The Winners of the US Open 2010

Here are the list of the winners of the US Open 2010. With their sportswear uniforms they are definitely bringing home the bacon with them. Hope to see them in the next US Open.

Men Division

Rafael Nadal

“That’s what I dreamt. It’s just amazing to be in there in this final to me. Just the ride to the final was amazing. Just to have the trophy in my hands in a moment will be unbelievable.”

He beat Novak Djokovic to win his first US Open and join six of the game's greatest players as the owner of all four grand slam titles. At the end, Nadal rolled like a kid on the hard court, the surface that was supposed to be beyond him. Now he ruled the tennis world. He is the first Spaniard to win the U.S. Open men’s singles title since Manuel Orantes in 1975 and the first left-hander to win it since John McEnroe in 1984.

Nadal's smile remained fixed in victory, more eloquent than a thousand words. "It's more than what I dreamt," he said in his charming, halting English. His ninth slam not only puts him seven behind the faltering Federer, but lifts him alongside Fred Perry, Don Budge, Rod Laver, Roy Emerson, Andre Agassi and Federer as owners of all the four slams.The US Open win will be Nadal's 9th Grand Slam Title. He also has won the last 3 consecutive slams, and will no doubt be looking to take the Australian Open as well, making it 4 out of 4 in slams, something that has not been achieved since Rod Laver did it in the late 60s.

Men Doubles

Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan

 “This has been the best match we ever played. These guys played incredible. We had to step up and match their energy.” _Bob Bryan_

Twin brothers who won their ninth Grand Slam tournament and third U.S. Open title against Pakistan’s Aisamul Haq Qureshi and India’s Rohan Bopanna. They were the World No. 1 doubles player for 201 weeks. Between 2005 and 2006, they set an Open Era record by competing in seven consecutive men's doubles Grand Slam finals, three of which they won. On February 26, 2010, they recorded their Open Era record 600th match win by defeating Taylor Dent and Ryan Harrison in the semi-finals of the Delray Beach ATP 250 tournament. Born on April 29, 1978, with Mike being older by two minutes, and Bob taller by 3 cm, The Bryans, as they are known, have won a record 65 tour titles, surpassing The Woodies. They have a career Grand Slam that includes victories at the French Open (2003), US Open (2005, 2008 and 2010), Australian Open (2006, 2007, 2009 and 2010), and Wimbledon (2006). They won the Tennis Masters Cup Doubles tournament thrice (2003, 2004 and 2009), and have been finalists in 38 other occasions. They won the bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. They also won the 2007 Davis Cup along with Andy Roddick and James Blake.

Women Division

Kim Clijsters

"I'm glad to be standing here as the winner now. New York is an amazing place for me. The U.S. Open brings nothing but happiness to my tennis life."

She is the first woman since Venus Williams in 2000-01 to win the title in Flushing Meadows two years in a row. And Clijsters' U.S. Open winning streak is actually up to 21 matches because she also won the 2005 title. She missed the tournament in 2006 because of injuries, including wrist surgery, and skipped it the next two years while taking time off to get married and have a baby. Clijsters won a second consecutive U.S. Open championship and third overall by easily beating Vera Zvonareva 6-2, 6-1 in a final that lasted 59 minutes and lacked any drama — perfect for a tot's short attention span.

Women Doubles

Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova

“It is kind of unbelievable for me. I don’t feel like we have won the title as it all happened so quickly today,” _Shvedova_

Vania King from America along with partner Yaroslava Shvedova from Kazakhstan won the United States Open Women’s doubles title after defeating Nadia Petrova and Liezel Huber in a total of three sets on Monday. The final match score was 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (4).

Mixed Double

Liezel Huber and Bob Bryan

"He wants to chest bump, chest bump, chest bump. I'm like, no. Do it with your girlfriend; don't chest bump me." _Liezel Huber_

Top-seeded Americans Liezel Huber and Bob Bryan won their second Grand Slam title in mixed doubles Thursday. Liezel Huber and Bob Bryan won their second Grand Slam mixed doubles title. The pair beat Kveta Peschke of the Czech Republic and Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan 6-4, 6-4. Huber and Bryan also won last year's French Open. Huber, who was born in South Africa and became an American citizen in 2007.

Junior Division

Jack Sock and Daria Gavrilova

“No, I think us, as in ‘juniors’—we’re just doing what we can. We’re practicing hard and we’re working hard and doing what we can to improve. Hopefully we can get to that level one day and be in the American tennis spotlight. Hopefully.”  _Jack Sock_

Jack Sock beat Denis Kudla 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 Sunday to win the U.S. Open boys’ title in the first all-American junior final at Flushing Meadows in a decade while top-seeded Daria Gavrilova beat Yulia Putintseva 6-3, 6-2 in an all-Russian girls’ final.
