Injury Withdrawal favourite to win US Open

Federer survives Tiafoe scare to advance at the US Open FACTBOX-Tennis-Rafael Nadal v Taro Daniel - player profiles

"I was thinking before the match - I have to play my rhythm, my speed, because I know with my speed I can compete with any of the top players and I did it". One set all, OK, it's a best-of-three set match.' Being in the fifth set, I said, 'It's great I'm still in the match. But he let that lead slip away.

Yet the Swiss legend committed 68 unforced errors and lost four break points on his serve Thursday. I was not able to hear the ball when hitting. He produced a cross-court forehand victor at an unbelievable angle to earn the chance, before converting it with a terrific forehand passing victor down the line.

When he had to come back out and serve, Tiafoe was a bit flat. While hurdling for a long shot from Federer, Youzhny landed on his leg wrong and stayed on the court for a while.

It's possible Federer's misstep against Tiafoe was simply due to rust. Standing second on the list now, Federer is still 18 victories behind table-topper Jimmy Connors. Only Jimmy Connors has more, with 98.

"I don't think I had the preparation I was hoping to get", Federer said after recording his 79th career victory at this tournament, which leaves him in joint second place alongside Andre Agassi and behind only Jimmy Connors (98 wins) on the all-time list.

Roger Federer was made to work in his first round at the US Open under the closed Arthur Ashe Stadium's roof in NY.

A woeful Federer volley into the tramlines seemed to sum up his afternoon, but the 19-time Grand Slam champion gathered himself sufficiently to edge through.

The patch also reworks the Rogue mechanics from patch 1.7, as well as allowing players to upgrade their favourite equipment. The co-op mode, called Resistance , is a Horde-like mode in which four players team up against increasingly hard enemies.

It was the second consecutive five-set match for the 19-time Grand Slam champion, who struggled against American Frances Tiafoe in the opening round. "It's just that I'm going a bit up and down in waves throughout the match", he added. He sat out the following week's tournament at Cincinnati.

'I still believe I'm going to pick up my game and become just more consistent because I'm not playing all that bad.

Dimitrov was a break up in both the first two sets but Rublev hit back, saving eight of 10 break points before taking his first match point with a brilliant forehand victor.

It's unfortunate that Miranda did go to sleep because Federer sent him a message after his second-round win. Tiafoe pushed Federer to a first-set tiebreaker when they faced each other in March at the Miami Masters before losing in two sets.

"I think my style of the game is just to play aggressive, to try to play my rhythm because I have quite, I think in my opinion, quite well rhythm, that I can play, compete with many good guys", Rublev said after upsetting Dimitrov.
