Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza is the current ante-post favourite for the women's singles title at Flushing Meadow at 9/2, but she will need to improve on her poor US Open record if she is to pick up her third Grand Slam title.
"I did pretty much everything that I could to get myself ready here and took a number of weeks off after Wimbledon", he said.
"I don't want to put any extra pressure (on myself)", the Czech told a news conference. "I will just try to handle it. I will try to take it as a positive that I was playing so well here last year".
"It was actually progressing okay the last few days, but it's too sore for me to win the tournament and ultimately that's what I was here to try and do". "It's been a great year, and I hope we can keep playing like this".
Three-time major champion Wawrinka recently had surgery on his left knee, 12-time major champion Djokovic has a bad right elbow and 2014 U.S. Open runner-up Nishikori has an injured right wrist. "A lot of points and games to play, so now is not the moment to think about that". "I have beaten them in Masters events", Zverev said.

Despite their long rivalry, which is enjoying a surprise revival this year, none of their 37 previous meetings have been at Flushing Meadows - where they are seeded to meet in this year's semi finals. Thus, they are on a collision course for the semis as both aim a deep run at this tournament. She has had a good lead in to the US Open with a win in Stanford and a third set tie break defeat to Muguruza in Cincinnati.
In fact, Nadal might prefer the moment never arrive at all. It's easily acceptable, but you're [players are] feeling it, especially the first few steps when you get out of bed, all these things. King got a ton of support during the qualifers last week - with a pocket of Barbadians living in Queens.
On the top half of the bracket, the quarterfinals could be No. 1 Karolina Pliskova against 2004 US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova; and defending champion Angelique Kerber or French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko against No. 4 Elina Svitolina or No. 15 Madison Keys of the United States. This will be a huge opportunity for him, and Marin Cilic to get to the final since those two are definitely the favorites to do so.
"There are 60-plus players in between us that don't agree in our section that we should make it to the semis".
"If I am in semi-finals, not, I prefer to play against another one", the Spaniard said as quoted on ESPN when asked if he wanted to face Federer.
