Two players of the 6th Sense Team were playing in the main draw of the US Open Junior.  Irina Khromacheva and Maryna Zanevska, defeated in the first and second round in the singles main draw, did great job in the doubles draw.  

Irina, 14 year, who was playing with her friend Daria Gavrilova, played a good tournament before loosing in the semi-finale against... Maryna Zanevska and Valeria Solovieva.  In the semi-finale, the 4 girls played a high level of tennis, with a victory of Maryna and Valeria, 10-8 in the super tie-break.  

In the finale, the two girls had to play the 3rd seed, Bogdan-Lertcheewakarn.  After loosing the first set 6-1, Maryna and Valeria played better to win the second set 6-3.  The super tie-break had to decide the winners of this US Open.  Zanevska-Solovieva took the advantage 9-5, and on their 3rd match point, they won the title!   

Maryna becomes the first "6th Sense player" to win a Grand Slam, her first Grand Slam title!  All the team congratulates her for her work, and wish her to continue in this way.
