Third seed Andy Murray will play Russia's Alex Bogomolov in the first round of the US Open and was placed in Roger Federer's half when the draw was made on Thursday afternoon.

Murray and Bogomolov have met three times before, with the Scot winning twice, but he did lose their first match at the Miami Masters last year.

In the first round, world No 1 Federer will face American Donald Young, who this week ended a run of 17 straight defeats by winning his first-round match against Argentina's Leonardo Mayer in Winston Salem.
