The U.S. Open draw was announced on Thursday, highlighted by a potential semifinal matchup, and men's Olympic final rematch, between Roger Federer and Andy Murray.

Federer, ranked No. 1 in the world and a winner of 17 Grand Slam singles titles, will be in search of his sixth U.S. Open championship when matches start on Monday. His first-round matchup is against Atlanta native Donald Young.

Murray is currently No. 4 in the ATP rankings, and is riding high after an upset of Federer in the men's Olypmic final earlier this month. His first round match pits him against Russia's Alex Bogomolov Jr.

Overland Park's own Jack Sock will open against No. 22 seed, Florian Meyer of Germany. The 19-year-old Sock's last ATP appearance was at the BB&T open in July, which saw him upset No. 7 seed Bogomolov Jr. and advance to the quarterfinals where he lost to fellow American John Isner.
