Congrats on winning US Open, Vera/Laura !!! :love::love::love: ♥♥♥

Unbelievable tournament. First tournament together, and they win a Grand Slam title.

The first Grand Slam doubles title for Laura, and the 3rd Grand Slam doubles title for Vera.

Laura was the best player. BRILLIANT performance! Active, great ideas/volleys/touch, very smart.

Laura played AMAZING until 5-1. Then it got closer, but they closed the set out at 6-4.
Vera played GREAT tennis in the 2nd set until 6-4 2-0. She showed all her big talent there.
Strong tennis from both in the rest of the 2nd set and to finish the match. Respect !

A convincing win. Concentrated, dominant, superior. Very deserved title :D
Vera/Laura were clearly the better team. They looked like the #3 seeds, and not Melichar/Xu.

Also lovely winner hug (it was allowed by umpire). What a wonderful doubles team Vera/Laura are!

I am so happy for Vera especially and Laura as well, she played great! A well deserved win. Did not think I would see the day Vera winning a grand slam (even that it is her 5th in doubles), and watched a whole match of her again on the tele. Looks like she hasn't aged at all, like she was still 25. Hell, I felt 10 years younger watching her play. Then I looked in the mirror (but that is a different story ;) ). Hope they will play together for many more tournaments, they somehow make each other play better.

Well done, congratz!

Vera beat Rodionova 60 64(y) :D

Very solid scoreline, with lots of breaks in second set, but at least Vera stayed on the right side of the score. Now for a place in t he MD against Niculescu, which will be tough. But with the recent results, I have faith she can make it.

Vera won second set 63 :D . She started 02 down again, but after that she fought back. Keep going, Vera!

Vera lost the final 36 36 to Kanepi, she is a player Vera always has some trouble with. But nice result nonetheless :)
