World No.1, Iga Swiatek on Saturday beats Tunisia’s Ons Jabeur 6-2 7-6 (7-5) in the US Open women’s singles final.
Both players were appearing in their first US Open final.
Polish world number one Swiatek, 21, has now won a third major title after two French Open triumphs.
After a one-sided first set, 28-year-old Jabeur settled midway through the second but it was not enough to stop Swiatek clinching a third major title.
Swiatek’s previous two wins both came on the clay at the French Open.
“I’m so proud that I could handle it mentally.”
Reacting, Jabeur said: “I want to thank the crowd for cheering me up. I really tried but Iga didn’t make it easy for me.
“She deserves to win today, I don’t like her very much right now but it’s OK. Amazing two weeks backing up my final in Wimbledon.
“We’re going to get that title some time soon.”
