NEW YORK (AP) -- Let those big-spending spectators or TV types gripe about Justine Henin's lopsided Grand Slam final victories.

She'll take 'em. Every last one.

Capping a dominant run, the top-seeded Henin overwhelmed No. 4 Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1, 6-3 Saturday night to win her second U.S. Open title and seventh major championship overall.

Henin, who also won the 2003 Open, did not drop a set all tournament and became the first woman to win a Grand Slam after beating both Williams sisters along the way.

Kuznetsova matched the fewest number of games for an Open women's runner-up in the past 31 years.
