The Swiss Maestro, Roger Federer, will once again bid to clinch his 18th Grand Slam title during the US Open, which is scheduled to kick-start from August 25.
FedEx has recently defeated Spaniard David Ferrer to pocket his sixth Cincinnati title, which was also his 80th career crown.
Flushing Meadow was once his favourite hunting ground, as he went on to win five consecutive US Open titles there from 2004-2008.
Along with the Federer’s sublime form, another factor that might favour the Swiss is that reigning champion, Rafael Nadal, is not participating in the event due to a wrist injury. It makes FedEx one of the top contenders to win the title to complete his much awaited 18th major.
