LONDON: Italy's Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci became just the fifth pair to complete a women's doubles career Grand Slam when they beat Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic in the Wimbledon final on Saturday.

The Italian second seeds won 6-1, 6-3 under the roof on Centre Court in just 56 minutes against the 14th-seeded Hungarian/French team.

"We are friends and we are like a team together all the day with our families, our coaches," said Errani.

"We all help each other very much so this is important when you go on the court."

The pair also won the Australian Open final this year before finishing runners-up at the French Open.
