Mirnyi, Hlavackova win mixed doubles
NEW YORK (AP)
Max Mirnyi won his fourth Grand Slam mixed doubles title Friday, teaming with Andrea Hlavackova (lav-atch-KO-va) for a 7-6 (5), 6-3 victory over Santiago Gonzalez and Abigail Spears at the U.S. Open.
The 36-year-old Mirnyi also has six major titles in men's doubles. This 2013 championship comes 15 years after he teamed with Serena Williams to win his first two mixed-doubles majors, at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
This is the first major mixed title for Hlavackova, who also won the 2011 French Open in women's doubles.
The winners get $75,000 each.
