Britain's Andy Murray will begin the defence of his US Open title against Michael Llodra of France.
Murray, who is seeded third for the tournament at Flushing Meadows in New York, is in the same half of the draw as world number one Novak Djokovic.
Llodra, 33, is ranked 49th in the world and has been beaten by the 26-year-old Scot in all three previous meetings.
British women's number one Laura Robson, 19, is paired with 32-year-old Lourdes Dominguez Lino of Spain.
Argentine Juan Martin Del Potro,
winner of the 2009 tournament,
is also in Murray's half of the draw and would be a potential quarter-final opponent for Djokovic, who starts against Lithuanian Ricardas Berankis, ranked 126.
Murray, who arrived in New York last Friday, is relishing the prospect of defending a Grand Slam title for the first time.
"It's obviously tough, it's a new experience for me," he said. "This week has been a bit busier than normal, there's been a few more demands on my time.
"I'm looking forward to it. I want the tournament to get started now. I've enjoyed my tennis the last few weeks, but now it's time for business.
"This is a huge tournament for me. I love this tournament and I'll try to have a good run."
The other half of the draw could see a quarter-final between 17-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer, seeded seventh, and long-time rival Rafael Nadal, the second seed.

It is the first time Robson has been seeded for a Grand Slam, and she is the first British woman to be a seeded in such an event since Jo Durie at the 1987 Australian Open.
