LONDON, Great Britain
Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina endured a late start out on Centre Court, but made up for lost time with a 6-0, 6-0 victory over Chan Hao-Ching and Monica Niculescu to take home third third Grand Slam title - their first at Wimbledon.
"We were waiting for this title with Katya," Vesnina said after the match. "When we lost at the French Open, we didn't play a good match there at all. We were sitting in the locker room, I told Katya, 'We have to win Wimbledon. We won French Open. We won it in 2013. We have to win Wimbledon.'
"It was our goal for the whole time that we've been playing. We had that close final two years ago, lost 7-5 in the third. We had it in our minds that we didn't finish something here. We need to finish it in the right way."
