Former champions Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray face a potential tough US Open quarter-final after the draw made Thursday for the final Grand Slam of 2014. World number one Djokovic, who won the title at Flushing Meadows in 2011, is the top seed in the tournament, which is missing injured defending champion Rafael Nadal. Eighth-seeded Murray, the 2012 US Open winner who hasn't won a title since his 2013 Wimbledon triumph, could face dangerous French ninth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the round of 16. Meanwhile, second-seeded Roger Federer has a lighter-looking path, with seventh-seeded Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov his scheduled quarter-final foe.
The St. Louis police chief has released 911 audio, surveillance video and cellphone video of the fatal shooting of a knife-wielding man, acknowledging that tensions in nearby Ferguson have created a need for greater transparency on officer-involved shootings.
