+ Caroline Wozniacki upset the fifth-seeded Maria Sherapova 6-4, 2-6, 6-2 to advance to the quarterfinals. 
+ Serena Williams defeated Caroline Wozniacki 6-3, 6-3 in the championship match of the U.S. Open to win her 6th U.S. Open and her 18th Grand Slam Tournament. Only three other women have held 18 Grand Slam Titles, Serena joined the club on Sunday after her big win. 
+ Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, two players who were expected in the finals, were both upset in the semifinals by players who had never made it that far in a Grand Slam tournament. 
+ With their 5th U.S. Open championship, Bryan Brothers won their 100th doubles tournament title. 
+ Marin Cilic defeated Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 to win the men’s singles final match of the U.S. Open and become its most unexpected champion. Cilic became just one of four players to win the U.S. Open without dropping a set in the quarterfinals, semifinals and finals.
