Political statement follows doubles win by Rojer and Tecau


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Jean-Julien Rojer of the Netherlands and Romanian Horia Tecau eased past Feliciano and Marc Lopez 6-4 6-3 to claim their first U.S. Open doubles grand slam with Rojer making a small political statement following the win on Friday.

The 12th seeded Rojer and Tecau, who rallied from a set down to upset top seeded Henri Kontinen and John Peers in the semi-finals, needed just 86 minutes on a sunny Arthur Ashe Stadium court to add the U.S. Open championship to the Wimbledon title they won in 2015.
