Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina won the Wimbledon women's doubles title for the first time on Saturday with a crushing 6-0 6-0 victory over the pairing of Taiwan's Hao-Ching Chan and Romanian Monica Niculescu.

Those that hung around to watch the women were not delayed long as the second seeds thrashed their Chinese Taipei/Romanian opponents inside an hour to record their third grand slam crown.
