Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova win US Open women’s doubles title


The US Open women’s doubles final between the teams of Vania King/Yaroslava Shvedova and Nadia Petrova/Liezel Huber was suspended on Sunday due to rain and postponed for Monday. At the moment the match had to stop King and Shvedova were three points from defeat, with King serving at 4-5, 0-15 in the third set.

However, the American and the Kazakh, seeded sixth, saved a match point shortly after play resumed and then went on to win the third set tiebreaker against their second-seeded opponents. Final score: 2-6 6-4 7-6(4).
