Who won the US Open last year?
Naomi Osaka won a second US Open Women’s title in 2020 as she beat Victoria Azarenka 1-6, 6-3, 6-3.
Novak Djokovic however, did not win the men’s title after being disqualified from his match against Pablo Carreno Busta after accidentally hitting a line judge in the throat with a ball.
That allowed Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverez to play out an epic final in which Thiem came from two sets down to win 2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6).
However, the Austrian will not be in New York to defend his title this year as he is out with a wrist injury.
