Babos and Mladenovic clinch French Open women’s doubles title
PARIS (FRANCE) – Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic retained their French Open doubles title. With this, they claimed their fourth Grand Slam as a pair with a 6-4 7-5 victory against Desirae Krawczyk and Alexa Guarachi in the Roland Garros final on Sunday.
Hungary’s Babos and local favourite Kristina Mladenovic, had to withdraw from the US Open due to COVID-19 protocols. They have together won four of the last 11 women’s majors.
It is Mladenovic’s fifth women’s doubles Grand Slam title after she also won the French Open with fellow Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia in 2016.
Babos won all her women’s doubles Grand Slam titles with Mladenovic.
Second seeds Mladenovic and Babos decisively stole 14th seeds American Krawzcyk and Chilean Guarachi for 5-3 and grabbed the opening set in 50 minutes.
