Riske up first in New York

Ana has been drawn to face American world No.44 Alison Riske in the first round of the U.S. Open, which begins on Monday.

Ana and Riske have met once before, with Ana triumphing 7-5, 7-6(2) in Auckland on New Year's Eve 2013.

If she reaches round two, Ana will take on either Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic or Austria's Yvonne Meusburger. 29th seed Casey Dellacqua of Australia is a possible third round opponent.

In round four Ana is seeded to meet 12th-seeded Italian Flavia Pennetta, while top seed and tournament favourite Serena Williams is a likely quarter-final adversary.

Possible semi-final opponents include third seed Petra Kvitova and seventh seed Eugenie Bouchard.

The leading seeds in the bottom half of the draw, whom Ana cannot meet until the final, are No.2 Simona Halep, No.4 Agnieszka Radwanska, No.5 Maria Sharapova and No.6 Angelique Kerber.
