Great Britain’s Andy Lapthorne secured his first ever Grand Slam title on Sunday (7 September) with victory in the US Open in New York, whilst there were also final wins for Japan’s Shingo Kunieda and Yui Kamiji in the men’s and women’s singles.
Paralympic silver medallist Lapthorne, competing at US Open for only the second time, defeated world No.1 David Wagner 7-5, 6-2.
"For the US Open to be my first Grand Slam singles title is so special because I love this place, the whole city is just great," said 23-year-old Lapthorne who secured victory in 75 minutes.
"I've visualised that match point before and when it happened I couldn't believe it. That's what I've always dreamed of.
"Today was all heart and I felt like I served really well. I kept it consistent rather than big and that was my plan beforehand. My dad told me I always do things two years after Andy Murray and I've done it again with the title here."
World No.1 Kamiji became the first ever non-Dutch player to win the women’s US Open title with victory over the Netherlands’ defending champion Aniek Van Koot.
The 20-year-old, who came into this tournament as the youngest No. 1 seed in Open history, took advantage of Van Koot’s 20 double faults, to win 6-3, 6-3 and add the US Open to the French Open crown she won earlier this year.
Kamiji’s compatriot Kunieda secured his fifth US Open title with a 7-6 (7-0), 6-4 win over 20-year-old Argentinian Gustavo Fernandez.
