Kerber’s 2nd Major, 3rd Slam Final of 2016. Wawrinka conquers Djokovic for 3rd Slam Title
Angelique's 2nd Slam of 2016. Wawrinka undefeated in Major Finals
The 2016 US Open saw Angelique Kerber win her second career Grand Slam title, after capturing the Australian Open back in January. Stan Wawrinka won his third Slam. He’s now 3-0 when competing in Grand Slam Finals.
In doubles, Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova overcame a season riddled with injury to take-out the top-team on the WTA Tour; while veterans Bruno Soares and Jamie Murray defeated a pair of Spanish young guns.
The unlikely pairing of Laura Siegemund and Mate Pavic – who’d never met before the start of the 2016 US Open – captured the Mixed Doubles title over Americans Coco Vandeweghe and Olympic Mixed Doubles Silver Medalist Rajeev Ram.
2016 marked the completion of Arthur Ashe Stadium’s new retractable roof, commemorated by Billie Jean King on Opening Night. In dramatic fashion, the roof first opened during a performance of “In the Air Tonight” from Phil Collins – the most electric Opening Night in tournament history. Check out the videos below.
