Novak Djokovic has no problem and in just over an hour and a half of play, and three easy sets, he beats Alexandre Muller with the result of 6-0 6-2 6-3, in his first match of the US Open 2023 Match never questioned and a formal challenge for the Serbian champion.

The news of the day is that thanks to this victory Nole is back number one in the world, regardless of the result that Carlos Alcaraz will do in these US Open. After the tournament we will have a new number one and the Serbian will be back on top, perhaps with the aim of finishing the season in front of everyone.

During the second set, Muller stunned the crowd at Arthur Ashe Stadium with a sensational point. During a rally, put in difficulty by a dropshots and a following lob by Nole, Muller managed to overturn the point with a super tweener, that put the Serbian in difficulty, to then close the point with a cross forehand.

Here's the video released on the US Open X account:

The other matches

No problem for Stefanos Tsitsipas either, who easily wins against the returning Milos Raonic, back from a few weeks in the circuit.

There are no chances for the Canadian and the Greek appeared calm and in good condition, now the favorite for the eventual semifinal against Djokovic. Instead, the endless crisis of Felix Auger Aliassime continues, another top seed who greets the tournament.

The match wasn't easy but the Canadian falls in four sets against McDonald and looks like a distant relative of the handsome tennis player we've admired several times in the past. For Felix the reaction of pride in the second set where he initially equalized the scores but then collapsed in the last two sets, exiting the tournament awkwardly.

In the other matches, the Americans who can smile at home in front of their fans did very well, only Sebastian Korda out who gives in five sets and after a long battle (the American was also bruised) against the Hungarian Marton Fucsovics. Ok and second round to what Stricker and Gaston.
