FLUSHING MEADOWS, New York, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Italian pair Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci clinched the women's doubles title of US Open on Sunday.
The second-seeded Italians beat third-seeded Czechs Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka 6-4, 6-2 for their second Grand Slam championship and second in three months after they broke through at the French Open.
The two players face each other in women's singles quarterfinals with 10th seeded Errani outlasted her friend and doulbes partner in two sets of 6-2, 6-4.
"Good thing is we can celebrate together," Errani said.
In singles, Errani was the runner-up at Roland Garros, and Vinci made her best Grand Slam run by reaching the quarters here.
Errani is the first Italian woman that reaches the semifinals at this tournament since the Open era began in 1968.
Errani lost to Serena Williams 6-1, 6-2 in the semis Friday.
