Tennis-Czech duo win U.S. Open women's doubles title

The Czech duo Andrea Hlaváčková and Lucie Hradecká won the U.S. Open women's doubles title on Saturday with a 7-6(4) 6-1 6-4 win over Australia's Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua. Hlaváčková and Hradecká, who upset Serena and Venus Williams in the semi-finals, overcame a swift start from the Australians and finished strongly to claim their second major doubles title following their 2011 French Open triumph. It was also a second title for Hlaváčková at this year's U.S. Open after she teamed up with Belarusian veteran Max Mirnyi to win the mixed doubles on Friday.
