Djokovic, who returned to No. 1 in the world, broke the record for the longest time in 390 weeks

Novak Djokovic (Serbia, world No. 2) won the first round of the 2023 U.S. Open and became the world’s No. 1 again.

Djokovic beat Alexandre Mueller (France, world No. 84), who made his U.S. Open debut, 6-0 6-2 6-3 in an hour and 35 minutes at Arthur Asi Stadium, Billie Jean King’s National Tennis Court in New York on the 29th.

Djokovic was refused entry to the U.S. last year due to non-vaccination of the Corona vaccine, and did not participate in the U.S. Open, and there are no ranking points to defend, so ranking points accumulate for each victory. On the other hand, Carlos Alcaras (Spain), the current world’s No. 1 player, can maintain his current ranking point only if he wins at least as a winner last year.

Djokovic, who was only 20 points away from Alkaras, will return to the top of the world rankings on September 11 with 45 points in a one-round victory. Djokovic, who holds the longest No. 1 record in 389 weeks, is set to break the record at 390 weeks.

If Djokovic wins this tournament, he will be able to win 24 Grand Slams for the first time since the Open Era (1968, tennis professionalization era).

Djokovic will face Bernabe Zapata Mirales (Spain, 76th in the world) in the second round. 스포츠토토
