Coco Gauff came from behind to claim her first Grand Slam

Sabalenka won the first set 6-2 at Flushing Meadows, but 19-year-old Coco Gauff bounced back in the next two sets to win the US Open and claim her first Grand Slam title.

That was also Gauff’s first Grand Slam title and she broke down in tears of joy afterwards.

The angry Sabalenka was also in tears on the court after letting victory slip through her grasp.

Sabalenka's intense rage leads to damaged racket

After making her way back into the locker room, Sabalenka was caught on camera pulling out her racket from its bag before angrily slamming it against the floor several times. Due to the intense rage she was smashing it with, the racket was soon bent out of shape. She then dumped the ruined racket into a bin.

Sabalenka jokes about firing her coaching team

Sabalenka, who leaked unforced errors as Gauff seemingly began to cover every inch of the court, jokingly claimed after the loss that she was set to axe her coaching team. She said, "They know they will be fired after this tournament. No, as always we will come back stronger, right? Thank you for everything you do for me – I really appreciate it and I love you guys." She also added, "Most of my time I handled my emotions pretty well, congrats to Coco, you played unbelievable in the final."
