The Williams sisters, who entered the tournament unseeded, downed fifth-seeded Timea Babos and Yaroslava Shedova 6-3, 6-4.

The duo dominated on serve and broke their opponents three times to win the match. Despite it being her second match of the day, Serena Williams was determined to bring home another title for her older sister and she did not disappoint.


They have won titles at every Grand Slam event and are 14-0 in major finals.


Though the accomplishment is remarkable, Serena Williams is not even the first in her family to capture two Wimbledon titles on the same day. Sixteen years ago, her older sister achieved the same feat at the All England Club.

The sisters have been playing doubles in preparation for the upcoming Olympics. They won gold in 2012 and 2008.
