Djokovic top seed at U.S. Open, Federer No. 2Top-ranked Novak Djokovic is seeded No. 1 for the U.S. Open, and five-time champion Roger Federer is No. 2, meaning they could meet only in the final.
Djokovic beat Federer for the title at Wimbledon last month. The U.S. Tennis Association announced the seedings Tuesday.
Federer moved up one spot from his No. 3 ranking because 2013 champion Rafael Nadal withdrew from the year’s last Grand Slam tournament with an injured right wrist.
