This isn’t Dabrowski’s first taste of Grand Slam glory; she claimed the mixed doubles title at both the Australian Open in 2018 and the French Open in 2017. However, it’s the first time the 31-year-old has been able to add the U.S. Open to her illustrious catalogue of Grand Slam victories, specifically in the segment of women’s doubles.

While Routliffe was born in New Zealand, Canada has been her home for a significant part of her life. Having grown up in Caledon, Ontario, she chose to compete internationally for the maple leaf, further amplifying the country’s pride in their victorious duo. This significant victory has undoubtedly cemented their place in the annals of Canadian tennis history.
