Petzschner-Melzer duo wins US Open doubles title
Ninth seeded duo of Jurgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner earned their second Grand Slam title in doubles on Saturday night after earning straight sets 6-2, 6-2 victory over sixth seeds Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski in the 2011 US Open final.

Jurgen Melzer and Philipp Petzschner won their second Grand Slam title in doubles on Saturday night after earning straight sets 6-2, 6-2 victory over sixth seeds Mariusz Fyrstenberg and Marcin Matkowski in the 2011 US Open final.

Earlier the Austrian-German duo won their maiden major title in just their seventh tournament together at Wimbledon in 2010 where they beat the pair of Lindstedt-Tecau.  In fact, the duo has won five titles overall, having also tasted victories this season at Rotterdam and Stuttgart.

After the match, jubilant Melzer said, "From the word go, we were playing really well." The Austrian further added that "The opponents were a little bit nervous from the beginning and we fully used that to our advantage." On the other hand, Petzschner added, "Winning another slam is an amazing feeling. We're both really happy the way it turned out."

I personally wanted the Italian duo to prevail, but a massive congratulations to these two. Melzer is a great player.
