The US Open Championship might be the last Grand Slam event of 2013, but it doesn't lack the action and drama tennis fans seek for. Five-time US Open winner Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Agnieszka Radwanska will all hit the hard court on the first day, while Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Victoria Azarenka are scheduled to play on the second day.

What to Watch in the First Round - U.S. Open
Rafael Nadal vs. Ryan Harrison
During his run in Cincinnati, Rafael Nadal was asked who will be the future of tennis five or 10 years from now? And Nadal quickly answered Ryan Harrison. The 21-year-old Harrison had a rough season, reaching the second round of a Grand Slam event twice in 2013. On the contrary, Nadal is having a sensational year with nine titles around his belt - including five Masters 1000 crowns. Nadal and Harrison met earlier this year with the Spaniard dominating the American at Indian Wells.
Roger Federer vs. Grega Žemlja
Roger Federer is out to prove he can still play at a high level, but he has first to silence his critics following a series of losses against unheralded opponents. Federer has a 2-0 head-to-head advantage over Zemlja, but he needs to come up with an impressive performance to get him pumped up in the tourney.
Serena Williams vs. Franceska Schiavone
Serena Williams was denied of a title in Cincinnati, but that doesn't mean one of the greatest American female players isn't a huge favourite anymore. Williams is expected to steamroll her way into the second week, playing a relatively weaker draw. Yet, the experience and grit of Schiavone should not be discounted. After all, she also won a Grand Slam title.
