The Men’s Singles Championship is the 19th and final title to be offered at the 2023 US Open. We’re assuming you know about Coco Goff’s big win in the women’s singles on Saturday (if you haven’t been following along with our blog, you can here). But what about the other newly crowned champions?
Doubles gave us a new chapter in US Open history. American Rajiv Ram and Britain’s Joe Salisbury became the first pair in the Open era to win three straight men’s doubles titles in New York. David Waldstein also wrote of an impressive display of sportsmanship from the losing team, Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Epton.
Canada’s Gabriela Dabrowski and New Zealand’s Erin Routliff defeated Laura Siegmond and Vera Zvonareva in the women’s doubles. Also in mixed doubles, Kazakhstan’s Anna Danilina and Finland’s Harry Heliovara beat No.1-ranked American Jessica Pegula and Austin Krajicek.
Another young American swept it all at the juniors championships, 18-year-old Kathryn Hui beat Teresa Valladova for the women’s singles title. Brazil’s Joao Fonseca defeated American Lerner Dion, who also played in the men’s event, before losing to Francis Tiafoe in the first round to win the boys’ singles. In the junior doubles, Romania’s Mara Kay and Russia’s Anastasia Guereva beat Sarah Saito and Nanaka Sato, Sweden’s Max Dalin and Estonia’s Oliver Ojakar, Federico Pontioli and Joel Schwarzler.
At the Wheelchair Championships, women’s tennis’ dominant force completed its third straight calendar slam. Diede de Groot of the Netherlands beat Yui Kamiji in straight sets and has won all four majors every year since 2021. In the men’s category, Alfie Hewett beat fellow Brit and doubles partner Gordon Reid. Also in the quad final, doubles partners Niels Wink and Sam Schroeder of the Netherlands face off against Andy Lapthorne and Donald Rambadi at the Louis Armstrong Stadium for the title after winning the doubles title for the third time in Saturday’s Open.
France’s Stephane Houdet and Japan’s Takashi Sanada beat Takuya Miki and Tokito Oda to win the men’s wheelchair doubles title. Also in the women’s doubles, Japan’s Yui Kamiji and South Africa’s Kodatso Montjen graduated as Diede de Groot and Jiske Griffeon pulled out due to an injury to Griffeon.
In the junior division of the wheelchair championships, Britain’s Dahnon Ward defeated top seed Francesco Pelici for the men’s singles title, and he also won the doubles crown, defeating Charlie Cooper’s American team to team up with fellow Brit Joshua Johns. and Thomas Majedik. The women’s team also won twice, with France’s Ksenia Chastau defeating American Maylee Phelps in singles and then partnering with Phelps in doubles against Sabina Czauz and Yuma Takamuro.
