Organisers have stuck with the ATP world rankings for their seeding list, meaning Andy Murray, a winner of the Masters 1000 event in Cincinnati at the weekend, is at number four.

Murray, runner-up in New York in 2008, cannot meet those three until the semi-finals at the earliest.

The recent Montreal finalist, Mardy Fish, is the highest seeded American at number eight.

The draw takes place at 1700 BST on Thursday.
