Andrea Hlavackova and Max "The Beast" Mirnyi won the mixed doubles title at the U.S. Open today. Seeded 7th, Hlavackova and Mirnyi defeated Abigail Spears and Santiago Gonzalez 7-6, 6-3.
This was Mirnyi's third U.S. Open mixed doubles title, and Hlavackova's first major mixed doubles title. She and her partner, Lucie Hradecka, are trying to get to the women's doubles final, but first they have to get past Serena and Venus Williams. The players are warming up as I write this.
