Hantuchova & Bhupathi take title
Mahesh Bhupathi and Daniela Hantuchova
Daniela Hantuchova completed the set of Grand Slam mixed doubles titles with victory alongside India's Mahesh Bhupathi at the US Open.

The pair beat Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik and Nenad Zimonjic of Serbia and Montenegro 6-4 6-2 in the Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"It feels great," said Slovakia's Hantuchova. "I'm so happy right now.

"This was the last one I was missing and finally I got it, thanks to an unbelievable partner on my side."

Bhupathi, who claimed his seventh Grand Slam doubles title, said: "We had a lot of fun.

"We saved a match point in the first round and after that she told me we're probably going to win it now."

Hantuchova won the French Open mixed title this year alongside Fabrice Santoro of France.

She also won the Australian Open title in 2002 with Kevin Ullyett, and Wimbledon in 2001 with Leos Friedl.
