US Open: Rafael Nadal safely moves into the second round

He also has not commented on the scheduling, which has gone his way; yet in the past has when it hasn't he has made a fuss about it.

"I was maybe a bit anxious from the beginning with my back issue, but eventually I was able to let go", said Federer.

"That's why I say it's odd. It is something that is a little bit odd and hard to understand".

Zverev has been viewed as one of the up-and-coming players in men's tennis, and he helped secure that status when he defeated Roger Federer at the Rogers Cup championship match in Montreal earlier this summer.

"So important thing is be through and that's what I did today".

Instead, fifth seed Marin Cilic was moved into Murray's slot, and McEnroe believes criticism should be directed towards the International Tennis Federation's rules rather than the Scot.

Yet for a set and a half he more than matched the world number one, playing with fearless aggression and intelligence.

The issue here is that according to the rules the number one to four seeds are all equal.

Yes, plenty - including Nadal himself, who pulled out of Wimbledon in 2009 on the Friday before the tournament started, unable to defend his title because of the pain he was suffering in both knees. The five-time champion, even after his first-round scare, should seal a straight set win over his familiar foe.

Why Roger Federer is nicknamed after a farm animal? It's a stupid rule that needs to be fixed. Because, at the end of the third set, Youzhny figuratively had Federer handcuffed, straitjacketed and locked in an underwater cage. The other favourite, Rafael Nadal, also began his campaign with a victory Tuesday against Serbia's Dusan Lajovic. Nadal, in contrast, has won 73 titles in his career and has 856 match wins, including 50 this year.

At night in Ashe, No. 15 Madison Keys of the US compiled a 32-9 edge in winners and moved into the second round by beating Elise Mertens of Belgium 6-3, 7-6 (6). The match on Tuesday was played under the Arthur Ashe Stadium roof at Flushing Meadows amid heavy rain here, reports Efe.

To make matter worse, Daniel's first-round match was interrupted by rain on Tuesday and was only completed on Wednesday, August 30, robbing the youngster of a day's rest. "I was not able to hear the ball when you are hitting, no?"

The U.S. Tennis Association says the U.S. Open box office has sold out of all tickets - including grounds passes - for all day sessions from Thursday through Sunday. He did so against Tommy Paul, the young American who has had a breakthrough summer in North America. It seems logical if anything.
