Martina and Flavia have had an amazing run, knocking out three seeded pairs on their road to the final, even defeating favorites like Kveta Peschke/Katarina Srebotnik and Cara Black/Sania Mirza. Furthermore, this amazing duo made it all the way to the final without losing a single set. "We teamed up in the middle of the season and two months later we're here in the finals of the US Open - I could have only dreamed of this when we started playing together. It's been an incredible journey here," said Martina on her time this Grand Slam tournament in a comment posted on the official WTA website.
The following day had Anhelina Kalinina (VCORE Xi 100, POLYTOUR SPIN) in the girls’ singles final against Marie Bouzkova. The match proved to be a tough two-hour affair, running into a tiebreaker in the second set. While she was the runner-up, Anhelina has results to brag about after this US Open, blazing through nearly all of her matches without losing a set. We look forward to more progress from her in the future. In other juniors news, Viktoria Kuzmova(VCORE Xi 100, POLYTOUR PRO 125) became the girls’ doubles semifinalist.
YONEX players have had a great run this US Open, and we look forward to their performance in the next Grand Slam— 2015’s Australian Open!
