NEW YORK - SEPTEMBER 13: Vania King (R) of the United States and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazikstan celebrate with their throphy after defeating Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova of Russia to win the women's doubles final on day fifteen of the 2010 U.S. Open at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on September 13, 2010 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova defeated Liezel Huber and Nadia Petrova 26 64 76(4) on Monday after rain interrupted their match the previous day to win the U.S. Open women's doubles title, their second straight grand slam.

Rain stopped play on Sunday with King serving 4-5 in the third set, 0-15. Huber and Petrova quickly earned a match point but couldn't convert.

Leading 6-4 in the tiebreaker, Shvedova hit a perfect lob to clinch the championship.

"It was like slow motion, like in the movies," Shvedova said. "Vania was on the left and I was waiting. I saw Nadia trying to get it, then she didn't. People started to scream. They didn't call anything. I turned to Vania, and Vania jumped."


"Today I was really stressed because I didn't want to lose my serve at 4-5," King said. "I know my serve is not a rocket, so I was really hoping we'd pull that game out. But when we won, I was shocked. We were both shocked."

Huber, No.1 in doubles, was gracious. "When you lose a close match like this when you've had an opportunity, you can walk away from it and sulk and not learn, or you could take it as an opportunity to grow. If you do okay in the bad times, imagine how well you'll to do when times turn around. There's a reason for everything. It's disappointing, but I believe it's Vania and Yaroslava's time. They played great. They outsmarted us. They deserved to win this."
