Martina Hingis Chan Yung Jan

Switzerland's Martina Hingis and Taiwan's Chan Yung-Jan won the US Open women's doubles title tonight, when they rolled past the Czech partnership of Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova 6-3 6-2. 

It was the first grand slam title for Chan but the second in as many days for Hingis, who won the mixed doubles with Britain's Jamie Murray on Saturday. The victory took Hingis's career grand-slam tally to 25, including five singles titles, 13 doubles and seven mixed doubles. Hingis and Chan stormed through the draw without dropping a set and in the final did not face a breakpoint as they simply overwhelmed Hradecka and Siniakova.
