2009 U.S. Open Men’s Draw
"Roger Federer, who recently won the French Open, surpassed Pete Sampras's record for most men's major titles and became a father to twin girls, earned the number one seed at this year's U.S. Open.
"According to Joshua Robinson of The Times, for Federer's chief rival, the third-seeded Rafael Nadal, the tournament could be tricky from the outset. Until this week, Federer and Nadal had been the top two seeds at every major tournament since the 2005 Open. But Andy Murray, who lost in the final last year, earned this year's No. 2 seed behind Federer at Nadal's expense. Nadal will face Richard Gasquet, who returned to the ATP World Tour last month after failing a drug test earlier in the year. And it will not get easier for Nadal if he advances, with potential matchups against the Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Murray and Juan Martín del Potro."
