Aljaz Bedene heads into the US Open short of match practice after missing several of the hard court swing of tournaments this summer.
The Slovenian-born Bedene, who represents Great Britain, is currently world No 48 after climbing back up the rankings this year as he closes in on improving on his career best world No 45.
Bedene enjoyed a purple patch of form earlier in the season which saw him go on a 16-match winning streak, which included back-to-back titles on the second-tier Challenger Tour in April.
However his bid to win a maiden ATP title was thwarted by a straight sets defeat to Lucas Pouille at the Hungarian Open in Budapest later that month.
Bedene, who is now British No 3, last played at the German Tennis Championship in Hamburg in July where he lost to Next Gen star Karen Khachanov in the last-16.
He has never ventured beyond the second round of the US Open, but will hope to amend that stat later this month.
