Novak Djokovic is the world's number one player once again.

Last night's straight sets win over Alexandre Muller at the first round of the US Open sees the Serb return to the summit, replacing Carlos Alcaraz.

Despite dropping just five games, Djokovic says there's still plenty of room for improvement.

"I think I could have served well in the second, I dropped the level of my serve and had to work for my points a bit more.

"I think I played great from the beginning to the end, some hiccups, but I like the level and hopefully I can maintain it in the next round as well."

In the women's draw, home favourite Coco Gauff is safely through after a win in three sets over Laura Siegemund.

And former world number one Caroline Wozniacki made a winning return with a straight sets victory against Tatiana Prozorova.

Among those in action today are the number three seed Jessica Pegula who takes on Camilla Giorgi, while in the men's draw third seed Daniil Medvedev faces Attila Balazs  of Hungary.
