Cara Black of Zimbabwe and Liezel Huber of the United States won their fourth women's doubles Grand Slam title at the US Open on Sunday.

The top seeds beat Lisa Raymond of the US and Australian Samantha Stosur 6-3 7-6 (8-6) for their first US Open win.

Huber, born in South Africa but a US citizen since 2007, said: "I don't know whether to sing the anthem, cartwheel or just encourage you all to vote."

She added: "I am just the proudest American right now."

Black had already teamed up with India's Leander Paes to win the mixed doubles, when she beat Huber and Briton Jamie Murray in the final.

"For Liezel, playing that match against her the other day was one of the toughest matches I've ever played," she said, "so I really wanted to win it for her."

In the junior finals, CoCo Vandeweghe of the US defeated Gabriela Paz Franco of Venezuela 7-6 (7-3) 6-1 for the girls' title, and Wimbledon junior champion Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria beat Devin Britton of the US 6-4 6-3 for the boys' title.
