The 2023 U.S. Open set records for overall attendance and also for crowd sizes at both the men's and women's finals.

A total of 799,402 spectators attended the main draw from Aug. 28 through Sunday in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.

That was a boost of 3 percent from last year's total of 776,120.

Coco Gauff's championship win on Saturday drew 28,143 fans and Novak Djokovic's 24th Grand Slam win Sunday drew 28,804.

All 25 sessions in Arthur Ashe Stadium sold out for the second year in a row.

This year's event featured a $65 million prize pool that is the largest of tennis' four majors, with Gauff and Djokovic each earning $3 million.
