ROGER FEDERER VS SUMIT NAGAL PREVIEW

The gap in experience between Federer and Nagal could not be greater ahead of their match. Nagal has never won a tour-level match (0-4) while Federer has won 1,223 tour-level matches (1223-266).

Federer is 18-0 in US Open first round and is 61-0 in Grand Slam opening matches since 2003 Roland Garros.

But Nagal is delighted to have the opportunity to face Federer.

“It feels amazing,” Nagal told ATPTour.com. The last three Grand Slams I played I was in qualies and I didn’t win a round.

“Playing the main draw of a Slam feels great. It’s what everyone dreams of. And to play against Federer, I’ve wanted this. I was telling my friends this yesterday. When people told me that Federer plays a qualifier, I was thinking how much I’ve always wanted this.”
