New York (AP) — US Open tennis tournament updates (always local):

9:20 p.m.

New York isn’t just for the US Open.

Meeting celebrities. Go to a Broadway show for a different reason.

Iga Swiatek does it all.

The women’s singles champion said her tournament went well before she lifted the trophy on Saturday.

“I was like, ‘Even if I lose now, I already won this tournament because I took a picture with him,'” Swiatek said.

The 21-year-old from Poland also met retired skier Lindsay Vonn. She plans to see a show on Sunday, but didn’t reveal which one.

“I won’t name the musical,” Swirtek said. “Because I want to be a little more peaceful tomorrow.”

6:10 p.m.

Yiga Swiertek defeated Onz Jabbar 6-2, 7-6(5) to win his first US Open and third Grand Slam title.

World No. 1 Swiertek won the title after winning the French Open twice, including one earlier this year. She has won her seven titles in 2022, her most since Serena her Williams in 2014.

Jabbar recovered after getting off to bad starts in both sets, but failed to reach a Grand Slam final for the second time in a row.

4:50 pm

Iga Swirtek continued his dominance in the US Open final, winning the first set 6-2 against Once-Jabbar.

The world No. 1 Swiertek has won all of his last nine finals in straight sets since losing his first career final in 2019.

One of them was a 6-2, 6-2 loss against Jabbar in Rome this year.

Swiatek took a 3-0 lead within 10 minutes, a 12-2 lead on points, and put it together in just 30 minutes.

The fifth seed, Jabbar, has reached two Grand Slam finals in a row, dropping only one set in the tournament.


4:20 p.m.

Iga Swiertek and Ons Jabbar started in the women’s singles final at the US Open.

There is a lot of support for both on the New York grounds. There are many fans who wear red from Poland, the home country of 1st place Cyphiertek.

Jabbar is on the verge of becoming the first African woman and first professional Arab to win a Grand Slam title. Fifth seed Tunisia lost in the Wimbledon final.

4 pm

Alexandra Ira became the first Filipino player to win a junior Grand Slam singles title.

The 10th seed defeated Czech Republic’s Lucia Havrykova 6-2, 6-4 to win the U.S. Open Junior Women’s title.

The 17-year-old from Quezon City said she hopes her victory will inspire young players in her country.

Spain’s Martin Landalooth defeated Belgium’s Gilles Arnaud Bailly 7-6(3), 5-7, 6-2 to win the men’s title.


2:15 p.m.

US Open semifinalist Francis Tiafoe has withdrawn from the US squad for group stage matches at the Davis Cup in Glasgow, Scotland next week.

The United States Tennis Association announced Tiafoe’s withdrawal. Tiafoe, at her 24, from Maryland, was seeded her 22nd at her Meadows in Flushing.

He became the first American to reach the semifinals of the US Open since Andy Roddick won the semifinals in 2006.

Tiafoe’s run ended in a loss to third-seeded Carlos Alcalaz. Alcaraz will face No. 7 seed Casper Ruud in his US Open final on Sunday.

2 pm

Australia’s Storm Sanders and John Pierce won the US Open mixed doubles title with a 4-6, 6-4, 10-7 victory over the team of Kirsten Flipkens and Eduardo Roger Vaseline.

It was the first Grand Slam mixed doubles title for Piers, who made 31 appearances before teaming with Sanders for the first time in this tournament. He closed out the match tiebreaker with an ace.

Piers won a bronze medal at last year’s Olympics, teaming with former women’s No. 1 Ash Barty.

1:15 p.m.

World No. 1 Iga Spheretek and Onz Jabbar will participate in the women’s singles at the US Open, which also decides the winner of the mixed doubles.

Swiatek is looking to win his second Grand Slam title of the year. The 21-year-old from Poland won her second French Open in June, one of her six titles won in 2022.

Jabbar is chasing his first major title after losing the Wimbledon final. Tunisia’s fifth seed will become the first African woman to win a Grand Slam tournament during her professional career, which began in 1968.

Their match at Arthur Ashe Stadium followed a mixed doubles final between Australia’s Storm Sanders and John Pears and the team of Kirsten Flipkens and Eduard Roger Vaseline.
