Clay not required: Errani and Vinci win U.S. Open
The U.S. Open championship is the 8th title of the year for Errani and Vinci. Their on-court celebration after the match, led by Vinci, was a highlight of the week--a Petko-worthy dance moment (as opposed to Azarenka and Stosur).
Meanwhile, seemingly out of nowhere, an unseeded wild card, Atlanta-born Samantha Crawford won the junior title. Crawford defeated seed Anett Kontaviet 7-5, 6-3. Crawford ended the match with some the unusual first-and-second serve win percentage stats of 60 and 82. She hit six winners and made only two unforced errors.
