- US Open champions Iga Swiatek and Carlos Alcaraz praised each other after their maiden victories in New York.
- The world number one Swiatek won her third Grand Slam title after defeating Tunisian Ons Jabeur in straight sets 6-2, 7-6(5) of women’s singles final. Swiatek sent back Jabeur in almost two hours at Arthur Ashe Stadium. However, the men’s singles match was on the edge of the cliff as both Alcaraz and Casper Ruud were eyeing to clinch the maiden title.
- Iga Swiatek became the first Polish player to win a US Open title and the youngest woman to win her third major trophy since Maria Sharapova in 2008. The 21-year-old has also equalled Serena Williams, having won the French Open and US Open in the same year.
- Alcaraz also became the youngest Grand Slam champion since Rafael Nadal in 2005. He is now the the third Spanish men’s player to win the US Open after Manuel Orantes (1975) and Rafael Nadal (2010, 2013, 2017, 2019).
