The US Open draw is out. Rafael Nadal’s first round match is against Ryan Harrison. Winner could get Pospisil in round 2. In what would be a re-match of last week’s Cincinnati final, Rafa could meet John Isner in the fourth round.
Federer, Verdasco, Kohlschreiber, Isner, Nishikori, Robredo, and Querrey are in Rafa’s quarter. Gasquet, Tursunov, Lopez, Raonic, Janovicz, Tipsarevic, Gulbis, and Ferrer are in his half.
If the men play to seed the quarter-final line up will be: Novak Djokovic v Juan Martin del Potro, Andy Murray v Tomas Berdych, David Ferrer v Richard Gasquet, Rafael Nadal v Roger Federer.
Main draw play begins on Monday, 26 August in New York.
Yey!! I hope Rafa keeps hanging in there with all his opponents. His last 2 tournament wins have been on hard court and they have been a knock-out, so I believe Rafa can prove the naysayers wrong when he wins the US OPEN this year!! I am a huge tennis fan, and whoever wins this year, I will be satisfied, but (secretly) hoping for RAFA win!! Go teams go!!
isn’t Davydenko also in Rafa’s quarter? time to even up the h2h!
yes, rafa can make it til he is the champion, the lord will bless the humble person like him, God bless u rafa!!!!!
I Rafa and the US. OPEN YEA, Vamoooooos Rafa!
Dear Rafa, There aren´t any words to describe someone like you play tennis, as such the good and generous Person you are. From The Canaries, please, get my best friendly regards. C. Javier
Rafa is our Champion!
I agree with this other comment Rafa will sail through and win the title Vamos Rafa!!!
It doesn’t matter what the draw is in Flushing Meadows. We know that Rafa is going to give every game, every set, every match 150% effort, Can’t wait!!!
