The world No.2, Alfie Hewett, defeated Shingo Kunieda 7-6(2), 6-1 in the Wheelchair men's singles final to lift his third US Open title. 

A battle of the breaks in the opening set left spectators on the edge of their seats as there appeared to be few and far between the No.1 and No.2 seed. However, it was the British No.1 who looked to be in pole position after earning a total of five set points at 6-5, but Kunieda recovered well from a 40-0 deficit to call for a tiebreak. At the sixth time of asking, the Briton crossed the finish line after producing his second ace of the set to claim the scoreboard advantage.

Winning five straight points, Hewett was awarded with an immediate break in the second before consolidating his lead with a comfortable hold and a second break to build a healthy 3-0 lead. The 24-year-old proceeded to break his opponent for a fourth time in the set, producing 39 winners in total and finding championship point to close out the match with a straight-sets masterclass.
