Paris, June 13 (MNN) French Open champion Barbora Krejcikova completed a rare sweep of titles at the Roland-Garros as she won a third women’s doubles major trophy along with Czech teammate Katerina Siniakova on Sunday.

Number 2 seeded Czech pair of Krejcikova and Siniakova defeated Poland’s Iga Swiatek and Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the US 6-4 6-2 in one-hour and 14-minute t claim the women’s doubles title for the second time.

Krejcikova and Siniakova have now won three Grand Slam women’s doubles titles in their careers.

They triumphed in Paris for their first crown in 2018, then quickly followed up with the Wimbledon title the very next month.

Krejcikova and Siniakova’s surge to the top of the game was presaged when they won the Roland Garros junior doubles title in 2013 — the first of the three straight junior Grand Slams they would win as a duo.

Krejcikova has become the first player to win both the women’s singles and doubles event at the French Open since Mary Pierce achieved the feat way back in 2000.

Krejcikova has also become the first woman to win both the singles and doubles events at a Grand Slam since Serena Williams in 2016.

Krejcikova will reclaim the number one spot in the doubles rankings next week.

The Czech has won her first French Open singles title after defeating Russia’s Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, which is her maiden Grand Slam singles title.
