New York, Sep 12: After crushing Russian Vera Zvonareva 6-2 6-1, Belgium's Kim Clijsters acquired US Open women's title on Saturday, Sep 11 for the second time.

Clijsters, 27-year-old, extended her Flushing Meadows match-winning streak to 21 in a row, having also won the title in 2005 before missing a year due to injury and two more to start a family.

At the trophy ceremony, Clijsters stated, "It's been an incredible year, being back in the Open and for the first time I'm able to defend my title."

Clijsters cruised through the first set in 27 minutes after twice breaking Zvonareva's serve.
