LONDON (AP) -- Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci completed a career doubles Grand Slam on Saturday with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic in the Wimbledon women's final.

The Italian pair, playing in their eighth Grand Slam final, broke their opponents' serve in the sixth game of the final set under a closed roof on Centre Court - rain began falling shortly after Petra Kvitova's singles final win over Eugenie Bouchard.

The Italians, who fell to the ground and hugged after the match ended, have now won five of the last 10 Grand Slam doubles titles.

Babos, from Hungary, and French player Mladenovic, were making their debut as a team in a Grand Slam tournament.
