Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova won the Wimbledon women’s doubles title. 

The Czech team of Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova won the Wimbledon women’s doubles championship for the second time on Sunday by defeating top seeds Elise Mertens and Zhang Shuai 6-2 6-4.

The second seeds, who also triumphed in the competition in 2018, lost only one set en route to their second victory of the year after winning the Australian Open and their sixth Grand Slam overall.

The women’s match was finished in 67 minutes as the Czechs asserted their dominance and prevented Belgian Mertens from winning back-to-back championships at the All England Club.

In contrast, the men’s doubles final on Saturday lasted more than four hours.

In the Wimbledon final, Krejcikova said, “I don’t believe it matters what category you play; you always have goosebumps when you approach the court.”

“We love playing on large courts. Therefore I believe that we appreciated the setting. We had a powerful desire to prevail right away. I’m really pleased that we did it and won another award.”

In the first set, the Czech duo broke early to go up 3-0 and never looked back as they won it in 30 minutes.

Despite being in trouble after they were broken at 3-3 in the second, allowing Mertens and Zhang to mount a comeback, they fought back to win the next three games with a loss of only one point to secure the win.

The Czechs, who also won Olympic gold in Tokyo last year, have won 17 matches together at Wimbledon. Krejcikova said they have their sights set on additional doubles wins despite their commitments to singles.

“Sure, we have a lot of objectives. However, I believe the slams are the key objectives. I truly want to succeed there, “She stated.

We want to keep going, keep having fun, and improve as players and people every day.
