Aussie legend Dylan Alcott has won the 2020 US Open Quad Doubles final while also booking his place in the Quad Singles final.

Alcott was part of a strong campaign earlier this year to make sure that the US Open included wheelchair and quad tennis after it was initially announced they would not be involved in the tournament. 

He was successful in getting the US Tennis Association to reverse the decision and boy, isn’t he making the most of it. 

The 29-year-old has been near faultless in his campaign so far since his first match against Netherland’s Sam Schroder with a 6-2 6-4 victory. 

Alcott has gone three from three in the singles after defeating David Wagner on Saturday and has booked his place in Sunday’s final. 

But even more impressive, only hours later Alcott won his second-straight US Open Quad Doubles final. 

Teaming up with UK’s Andy Lapthorne, the pair defeated Schroder and Wagner in a final-set tiebreak, 3-6 6-4 10-8.

But while he’s in New York, he’s certainly not letting the lack of crowd get him down with good vibes carrying him all the way to what could be an incredible 11th Grand Slam singles title.
