Djokovic wins US Open first round 3-0

World No. 2 Novak Djokovic (36, Serbia) defeated No. 84 Alexandre Muller (26, France) in straight sets, 3-0, on the first day of the US Open, the final tennis major of the year. The victory secured Djokovic’s return to the world No. 1 ranking.

In addition to Djokovic, men’s world No. 5 Kasper Lourdes (25-NOR) and No. 7 Stefanos Tsitsipas (25-GRE) also breezed through the first round. Women’s World No. 1 Iga Szibiontek (22-Poland), No. 4 Elena Rybakina (24-Kazakhstan) and No. 6 Coco Goff (19-U.S.A.) also advanced to the second round. There were also upsets. Men’s World No. 4 Holger Lune (20-DEN) fell 1-3 to No. 63 Roberto Carvajes Baena (30-SP), while women’s World No. 8 Maria Sakari (28-GRE) lost 0-2 to No. 71 Rebecca Masarova (24-SP). Men’s No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz (20-Spain) and women’s No. 2 Arina Savalenka (25-Belarus) will be making their first appearances in 30 days.토토사이트

South Korean tennis sensation Kwon Soon-woo (26-104), making his six-month return after suffering a shoulder injury in February, was unable to overcome the barrier of World No. 30 Christopher Eubanks (27-USA) in the first round of the men’s singles, falling 1-3. Kwon, who was seeded second and then dramatically booked his ticket to the main draw due to top-ranked players withdrawing, was looking to match his best-ever US Open result (second round) but went down on his knees in the first game. Han (No. 31-241), who advanced through qualifying, will face this year’s Wimbledon winner and world No. 9 Marketa Bondrowshova (24-Czech Republic) on Tuesday in the women’s singles main draw.
