Facing the world No. 76 opponent of Baena Carballes, Novak Djokovic played leisurely throughout the match, not facing any break-point and reaching the net 29 times. Historically, Djokovic has never lost in the opening round.

Baena energized in a set with the hope of making a surprise, but could only draw the score to 4-5. At the game of handing over the decision, the Spanish player cannot support the power from the other side of the net. Djokovic unleashed a winner with his left hand, opening two chances to win set-points. He successfully took advantage of the first opportunity.

In the next two sets, Djokovic won three more ball-to-play to go on with a 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 victory after an hour 52 minutes. The owner of 16 Grand Slam has the same winner score (25) with Baena Carballes, and even crashes himself more than the opponent (30 compared to 27). But the difference came in a series of durable balls, when Djokovic regularly took Carballes Baena into the difficulty and was forced to miss.

'It's great to be back in New York and playing at the highest level,' Djokovic said after the game. "I'm happy with my performance and look forward to the next game". The next opponent of Djokovic is Juan Ignacio Londero, who won Sam Querrey after four sets.

Along the quarterfinals with Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev is also easy to enter the second round after winning Praines Gunneswaran 6-4, 6-1, 6-2. Medvedev once beat Djokovic and took the throne at the Cincinnati Masters - the 1000 ATP tournament right before the US Open this year.

Predictions: Djokovic wins after 3 sets
