Dechy and Zvonareva win women's doubles title
NEW YORK, Sep 11 (Reuters) Nathalie Dechy of France and Russian Vera Zvonareva beat eighth seeds Dinara Safina and Katarina Srebotnik 7-6 7-5 to win the women's doubles title at the U S Open.
The unseeded pair came through in just under two hours to give Zvonareva her third grand slam title and Dechy her first.
Russian Safina and Slovenian Srebotnik had beaten top seeds Lisa Raymond of the United States and Samantha Stosur of Australia in the semi-finals.
''That's what we work for, 20 years, to play in front of the crowd, in the centre court of the grand slam in the finals,'' Zvonareva said yesterday.
''It's a great opportunity. You just got to enjoy. No matter how you play, try to do it.'' REUTERS AD RN0449
