The women’s side of the 2022 U.S. Open was jam-packed with spectacular events, most prominently, Serena Williams’s final grand slam run. Coming into the tournament, many experts were wary about Serena’s capability; however, Serena completed an excellent performance making it to the third round, until she lost to Aija Tomljanovic. Serena gave us one last view of the woman who has dominated the WTA for decades. To finish the tournament, the world number one, Iga Swiatek, beat Ons Jabeur to win her 3rd Grand Slam title. Ultimately, the Women’s side of the U.S. Open was a fantastic event that hosted the conclusion of Serena’s remarkable career and the beginning of a new era.



On the men’s side, although it did not have a headline event as captivating as Serena’s final tournament, it was just as fun. Fans enjoyed watching Nick Kyrgios’s fantastic run to the Quarterfinals and his usual showmanship. Although it is extensively debated whether or not Kyrgios should be considered a showman or a bad influence, the U.S. Open crowd was interested and excited because of him. Furthermore, we witnessed the rise of a prodigy through Carlos Alcaraz. The 19-year-old Spanish phenom performed spectacularly and won the U.S. Open. After winning his first Grand Slam, Alcaraz also received the title of number one in the world, while the runner-up, Casper Ruud, became number two worldwide. The U.S. Open this year somewhat marked the end of the old generation of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Novak Djokovic sparking a new generation of talented players, led by Carlos Alcaraz.
