On Sunday, three champions took the titles and trophies at the conclusion of the 2018 US Open Wheelchair Competition.
“The level of tennis in this year’s US Open has been amazingly high,” said US Open Wheelchair Tournament Director Joanne Wallen. “Wheelchair tennis has a great depth at the present time, and we were so fortunate to showcase the world’s greatest talent right here in Flushing Meadows.”
Below is a list of the singles winners across the women’s, men’s and quad wheelchair divisions.
Wheelchair Women’s Singles: Diede De Groot
Double partners and winning champions yesterday, opponents today.
In the one-hour, 12-minute affair, De Groot managed to convert nine of 15 break points, and has now improved her head-to-head record against Kamiji to 12-8.
This is De Groot’s third Slam title of the year, after she took both the Australian Open and Wimbledon titles earlier this year.
Wheelchair Quad Single: Dylan Alcott
Alcott made an impressive 73 percent of his first serves, and converted six of 10 break points en route to his victory.
Wheelchair Men’s Singles: Alfie Hewett
A year after falling just short of taking the US Open title, Great Britain’s Alfie Hewett avenged his loss last year, defeating 22-time Grand Slam champion Shingo Kuneida in the men's final, 6-3, 7-5.
"I'm so thankful for everyone who watched tonight," said Hewett on court after his win. "We got to play in Louis Armstrong today, and Ashe last night. It was a dream and I'm so thankful for the experience."
