NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on the U.S. Open tennis tournament (all times EDT):

1:40 p.m

Vera Zvonareva and Laura Siegemund won the U.S. Open women's doubles title in their first tournament together, beating the third-seeded duo of Xu Yifan and Nicole Melichar 6-4, 6-4.

Zvonareva, a Russian who turned 36 this week, added this title to the 2006 U.S. Open title she won with Nathalie Dechy. She also was the runner-up in singles at Flushing Meadows in 2010, falling to Kim Clijsters.

But she began playing less after giving birth to daughter Evelina in 2016.

Xu and Melichar finished second for the second straight tournament in New York. They were runners-up at the Western & Southern Open that's usually played in Ohio.

12:30 p.m.

The men's semifinal matches will be played after the women's doubles championship is awarded at the U.S. Open.

Play began with the third-seeded team of Xu Yifan and Nicole Melichar playing the unseeded duo of Vera Zvonareva and Laura Siegemund.

They were to be followed by Alexander Zverev against Pablo Carreno Busta, along with 2019 runner-up Daniil Medvedev facing No. 2 seed Dominic Thiem. None has won a Grand Slam title.

Comfortable weather returned after the women's singles semifinals were played with the Arthur Ashe Stadium roof closed Thursday night because of rain.
