US Open Men’s Draw: Djokovic Could Face Federer In Semifinal Rematch

NEW YORK (AP) — Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer could meet in one U.S. Open semifinal, while defending champion Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray could meet in the other.

The draw for the year’s last Grand Slam tournament is being completed Thursday. Play begins Monday.

The top-ranked Djokovic is 57-2 in 2011, and one of those losses came against Federer in the French Open semifinals.

A year ago at Flushing Meadows, Djokovic beat five-time U.S. Open champion Federer in the semifinals.

The possible men’s quarterfinals are No. 1-seeded Djokovic against No. 7 Gael Monfils, No. 3 Federer against No. 8 Mardy Fish, No. 2 Nadal against No. 5 David Ferrer, and No. 4 Murray against No. 6 Robin Soderling.
