in NY next week.

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.
