Re: The 2007 US Open

NEW YORK (Reuters) - France's Nathalie Dechy won her second consecutive U.S. Open women's doubles title on Sunday as she and Russian Dinara Safina beat fifth seeds Chan Yung-jan and Chuang Chia-jung of Taiwan 6-4 6-2.

The seventh seeds won a tight first set and then survived a few nerves in the second, when the Taiwan pair hit back from 5-0 to 5-2, to clinch the title.

The win gave Dechy, who won the mixed doubles at the French Open in June, her third grand slam title while it was Safina's first, having lost in the final to Dechy and Russian Vera Zvonareva 12 months ago.

"It's unbelievable," Dechy told reporters. "I was saying to my husband, Can you believe it's the second time (in a row) that I'm winning this trophy?"

Safina said their partnership came about at the last minute.

"I was supposed to play doubles with (Tatiana) Golovin, but then she got her injury," the Russian said.

"She's like, 'I'm not going to play'. I was in New Haven. (Maria) Kirilenko said to me 'I think Nathalie, she's just texted me, she wants to play doubles with me. You should text her'.

"I just texted her, just two days before. It was like, OK, let's play."

Safina said she hoped they would play together again in the future. "I would love to play with her. I had an agreement with Meghann Shaughnessy to the end of the year. (But) maybe we can start from next year."

Congratulations to Dinara for her first major win, and they were a scratch pairing too!! It's nice also that Marat won his first major at the US Open and now Dinara's done the same too

Dinara is in the doubles final for the 2nd straight year. That's at least $100,000

Re: The 2007 US Open

Ugh. I'm sad she's out of the tournament now, I just wish she could have put up just a bit more of a fight for Justine.

Oh well, I'm very happy for the 4th round for Dina.

Dinara lost 06 26. I know she's working hard, she has to get more consistent.

Re: The 2007 US Open

Dinara is down 06 25. I'm watching her on the big screen, and I think she should see a dermatologist. Get her skin cleared up.

Re: The 2007 US Open

Dinara plays against Justine tonight on Arthur Ashe so it will be great to see Dina on TV finally.

Play your best Dinara, give it your all! All of your fans are behind you. Good luck!
