US Open 2023&nbsp ;: Djokovic a little more in the legend, first for Gauff, the summary

The US Open has ended Sunday, with the historic coronations of Djokovic and Coco Gauff. Summary of around fifteen who delivered all its promises, except perhaps for the French.

The Arthur-Ashe court was once again the History Theater this weekend. Perhaps the completion of a legend on Sunday, with Novak Djokovic's 24th Grand Slam title, a new absolute record for men. Even if the Serb still seems to have the resources to win other big victories beyond that, of his 36 years, this coronation was the US Open will perhaps remain as the one that places him alone in the world, ahead of Rafael Nadal who will return in 2024 with the ambition of competing with him at the highest level. new. By masterfully dominating Daniil Medvedev in the final (6-3, 7-6, 6-3), "Nole" concluded a brilliant fortnight and almost without a hitch for him, if we except his little scare in five sets against his compatriot Laslo Djere in the third round.

The day before, it's the first page of a legend that we hope will be just as long as Flushing Meadows lived, with the first Grand Slam coronation by the prodigy Coco Gauff. The 19-year-old American will have a hard time making her move. put an end to the comparisons with Serena Williams, winning like her elder her first Grand Slam at home before he turns 20. To achieve this, she had toû overthrow the new world number one Aryna Sabalenka in the final (2-6, 6-3, 6-2). Helped by a keen audience; her cause, she won the biggest tournament of her young career and will have to continue to win. deal with the pressure of one's status part: that of a player so talented that we still expect many Grand Slam successes from her.

For the French, look forward to 2024!< /h2>

As at all Grand Slam tournaments this season, at with the exception of Caroline Garcia at Wimbledon, no French woman or man has reached the round of 16 of the US Open. Among the women, the failure was scathing since only Clara Burel made it to the third round, where she won. she was logically swept away by Aryna Sabalenka. Caroline Garcia, the only long-term hope in the American tournament, was beaten in the first round by the Chinese Yafan Wang, and confirms that she is no longer part of the elite of women's tennis, while waiting, let's hope, for a rebound in 2024.

Among the men, on the other hand, the absence of a representative in the second week hides a rather encouraging result, with notably three Frenchmen in the third round. Adrian Mannarino, Arthur Rinderknech and Benjamin Bonzi, all authors of their best career in a Major this season, failed to achieve this goal. respectively face to face; Frances Tiafoe, Andrey Rublev and Dominic Stricker. Logical but encouraging defeats, like that of Arthur Fils against the excellent Matteo Arnaldi, after having eliminated World No. 24 Tallon Griekspoor in the first round. The Frenchman, the youngest player in the men's top 50, continues to perform well. gain experience and gain experience progress in his game, before perhaps reaching a milestone next year. Finally, we will remember the beautiful and promising story of Titouan Droguet, aged 22-year-old and winner in the first round of Lorenzo Musetti, 18th in the world, after qualifying for the World Cup. for a Grand Slam for the first time in his career.

Fallen number 1s and great firsts

Carlos Alcaraz, eliminated in the semi-final by Daniil Medvedev, had a very good tournament and continues to improve. gain experience. But from now on, only a tournament won is a successful tournament for the Spaniard, who returns his throne of world number one to Novak Djokovic. Less positive to say draw for Iga Swiatek, eliminated in the round of 16 by Jelena Ostapenko and who loses her place as leader of the WTA ranking to the benefit of finalist Aryna Sabalenka. On the side good news, the Italian Matteo Arnaldi and the Australian Rinky Hijikata, both 22 years old, were awarded the title. the surprise guests of the round of 16. They reached this stage for the first time in their Grand Slam career, and achieved two very promising courses for the 2024 season. The young Ben Shelton, 20 years old, reached the first Major semi-final of his career at home, but stopped à this stadium against the future Serbian winner. In men's doubles, the Ram-Salisbury pair won the title for the third year in a row, while Gabriela Dabrowski and Erin Routliffe won their first Grand Slam trophy together, in the women's doubles. p>
