Taiwanese tennis player Chan Hao-ching (詹皓晴) and her Romanian partner Monica Niculescu were overwhelmed in the women's doubles final at Wimbledon on Saturday by their rivals Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation.

It was the first "double bagel" in a Wimbledon mixed final since 1919 when Briton Randolph Lycett and American Elizabeth Ryan inflicted the punishment on British players Albert Prebble and Dorothea Lambert Chambers.

They also won their 10th doubles title together, the second one this year after 2017 Dubai, and it is definitely one of the most important ones. They lost the first set but bounced back in the next two.


The partnership of the Polish and the Brazilian has achieved the pair the title of the Wimbledon Men's Double winners.

The match being played at the Centre Court was suspended at 11-11 and then resumed with the roof being closed.

She also won the French Open past year.
