The defending champion and the current World No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz will be up against South African Lloyd Harris in the 2nd round of the US Open 2023. Carlos will be hoping to become the first player to defend a US Open title after Roger Federer had done it in 2008.

The defending champion has been in a red hot form recently, and his recent results suggest the same. He was the first player outside of the Big 4 to win a Wimbledon title after 2003. He had defeated 7-time Wimbledon champion, Novak Djokovic, to win the title with the score line of 1-6, 7-6, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4.

On the other hand, Lloyd Harris won the first-round match against Argentine, Guido Pella in straight sets. He won the match with the score line of 7-6, 6-4, 6-4. The current world number 177 last played at the Cincinnati Masters, in which he couldn’t get past the first round as he lost to Australian, Max Purcell in straight sets. The score line of the match was 6-4, 6-4.

Harris is having a disappointing run in grand slams this year as he couldn’t get past the first rounds in Wimbledon and the French Open. In the Australian Open, he defeated the then-17th seed, Lorenzo Musetti, in the first round but went on to lose in the second round.
