Good newz for India again!
Indian Tennis sensation Leander Paes and Zimbabwe's Cara Black won the US Open mixed doubles title on Thursday. The pair defeated Britain's Jamie Murray and American Liezel Huber 7-6 (8/6), 6-4 in the finals.
This win at the US open completes the career mixed doubles grand slams for Paes.
He won the French Open and Wimbledon alongside American Lisa Raymond in 1999 and the Wimbledon and Australian Open crowns in 2003 with US star Martina Navratilova.
Now in 2008 comes the US open crown with Cara Black.
Another great newz is Paes and Czech Lukas Dlouhy have advanced to Friday's US Open men's doubles final, where they will face US brothers Mike and Bob Bryan. Hope they defeat the tournament-favorite brothers.
As for Cara Black, she and Huber have advanced to the semi-finals in women's doubles!
Both are having a great run in US open in doubles category.
After the victories in Olympics , this is another victory by an Indian in International sport. Again another occasion to celebrate for India.
