The men’s singles championship will be the 19th — and final — title to be awarded at the 2023 U.S. Open. We assume you know all about Coco Gauff’s big win in women’s singles on Saturday (and if you weren’t following along with our blog, you can catch up here). But what about the other freshly crowned champions?

Doubles gave us a new piece of U.S. Open history. Rajeev Ram of the United States and Joe Salisbury of Britain are the first pair to claim three straight men’s doubles titles in New York in the Open era. David Waldstein also wrote about an impressive display of sportsmanship on the part of the losing team, Rohan Bopanna and Matthew Ebden.

In women’s doubles, Gabriela Dabrowski of Canada and Erin Routliffe of New Zealand beat Laura Siegemund and Vera Zvonareva. And in mixed doubles, Anna Danilina of Kazakhstan and Harri Heliovaara of Finland toppled the No. 1-seeded American team of Jessica Pegula and Austin Krajicek.

The juniors championship saw another American teenager win it all, with the 18-year-old Katherine Hui beating Tereza Valentova for the girls’ singles title. Joao Fonseca of Brazil won the boys’ singles by defeating the American Learner Tien, who also played in the men’s tournament, losing to Frances Tiafoe in the first round. In junior doubles, Mara Gae of Romania and Anastasiia Gureva of Russia beat Sara Saito and Nanaka Sato for the girls title, and Max Dahlin of Sweden and Oliver Ojakaar of Estonia defeated Federico Bondioli and Joel Schwaerzler for the boys crown.

In the wheelchair championship, the dominant force of women’s tennis completed her third straight calendar Slam. Diede de Groot of the Netherlands beat Yui Kamiji in straight sets and has now swept all four major tournaments each year since 2021. On the men’s side, Alfie Hewett beat his fellow Brit and doubles partner, Gordon Reid. And in the quad final, doubles partners Niels Vink and Sam Schroder of the Netherlands were facing off for the title in Louis Armstrong Stadium after they won their third straight doubles title at the Open on Saturday, over Andy Lapthorne and Donald Ramphadi.

Stephane Houdet of France and Takashi Sanada of Japan beat Takuya Miki and Tokito Oda for the men’s wheelchair doubles title. And in women’s doubles, the team of Diede de Groot and Jiske Griffioen had to withdraw because of an injury to Griffioen, so Yui Kamiji of Japan and Kgothatso Montjane of South Africa were awarded the title.

In the junior division of the wheelchair championship, Dahnon Ward of Britain beat the top-seeded Francesco Felici for the boys’ singles title, and he also won the doubles crown, teaming up with fellow Brit Joshua Johns to defeat the American team of Charlie Cooper and Tomas Majetic. The girls’ side also saw a two-time winner, with Ksenia Chasteau of France beating the American Maylee Phelps in singles, then pairing with Phelps for a doubles win over Sabina Czauz and Yuma Takamuro.
