Diede de Groot of The Netherlands and Alfie Hewett of Britain won the women's and men's wheelchair singles titles, respectively, as the US Open concluded.

For De Groot, victory at the Louis Armstrong Stadium was her sixth consecutive US Open singles title in a row, tying with compatriot Esther Vergeer.

The 26-year-old defeated Yui Kamiji of Japan 6-2, 6-2 to complete the calendar Grand Slam for all trophies for the third year running.

"I like to be challenged," she said after the win.

"The past two, three months I have been training with the guys at home, the same guys that play here in the men's division.

"They challenge me to push harder, to hit harder, to have higher percentages.

"That's what I really like at the moment.

"I hope to come back–not next year because the Paralympics [in Paris] will be during the US Open -but hopefully the next year and many more to come."

Hewett meanwhile won his fourth US Open singles title after getting the better of compatriot and doubles partner Gordon Reid, 6-4, 6-3.

The pair have won 18 major titles together in doubles.

Hewett, who lost to Reid at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games in the final, later said that "it's not easy playing your doubles partner".

"When you've [won] a Grand Slam once, the next time you're there you have…a feeling that, okay, I can do well here," Hewett said.

"Right now I'm on this wave at the US Open.

"I try and learn from these events…dissect it, and [take] that to the next tournament and the next Slam."

Sam Schroder of The Netherlands got his revenge over countryman Niels Vink in the quad wheelchair singles final.

Having lost to Vink in the previous edition, Schroder triumphed 6-3, 7-5 to add to the quad doubles crown he won a day before.

Vink and Schroder combined to crush Andy Lapthorne of Britain and Donald Ramphadi of South Africa 6-1, 6-2 for a third straight US Open title together

Unseeded heroes Stéphane Houdet of France and Takashi Sanada of Japan took the men's doubles crown a day before.

The duo recorded a routine 6-4, 6-4 win over the all-Japanese pair of Tokito Oda and Tokito Oda.

For the 52-year-old Houdet, it was his 20th career Grand Slam while the promising Sanada bagged his first.

The victory is special considering their semi-final upset of top seeds Hewett and Reid.

Yui Kamiji of Japan and Kgothatso Montjane of South Africa benefited from an unfortunate injury for Jiske Griffioen as the pair took the doubles crown without hitting a ball.
