The draws for the U.S. Open were announced on Thursday.

The draw for the 2012 U.S. Open was announced Thursday. No. 23 seed Mardy Fish from Edina, Minn., can get as far as Round 4 before running into No. 1 seed Roger Federer.

Fish drew unranked Go Soeda from Japan in the first round. The winner will play the winner between the first-round matchup of Nikolay Davidenko and a to-be-determined qualifier. No. 22-ranked Florian Mayer of Germany is the highest seed Fish could play before reaching a potential Federer encounter.

Federer might also need to beat No. 3 Andy Murray and No. 2 Novak Djokovic to win his sixth U.S. Open crown. Federer could face Murray, an opponent he's faced in both the finals of Wimbledon and the Olympics, in the semfinals and Djokovic, the defending champion, in the finals.

The two-week tournament begins Monday starting at 10 a.m. CT.
