    Martina Hingis won her second Grand Slam title in 2 days as she, along with partner Chan Yung-Jan, won the US Open women's doubles final against Lucie Hradecka and Katerina Siniakova.

    Hingis has secured her 25th career Grand Slam title with this win.  

    Hingis and Chan were in total control of the match since the beginning. They never faced a break point, and disposed of the Czech team 6-3, 6-2 in straight sets at the Arthur Ashe Stadium on Sunday.

    A day before, Hingis won the mixed doubles title at the Flushing Meadows with Britain's Jamie Murray.

    Hingis has now won five Grand Slam singles titles, seven in mixed doubles and 13 in doubles, in the 21 years since scooping her first major title in the 1996 Wimbledon doubles.

    This was also Chan's first Grand Slam title ever, after twice being a women's doubles runner-up, as well as a one-time mixed doubles finalist. 

    "It's like a real dream come true, like living my dream." Chan said.

    For Hingis, it was a 25th career Grand Slam title overall and her third of the year.

    She won the 1997 US and Australian Open and Wimbledon singles titles and the 1998 and 1999 Australian Open singles crowns as well as seven mixed doubles titles, including this year's Wimbledon and US Open mixed titles.

    "It was an amazing feeling to play here in the singles final," Hingis said of her 1997 Arthur Ashe Stadium finals debut.

    "Coming back 20 years later, it has been a wonderful journey."
