Zimbabwe's Cara Black and American Liezel Huber won their fourth grand slam crown together on Sunday, beating Lisa Raymond and Sam Stosur 6-3 7-6 to win the U.S. Open women's doubles title.
The top seeds saved two set points in the second-set tiebreak before completing their first U.S. Open triumph together without losing a set.
"I don't know whether to sing the anthem, cartwheel or just encourage you all to vote," Huber said in a courtside interview.
"I am just the proudest American right now."
Tenth seeds Raymond and Stosur, runners-up at Wimbledon this year, where they beat Black and Huber in the semi-finals, broke in the opening game but were outplayed in the rest of the set.
The win gave Black her a second U.S. Open title this year after she teamed up with India's Paes.
