With the conclusion of the men's singles final on Sunday evening, the 2022 U.S. Open is officially in the books.
Spain's Carlos Alcaraz bested Norway’s Casper Ruud in four sets, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6, 6-3, to become the youngest player to reach world No. 1 at just 19 years old. It was his first Grand Slam title, as it would have been for Ruud.
Earlier on Sunday, the Czech women's doubles team of Barbora Krejčíková and Katerina Siniakova defeated American duo Caty McNally and Taylor Townsend, 3-6, 7-5, 6-1, to claim their sixth Grand Slam title together. In winning an elusive U.S. Open, they also completed a career Grand Slam.
On Saturday, Iga Świątek lived up to her world No. 1 ranking, defeating Ons Jabeur 6-2, 7-6 (5) in the women's singles final at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
It was Świątek's first U.S. Open title and her second major championship this season, coming off the heels of her French Open win. Not only is she the first player representing Poland to win a U.S. Open, but she's the first to win a major singles title.
On Friday, No. 1 seeds Rajeev Ram and Joe Salisbury defeated No. 2 seeds Wesley Koolhof and Neal Skupski 7-6(4), 7-5, successfully defending their 2021 U.S. Open men's doubles title.
