Czech Barbora Strycova completed a memorable Wimbledon as she partnered Hsieh Su-wei to the women’s doubles title on Sunday, beating Canada/China duo Gabriela Dabrowski and Xu Yifan 6-2 6-4.
After the spine-tingling drama of the earlier men’s singles final — the longest in the tournament’s history — Strycova and her Taiwanese partner finally got on court to bring the curtain down on the fortnight with a straightforward victory.
“Oh my God, there is no word to describe the feeling,” said a beaming Strycova, who lost to Serena Williams in the women’s singles semi-finals. They became the first team to lift the doubles crown at Wimbledon without dropping a set since Serena and Venus Williams in 2009.
