Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina beat the Wimbledon curfew with a resounding victory in the women's doubles final.

The Russian pair of Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina won their maiden Wimbledon women's doubles title on Saturday with a thumping 6-0, 6-0 win over Taiwan's Hao-Ching Chan and Romanian Monica Niculescu.

The match lasted 4 hours, 40 minutes, only 21 minutes shorter than the longest men's doubles final in history.

The last 20 minutes of the men's final was played under a closed roof because of darkness.

Chan and Niculescu were playing just their second event together, though Chan was previously one half of a successful sister act with Chan Yung-jan (詹詠然).

Kubot also becomes a two-time grand slam champion after he won the Australian Open doubles title in 2014.

The roof over Centre Court, which was closed for the women's final earlier in the day, was open at the start of the men's doubles match.
