"It will be a tough match, everybody knows that."

Switzerland's Federer has won the last three meetings between the two tennis giants after Agassi captured the first three.

The last time they met was in the final in Indian Wells earlier this year with Federer coming out on top 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.

"It is definitely nice to play him, especially in New York," Federer said.

"I played him in Houston. I've played him in Indian Wells, so now we're heading to the biggest stadium in the world, which is nice.
