US Open: Roger Federer ousts teen Frances Tiafoe in five-set thriller

Roger Federer makes honest admission about his chances at the US Open

Nadal has returned to No. 1 on the men's side, though Federer has a chance to reclaim that spot.

Back at Roland Garros in 2008, Nadalcomplained about the scheduling when showers affected the first week of the tournament.

1 Rafa Nadal dismissed Dusan Lajovic 7-6 (6), 6-2, 6-2 to ease into the US Open second round on Tuesday, setting the Spaniard on a collision course for a long overdue Flushing Meadows showdown with Roger Federer.

"My hope and my belief is that it's only going to get better from here because every day that goes by puts me further away from what happened in Montreal".

"Under the roof, the noise stays a lot inside", he said.

Sharapova certainly fulfilled her prime-time billing, knocking out second seed Simona Halep in a first-round classic, and McEnroe believes tennis needs her. Andy was waiting as late as possible but if I were him I would have waited another day or so. "I was being too cautious with my movement".

Federer: Yes, if you gonna make it on tour, I'll make sure maybe I come back for you.

The win helped to improve his record in first round U.S. Open matches to 13-0.

Nadal and Federer will return to action Thursday for second-round matches, and the Wednesday night draw should see some competitive matches involving up-and-coming players as well as a few veterans. Normally you want to keep practising, keep trying until the last moment.

But that was enough.

Rafael Nadal is the yin to Roger Federer's yang - and not just on the tennis court where their styles could not be more disparate.

The result was as expected, but the process of securing that victory was as difficult as it's been at any point this season for Federer.

"Clearly he has nothing to lose but everything to gain", said the 36-year-old.

"I'm very happy that I'm feeling as good as I'm feeling right now", he said.

Some followers might argue that Nadal's 2012 French Open title was claimed in a pink shirt, but a closer look shows that it was more of a fuchsia.

"I expected worse because I heard comments like this".

Nadal struggled early in the match and uncharacteristically had more unforced errors (34) than winners (33). "I don't know how to control that or the umpire have to control that, because, yeah, at the same time is not fair only say that".

"It was tough at the beginning", Nadal admitted.

After 37 meetings all over the world, including in the final of each of the other three grand slams, a U.S. Open clash would complete the set.

He notched one career benchmark already this summer in defeating red-hot Alexander Zverev, the winner of five ATP titles this year, at a Masters 1000 tournament in Cincinnati before the U.S. Open.
