Third seed Stan Wawrinka of Switzerland outgunned World No.1 Novak Djokovic 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 7-5, 6-3, to clinch his first US Open title at Flushing Meadows, New York on Sunday.

Felix Auger-Aliassime (Montreal) became just the fourth Canadian ever, and the youngest, to win a junior Grand Slam singles title on Sunday after defeating Serbia’s Miomir Kecmanovic 6-3, 6-0 at the US Open. This was the second attempt of the year for Auger-Aliassime who came up just short at the Junior French Open in June, finishing there as the runner-up.

Auger-Aliassime was dominant from the start, going up an early break in the first set to take a 4-1 lead. He never looked back, allowing his opponent to win only three games the entire match, which lasted just 58 minutes. He served incredibly well, winning 80 per cent of his first serve points and producing 22 winners versus seven for Kecmanovic. It was the perfect redemption match for Auger-Aliassime, who squandered three match points in the Junior French Open final before ultimately losing the match.

24 year old Czech star Pliskova, playing in her maiden Grand Slam final, had made it to Saturday's showpiece on the back of wins against Serena and Venus Williams, and the youngster continued to show that she is definitely one for the future, but nerves got the better of her on the big day as Kerber battled back from a break down in the decider to win 5 of the last 6 games to turn a 3-1 deficit into a 6-4 triumph.
