NEW YORK (AP) Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the United States and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic won the U.S. Open women's doubles title for their third Grand Slam trophy as a pair, beating the top-seeded French team of Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic 2-6, 7-6 (5), 6-4 on Sunday.

Mattek-Sands and Safarova, who were seeded 12th, added this championship to those from the Australian Open and French Open in 2015.

They trailed by a set and a break on Sunday before coming all the way back. They broke for the first time in the match when Garcia served for the victory at 5-4 in the second set.

Mattek-Sands and Safarova broke Garcia again in the opening game of the third set.
