US Open: Britain enjoys super Saturday at Flushing Meadows – even before Raducanu glory bid

Salisbury
completed
a
remarkable
doubles
double,
adding
the
mixed
title
to
the
men’s
crown
he
secured
on
Friday
(September
10),
and
Reid
and
Hewett
teamed
up
to
clinch
a
calendar
Grand
Slam
in
wheelchair
men’s
doubles.

After
Salisbury
and
American
partner
Rajeev
Ram
won
the
men’s
doubles
title
by
beating
Jamie
Murray
and
Bruno
Soares,
Salisbury
returned
on
Saturday
to
land
another
title,
the
fourth
major
of
his
career.

Salisbury
teamed
up
with
another
American
partner,
Desirae
Krawczyk,
to
see
off
Mexican
Giuliana
Olmos
and
Salvadorean
Marcelo
Arevalo
7-5
6-2
on
Arthur
Ashe
Stadium,
in
the
match
directly
before
the
women’s
final.

Raducanu,
the
world
number
150,
was
going
for
glory
in
the
women’s
singles
final
against
another
unlikely
finalist
in
Canada’s
Leylah
Fernandez.

If
she
was
seeking
inspiration
from
fellow
Britons,
it
was
in
plentiful
supply,
with
wheelchair
maestros
Reid
and
Hewett
scoring
a
6-2
6-1
doubles
victory
over
Japan’s
Shingo
Kunieda
and
Argentina’s
Gustavo
Fernandez.

That
meant
they
sealed
a
clean
sweep
of
the
Australian
Open,
French
Open,
Wimbledon
and
the
US
Open
in
2021,
becoming
the
first
men’s
wheelchair
duo
in
history
to
perform
that
feat.

France’s
Stephane
Houdet
previously
won
a
calendar
Grand
Slam
in
the
event,
but
he
played
with
two
different
partners
during
the
2014
campaign,
landing
three
titles
with
Kunieda
and
one
with
Joachim
Gerard.
