Taiwan’s Chan Yung-jan and Swiss player Martina Hingis won the women’s doubles
championship at the US Open on Sunday. This is the first Grand Slam title for Chan. Chan said that since she was a child, she has dreamed of winning a Grand Slam title, so this is “a dream come true”.
The second-seeded Chan and Hingis beat the seventh-seeded Czech team Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova in two straight sets 6:3, 6:2.
This was Hingis’s 25th Grand Slam title. It was also the pair’s seventh women’s doubles title this year. Chan and Hingis will share the US$675,000 in prize money.
Chan’s last time at the US Open women’s doubles finals was in 2007 when she and her partner Chuang Chia-jung were runners-up. [FULL STORY]
