US Open draw sets up possible semifinals of Djokovic vs Federer, Nadal vs Murray
NEW YORK (AP) ' Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer could meet in one U.S. Open semifinal, while defending champion Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray could meet in the other.
The draw for the year's last Grand Slam tournament is being completed Thursday. Play begins Monday.
The top-ranked Djokovic is 57-2 in 2011, and one of those losses came against Federer in the French Open semifinals.

The possible men's quarterfinals are No. 1-seeded Djokovic against No. 7 Gael Monfils, No. 3 Federer against No. 8 Mardy Fish, No. 2 Nadal against No. 5 David Ferrer, and No. 4 Murray against No. 6 Robin Soderling.
