Australian wheelchair tennis star Dylan Alcott won his sixth Grand Slam title, but only after he was forced to compete on an indoor track training course.
Alcott lashed out at the US Open after claiming the quadruple wheelchair title of the tournament, where he was also denied the opportunity to play in front of a large crowd.
"It's a shame, they could have kept Arthur Ashe or Louis Armstrong (stadiums) open a little later, but they chose the cost too much," Alcott said in a post-ESPN interview.

Alcott defeated American David Wagner 7-5, 6-2 in the US Open final on Sunday
It was the second victory of 27 years in New York on Sunday, but had to do it without spectators.
"I'm a great atmosphere type, I have a great personality and I really enjoy shooting myself, but when you're in the middle of nowhere and you can not even find the court, it's hard." Alcott said.
"The difficult thing was that we were not allowed to see spectators, you had to have accreditation, which is crazy".
Alcott noticed how "the rain came and they programmed a little bit badly".

Then he defeated current world number one, American David Wagner, 7-5, 6-2 in 75 minutes.
Despite the legal problem, Alcott shared his satisfaction on Twitter by claiming his second crown at the US Open.
& # 39; 2018 OPEN CHAMPION OF THE UNITED STATES !!! 6 singles Grand Slams in the books … ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡To each one of you for love and support !! ", wrote Alcott.
He added in his post-match interview that his experience at the US Open paled in comparison to the Australian Open, where he plays in front of 12,000 people at Rod Laver Arena.
Alcott said he would deposit his earnings at his Dylan Alcott Foundation.
