2023 US Open Final weekend review: Coco Gauff reigns supreme on home soil while Novak Djokovic wins grand slam title No.24

by Sports Benches

Well, we got a women’s singles grand slam champ at last from the US of A in Coco Gauff who defeated Aryna Sabalenka from a set down to a terrific comeback that secured her a home grand slam title at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York. What a moment it has been from the young American, having ended a long wait for a winner to lift the US Open women’s singles title on home soil since Sloane Stephens in 2017. For the new World No.1 ranked player in Sabalenka, she had an easy start during the first stage. However, she just couldn’t keep it up from a resurgent Gauff at the next restart before it was too late.

Final score: 2-6 to Sabalenka, 6-3 & 6-2 to Gauff.

Meanwhile in the men, how good was seeing Novak Djokovic win his grand slam title No.24 here as it’s been a few years since he last lifted the men’s singles US Open title back in 2018. He did so well in the beginning, then he overcame such a huge 2nd stage set of battles after that tiebreak against Daniil Medvedev before the light was there at the end of the tunnel. And on the 21’ champ Medvedev, it took him a while to get going where he showed some fight throughout the 2nd set but just lost it all along towards the end.

Final Score: 3-6, 6-7 with 5-7 tiebreak & 3-6 to Djokovic.

After seeing four grand slams, the 2023 season has now came to a fantastic close for this next book featuring some terrific performances & upsets along the way.

There will be some Tennis towards the end of the year beginning with the Davis Cup Finals during the Group Stage portion where Australia will take on Great Britain, France & Switzerland – let’s hope they can take it all the way & go one better come the knockout stages in late November.
