Date
15 September 2020

NEW YORK – Naomi Osaka, Laura Siegmund, Shingo Kunieda, and Diede de Groot each left the New York bubble with a new piece of hardware. 

 

Women’s Singles: Best in the Bubble

[4] Naomi Osaka (JPN) won her third Grand Slam title in an exhilarating battle against Victoria Azarenka (BLR). 

She was the first player in 25 years to lift the trophy after losing the first set in the championship match, 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.  

 

Women’s Doubles: First time’s the charm

Laura Siegemund (GER) teamed up with Vera Zvonareva (RUS) for the first time in their careers to win the women’s doubles title, dropping just one set the entire tournament. 

It’s Siegemund’s second US Open trophy, having won the mixed doubles event at the US Open in 2016.

 

Men’s Wheelchair Singles: The Legend Strikes Again

Arguably the greatest wheelchair player of all time, [1] Shingo Kunieda (JPN) won his 24th Grand Slam title – his 7th US Open, defeating two-time defending champion, Alfie Hewett (GBR) in an epic 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 victory.

 

Women’s Wheelchair Singles: Diede Domination

[1] Diede de Groot (NED) won her third-straight US Open title with a straight-set victory in the women’s wheelchair division. The 23-year-old has won every major title at least once in her young career.
