Russian tennis duo, Elena Vesnina and Ekaterina Makarova crushed No.9 seeds Chan Hao-Ching and Monica Niculescu 6:0, 6:0 in less than an hour to bring home their first Wimbledon title.

The No.2 seeded Russian pair produced a dominant performance, needing only 55 minutes to secure victory in one of the most prestigious Grand Slam events, giving their less experienced opponents from Taiwan and Romania no chance for a comeback. She also won the French Open previous year.

It was Makarova and Vesnina's second attempt at the Wimbledon doubles title.

"We were waiting for this title with Katia".

"Actually, it was our goal for all the time that we were playing". Makarova and Vesnina triumphed for the third time at Grand Slam level, after 2013 Roland Garros and 2014 US Open, which means at next year's Australian Open they will bid to achieve Career Grand Slam.

The winning doubles pair win £200,000 each in prize money.
