Novak Djokovic Seeded NO. 1 in US Open

Novac Djokovic got his title as the top ranked tennis player after beating Roger Federer for the title in Wimbledon last month. The U.S. Tennis Association announced the seedings on Tuesday, with Djokovic at no. 1 and Federer at no. 2, meaning they could only meet in the final. Federer previously held the no. 3 spot, moving up after 2013 champion Rafael Nadal dropped out of last year’s Grand Slam tournament due to an injured wrist. This is Federer’s 14th consecutive time being seeded at the U.S. Open, making the 33-year old one of the tennis players with the longest ongoing streak, tying with Ivan Lendl and trailing only Jimmy Connors who had a record of 18. Djokovic has played at the last four finals, held in Flushing Meadows. He won the title in 2011 after losing to Nadal in 2010. Andy Murray, who beat Djokovic in 2012 is seeded 8th this year. The women’s seeding will be announced Wednesday, just in time for the tournament to start on Monday.
