Roar from the Crowd

During her interview, it was mentioned that Sabalenka would become the new world No1 when the WTA rankings are updated on Monday. This announcement received a roar of support from the crowd.

When asked what she's most proud of from this year, Sabalenka initially struggled to hold back tears again. The crowd erupted in support.

Compliments from the Champion

Despite winning the match, Coco Gauff had kind words for her opponent. Gauff, who will move up to No3 in the WTA rankings, acknowledged that she had to give her all in order to win. She also thanked those who didn't believe in her, saying that their doubt only fueled her fire.

Rise of Coco Gauff

Coco Gauff's victory at the US Open adds to her impressive run on North American hard courts this summer. After a disappointing defeat at Wimbledon, Gauff has won 18 out of 19 matches and secured titles in Washington, Cincinnati, and New York. Her success has been attributed, in part, to her new coach Brad Gilbert, who has previously worked with tennis legends like Andre Agassi, Andy Murray, and Andy Roddick. After Gauff's win, Gilbert expressed his pride in her.
