Safin wins first Grand Slam title

Pete Sampras' hopes of extending his record of Grand Slam titles were ended by Russia's Marat Safin on Sunday, as the 20-year-old whipped Sampras in three sets to win his first Grand Slam title. Safin, who beat Sampras in the finals of the Tennis Masters Series - Toronto in August, was equally as impressive in his first Grand Slam final. The win also prevented another American sweep at Flushing Meadows, following Venus Williams' victory over Lindsay Davenport on Saturday night.
