NEW YORK (Reuters) - Roger Federer will begin the defense of his U.S. Open crown next week against Ivo Minar of the Czech Republic, tournament officials said on Wednesday.

The top seed will be bidding for his sixth grand slam title having won his third consecutive Wimbledon crown last month.

Women's world number one and top seed Maria Sharapova of Russia faces a tough first round match against Eleni Daniilidou of Greece.

Twice former champion Andre Agassi of the United States opens his campaign against Romanian Razvan Sabau.

The U.S. Open will run from Monday until September 11.
