Carlos Alcaraz speaks:
Firstly, I want to talk about today. I want to say my thoughts are with you on this day. It is never easy to live this day like a normal one. My thoughts are with everyone
This is something I dreamt of – winning a Grand Slam, World No 1. This is something I worked towards. It is tough to talk about it. A lot of emotions. This is something I tried to work on with my family. This is really, really special for me
I was thinking about my mom. She's not here and my grandfather. A lot of family are here but a lot of family couldn't come. I was just thinking about them
A little bit tired now! It is no time to be tired in the final week of a Grand Slam. You have to work hard and give everything on the court.
Casper Ruud gets a loud ovation as he steps up to speak:
Before we talk about tennis, I know it is an emotional day for Americans. I want to send my prayers to those who lost people on this tragic day, tragic incident in this beautiful city, beautiful country of yours. It is something we never forget.
Things have been going so well. Today was a special evening. We knew what was at stake. It was fun and fitting that it was about World No 1 and 2. I will continue to chase my first Grand Slam and the World No 1. I am disappointed not to get World No 1 but No 2 isn't so bad.
I owe everything to them. They've been caring, thoughtful and I can't thank them enough. I hope we can continue to be a strong team. Thank you for your efforts and sacrifices

US Open 2022 setting attendance records


"The 2022 US Open broke the event's all-time attendance records, for both the two weeks of the main draw and the main draw and Fan Week combined. The two-week main draw attendance was 776,120, surpassing the previous record of 737,872, set in 2019."

New York: Carlos Alcaraz or Casper Ruud will win his first major title, then move to No 1 in the ATP rankings on Monday.
If it’s the 19-year-old Alcaraz, he would become the youngest Grand Slam champion since fellow Spaniard Rafael Nadal was also 19 when he won the French Open in 2005, and the youngest No 1 since the computer rankings began in 1973.
He has won three straight five-set matches, but the last man to do that leading into a Grand Slam final then lost, when Roger Federer beat Andre Agassi in 2005 at Flushing Meadows.
Ruud gets his second chance at a first major title, having lost to Nadal in June at the French Open. He will become the first Norwegian player to be No 1 with a victory, but he is 0-5 against top-10 players in Grand Slam matches.
