Novak Djokovic at the US Open - US Open 2023 order of play: today's matches, full schedule and how to watch on TV

Djokovic is eyeing up a 24th grand slam title – Shuttershock/SARAH YENESEL

Novak Djokovic will start his campaign for a 24th grand slam title when the US Open begins today. The man most likely to stop him is Carlos Alcaraz, who starts on the other side of the draw.

If Djokovic wins his first-round match, against Frenchman Alexandre Muller, he will overtake Alcaraz to become world number one again. Alcaraz, the top seed, starts his campaign tomorrow against Dominik Koepfer of Germany.

In the women’s event, Iga Swiatek, the defending champion, gets things under way on Monday against Rebecca Peterson of Sweden.

Injury-hit Andy Murray will start his campaign against world No 71 Corentin Moutet after landing in Carlos Alcaraz’s quarter of the draw.

Other stand-out matches on the opening day are:

  • Stefanos Tsitsipas against Milos Raonic, who only recently returned to the tour after a two-year absence;

  • Elena Rybakina, who has been struggling with illness and injury, against Marta Kostyuk;

  • Lily Miyazaki, the British No 7, who is playing only her second major after becoming the first Briton to come through qualifying since Emma Raducanu – she is up against Margarita Betova;

  • Denmark’s world No 4 Holger Rune against Roberto Carballes Baena;

  • Coco Gauff, the new Cincinnati champion, against qualifier Laura Siegemund.

Men’s draw in full

Injury-hit Andy Murray will start his campaign against world No 71 Corentin Moutet after landing in Carlos Alcaraz’s quarter of the draw.

Murray has been in a race to be fit in New York, after pulling out of his last-16 match of the Cincinnati Open against Jannik Sinner in Toronto last week due to an abdominal strain – only the seventh walkover of his long career. He also withdrew from Cincinnati thereafter in an attempt to recover in time for the final major of the year.
