MATTEK-SANDS, SAFAROVA CELEBRATE THIRD-STRAIGHT TITLE

In Beijing Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Lucie Safarova took home their third-straight title together, and couldn’t contain their excitement.

The duo bested Carolina Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic in the final, 6-4, 6-4.

They actually beat the same French duo last month for the US Open title (their third major win together), and two weeks ago, won the title in Wuhan (over Sania Mirza and Barbora Strycova).

Mattek-Sands and Safarova, a.k.a Team Bucie, have won eight total titles while partnered together, and are ranked No. 5 and No. 6, respectively.
