Doubles Tennis Final 2007
Safina Adds Doubles Title to Family Slams
Dinara Safina won her first Grand Slam title at the 2007 US Open – seven years after her older brother, Marat Safin, won his first Slam at Flushing Meadows.
On Sunday, Safina and Nathalie Dechy defeated Yung-Jan Chan and Chai-Jung Chuang of Chinese Taipei for the women’s doubles title, 6-4, 6-2.
Afterwards, Safina said, “It’s kind of a family tradition,” to start winning slams in New York, adding, “I hope to win singles here, too,” as Marat did in 2000. (Safina lost to the eventual champion, Justine Henin, in the fourth round this year.)
In the second set, Chan was broken in the second game, Chaung was broken in the fourth game, and soon Safina and Dechy were up 5-0. It took three more games before Safin and Dechy could close out the set and match at 6-2.
