New York: Roger Federer is seeded No. 7 for the US Open, his first slot outside the top three at any Grand Slam tournament in a decade.

Federer's ranking dropped two slots to seventh on Monday, and the US Tennis Association's seedings followed the ATP standings.

Federer's record 17 Grand Slam titles include five at the US Open. He's among five former champions in the men's field, including No. 1-seeded Novak Djokovic, No. 2 Rafael Nadal, and No. 3 Andy Murray, who won the 2012 title.
