Roger Federer has been confirmed as the top seed for this year's US Open, with Andy Murray in his half of the draw.
The Swiss ace has recaptured top spot in the world rankings after an impressive run of form over the last couple of months, which has seen him collect a seventh Wimbledon title.
Federer goes into the final Grand Slam event of the year as the player to beat, but he does face a tough journey if he is to make the final at Flushing Meadows.
The 31-year-old will face a dangerous opponent in the first round, when he's due to face American youngster, Donald Young, who reached round four in New York in 2011.
If he progresses, as expected, Federer could play sixth-seed, Tomas Berdych, in the quarter-finals, with Murray likely to be waiting in the last four.
The British number one, seeded three, will face Russia's Alex Bogomolov in round one - a player Murray has beaten in their last two hard-court meetings.
The other half of the draw will have defending champion, Novak Djokovic, in it, along with fourth seed David Ferrer of Spain.
Djokovic has not been able to hit the heights of 2011, but the Australian Open winner will be fancied to reach the final after gaining a favourable draw.
He continues to dominate the online sport betting, coming in at 11/8 for the title with most bookmakers.
The Serbian will face Paolo Lorenzi of Italy in the first round, but could face the dangerous former winner, Juan Martin del Potro, seeded seven, in the last eight.
Del Potro must first progress past fellow countryman, David Nalbandian, in round one, while Ferrer will face big serving South African, Kevin Anderson, first up.
John Isner is the highest-placed American player in the seedings (9th), while Andy Roddick (20th) and Sam Querrey (27th) are the other two home players to be seeded.
