NEW YORK (AP) - Rafael Nadal wants a U.S. Open title, of course. It is, after all, the only Grand Slam trophy he has yet to win.

Still, the No. 1-ranked and No. 1-seeded Nadal insists he is not consumed by thoughts of needing to leave Flushing Meadows with a championship two weeks from now.

Only 24 years old, Nadal already owns eight major titles _ five at the French Open, two at Wimbledon and one at the Australian Open. He never has been past the semifinals at the U.S. Open and says he hopes to play well at the tournament that begins Monday, but he is not obsessed with winning in New York.

He has played rival Roger Federer 21 times overall, including in seven Grand Slam finals, but they never have met at the U.S. Open.
