Murray is looking to go one better than 2008 when he reached the final
By Andy Murray
World number four and British number one
I really enjoy coming to New York, it's a great city, and after the last few weeks in LA, Toronto and Cincinnati I'm feeling good - but playing the US Open is a very different experience.
In terms of my match fitness, things are good but a lot can change in a few days and I'm just hoping that I go into the tournament feeling like I am now.
It's pretty relaxed over here and it helps that I know New York well these days.
My form has been good, especially in Toronto... towards the end of that week, I was definitely more aggressive
I've stayed at the same place in Manhattan for the last few years, so I know the restaurants and salad bars we go to as well as some of the people there and at the hotel. It's great to see a few familiar faces.
Since getting here I've done a few sponsor things and we've been out for some decent meals. We've had sushi a couple of nights, while there's a salad bar across the road and an Italian right next door.
It's good to mix it up and there is such a great variety of places. You really can have whatever you want, whatever time of day you want.
I also had my first ever facial, which was a bit unusual. When we arrived from Cincinnati, we all decided to go for a spa. I wasn't doing the bookings but I had a massage, too.
I fell asleep during the facial, so I don't know if I enjoyed it or not. I think dozing off means I did! I was either really tired or it was very relaxing, probably a bit of both.
Flushing Meadows is out in Queen's, so during the journey from Manhattan I've been working on my Fantasy Football team. I've had a bit of a shocker so far.
Last week, I'd selected John Carew, who missed a penalty for Aston Villa, and Wayne Rooney, who got sick and missed Manchester United's game with Fulham. Then I changed my whole team.
You can use a wildcard twice a season and I've used one of them after only two weeks. My team would have been a lot better had I just left it alone.

I'm in a league with a few other tennis players and some of the guys back home. To say it's competitive is an understatement.
It's a great source of banter, though, and you tend to get more than a few messages after a poor week. It's tough to win and you need a bit of luck but I won last year and I'm gunning for title number two.
Back on the court, my form has been good,
especially in Toronto.
Towards the end of that week, I was definitely more aggressive.
Every time I've played against Rafael Nadal, that's the way I've tried to play. Against Roger Federer, I tried to be a bit more aggressive than normal, too, and it worked well.
It was something I had thought about before but you sometimes have to adjust mid-match and switch styles.
The surface does help me here. I've been playing on hard courts since I was seven or eight years old, so it's the surface I feel most comfortable on.
In terms of my coaching situation,
the plan was always to wait until after the tournament to make any decisions. I'll have a think about who I want to work with and what structure I want to work with and just play it by ear but Alex Corretja is out with me here in New York.
As for my opening match, I don't know too much about Lukas Lacko. He's almost the same age as me, so we've sort of grown up together in tennis since we were 13 or 14.
He has a good game, decent serve and solid ground strokes. He's pretty talented and it will be tough but I can't wait to get started.
