NEW YORK – Martina Hingis earned her 11th Grand Slam women's doubles title and second at the U.S. Open.
Already a member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame, Hingis paired with Sania Mirza of India to beat Casey Dellacqua of Australia and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-3 in the U.S. Open final Sunday.
The title comes 18 years after the 34-year-old Hingis' first in doubles, at the Australian Open, and 17 years after the Swiss star won her other doubles championship at Flushing Meadows.
Hingis also won the U.S. Open mixed doubles title this year with Leander Paes.
Hingis and Mirza only began playing as a team in March, and now they've won a second Grand Slam trophy in a row, after Wimbledon in July.
"From the start, we hit it off," Hingis said. "Our games just really complement each other."
Hingis reached No. 1 in the rankings and won five Grand Slam singles titles in the 1990s.
