  • US Open 2017: Players under the most pressure on the women's draw

You know who's not shedding any crocodile tears over attrition at the Open? She has let many big matches slip, which has prevented her from winning the World No.1 ranking and a first Grand Slam title in the process.

"So it's a little bit of a different situation".

Defending champion Angelique Kerber said: "She's back and I think she practiced good the last few weeks and she's ready to be back". "So, just happy for that".

World number one Nadal, back on top after more than three years, captured his 10th French Open in June for his 15th Grand Slam title while third-ranked Federer took the Australian Open and Wimbledon crowns, raising his record Slam total to 19.

Who would have thunk it, these two being the dominant men in 2017, each patched together by surgeons, borne aloft on a gusting second wind? "The tennis doesn't change that much". Federer has taken their past four meetings, including the Aussie epic. "It just sounds totally surreal to me", Federer said. "Is obvious, no? I am not that way (keen on a Federer clash)".

Many has been said about Sharapova in the a year ago. The Russian, a five-time Grand Slam champion, returned to the tour in April but her anticipated comeback hasn't been what fans expected as injuries have kept her away from the center stage.

Tottenham Hotspur: Mauricio Pochettino disappointed with late lapse in concentration after Burnley
As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 2/9 for Tottenham Hotspur to win against Burnley on Sunday. "That is football. But Wood, a £15million signing from Leeds last week, made an immediate impact on his Premier League debut.

"I know you want to hear the other way, that I would love to play him".

Whoever wins will receive a massive boost to their self-belief and the US Open, shorn of Serena Williams and several other stars, will be delighted to have such a marquee match kicking off its opening night.

If Muguruza plays similarly to how she did in the Cincinnati final, then she will be well on her way.

Now with her second Major semi-final behind her, she will have to come through the testing Halep quarter, beginning with the 77-ranked Aleksandra Krunic but progressing to Goerges, Cibuklova and Halep.

Thirty-seven times they've drawn a match bead on each other.

Federer had not won more than two matches consecutively against Nadal in a decade before they met in this year's Australian Open final, and never more than two.

Apple gets $208M in tax breaks to build in Iowa
The Cupertino-based iPhone giant is earmarking US$1.3bn for the construction of a new data centre in Waukee, Iowa. Apple did not respond to a question on how many data centers it has in the United States.

The prospect of a Nadal-Federer final is now out the window. He last swung a racket in competitive mode at the Roger's Cup in Montreal a fortnight ago, losing in straight sets to hotshot Next Gen stud Alexander Zverev while clearly enfeebled by a back issue that he only acknowledged days later.

"If I am in semifinals, I prefer to play against another [player]" Nadal said. "That's why I think it's open for us eight". I mean, there is, like, I don't know, 60-plus players in between us that don't agree in our section (of the draw) that we should make it to the semis. We have our work cut out there.

The U.S. Open will be played August 28-Sept.

The tennis world has spoken.

Q. Will you, as a fan, watch Simona play Maria? And we'll still be injured because now we're not playing enough. Enjoy, once I get out of the tennis court, try and enjoy the city, because it's very, 24/7 alive. Even if she lost my bet in the French Open, I think she had more matches and more consistent this year playing, definitely, yes.

That's life. That's luck of the lousy sort.
