US Open: Night time is right time for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal

Five-time champion Federer clinched another night victory in New York on Saturday with a comfortable 6-3, 6-0, 6-2 win over French world number 63 Adrian Mannarino. Nadal, the 2010 champion, had earlier cruised past Croatia's Ivan Dodig, 6-4, 6-3, 6-3, to set-up a last-16 clash with Germany's Philipp Kohlschreiber.

New York: Roger Federer is eager to rekindle his rivalry with Rafael Nadal for the first time at the US Open in what would be a blockbuster clash at night, when he has been virtually unbeatable.

The 17-time major winner could face Nadal in the quarter-finals with the dream match-up almost certain to take place under the lights of Arthur Ashe Stadium, where Federer has won 22 of 23 matches.

His only loss in the traditionally raucous evening sessions came at the hands of Juan Martin Del Potro in the 2009 final.
