World number one Daniil Medvedev began his defense of the US Open title by defeating American Stefan Kozlov in sweltering conditions at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The Russian had an inconsistent approach to Flushing Meadows but returned to great form on the court, where he won his first Grand Slam title a year ago, sending 10 aces and neutralizing Kozlov’s serve.
The meeting lasted 2 hours and 1 minute. Medvedev fired 10 times, made three double faults and converted eight break points out of 16. Kozlov scored no aces, seven double faults, and converted two out of five break points.
Medvedev’s opponent in the second round will be French representative Arthur Rinderknesh (58th racket of the world).
