Nadal practices early as US Open braces for Sharapova vs Halep

Over on the women's U.S. Open betting lines, Garbine Muguruza leads the way as a +600 favourite, ahead of Karolina Pliskova at +700, and Johanna Konta at +800.

Murray was seeded No. 2 at Flushing Meadows, where play begins Monday.

Zagoria also said the best time to go to the US Open is the first week, when you can walk around the outer courts and see several matches at once.

After having spent four and a half years without signing a single triumph in a Grand Slam tournament, and now well rooted in the thirties, the tennis player switzerland has a chance, starting Monday, to win a third title of the kind in 2017, this time to the worldwide of the United States. The pair share 34 Grand Slam wins between them.

When the draw was revealed, the major talking point was the fact that the duo could meet each other in the semi-final. 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.

United Nations calls for humanitarian cease-fire in Raqqa, Syria
The UN on Thursday called for a humanitarian pause to allow 20,000 trapped civilians to escape the besieged Syrian city of Raqqah. Hundreds of civilians have been killed and injured in attacks from all sides since these new offensives began.

"Of course I understand that's going to be great for our history". Finals are more special than semifinals, in that case. "I'm very excited playing here again".

"I've never had to take any time off because of my hip before, so we were hoping that by taking a few weeks off and resting and rehabbing and really reducing the load that I was putting through it, that I would be OK by the time US Open came around". "I mean, there's like, I don't know-60-plus guys in between us that don't agree we, in our section, should make it to the semis ... We have our work cut out there". You never know what can happen in the future, but playing again with those long trousers is not going to happen.

"Hopefully it will be a night session", he said.

"When I came here one week ago and I stepped on the site, a lot of great memories came back", said Kerber. Sharapova has beaten Halep all six times they have played and never lost in the first round of the U.S. Open (10-0).

Two days before the start of one of the biggest tennis championships in the world, world number two Andy Murray has withdrawn from the tournament.

"If Roger wins this, this will be one of the great stories in the last 50 years or ever". Also missing are Canadian Milos Raonic and Japan's Kei Nishikori, both sidelined with wrist injuries.

The other half of the men's draw is more wide open-the injured Andy Murray announced he was out on Saturday-and that's just what 20-year-old Alexander Zverev could have wanted most. Federer is ranked and seeded third.

No. 5 Marin Cilic, the 2014 champion, shifts to Murray's slot in the bracket and takes on the man who was supposed to face Murray in the first round, Tennys Sandgren of the United States.

After consulting the experts, Murray must now plan his next recovery steps but without the worry of a Grand Slam to factor into his decision until next January's Australian Open.
