The Italian duo of Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci completed a career grand-slam after they beat Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic 6-1 6-3 in the women's doubles final at Wimbledon on Saturday.

Ranked at No.2, they became the first pair to win all four grand slams since Serena and Venus Williams back in 2001. 

Rain disruption

It wasn't an easy win by any means, as the Italians had to battle with the heavy rain that poured down in South West London as the roof of the Centre Court closed with the four-time grand slam winners leading the match after winning the opening set in a mere 27 minutes.

Hungarian Babos and Mladenovic - who beat top seeds Su-Wei Hsieh and Peng Shuai in the semi-finals - looked to be fighting back somewhat in the second set but, just as it seemed that they were getting into some rhythm, rain came down again in the sixth game and that played a decisive role as they couldn't even get sniff a comeback afterwards.

No errors

Another notable thing about their victory was the fact that they didn't hit a single unforced error throughout the final that lasted less than an hour.

To control the nerves to this extent and put in your top performance is really something that makes you term this one of the best performances in a Wimbledon final.

The victory for Errani and Vinci now means that they add to their already a huge collection of titles namely the previous two Australian Open titles, 2012 French Open and U.S Open.
