Serena and Venus Williams rolled to their sixth Wimbledon doubles title on Saturday with a 6–3, 6–4 win in straight sets over Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shvedova.

The win marks the first Grand Slam doubles win for the Williams sisters since 2012. It is their 14th Grand Slam win as a doubles pair, and they remain undefeated in doubles finals. They previously won at Wimbledon in 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2012.

Earlier in the day, Serena won her seventh Wimbledon title, the 22nd major title win of her career, tying Steffi Graf’s Open-era record with a dominant win over Angelique Kerber.

Serena and Venus will compete together next at the Rio Olympics. They have won three Olympic gold medals together playing doubles.
