Stosur and Shuai defeated American teens Coco Gauff and Caty McNally 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 on Sunday to clinch the duo’s second Grand Slam championship. The team previously won the 2019 Australian Open and came into the US Open fresh off of a doubles title in Cincinnati.
Neither side had dropped a set coming into the final, which amounted to a two-hour, three-set battle.
Stosur and Shuai went up a break in the decisive third set to secure the title inside Arthur Ashe Stadium.
