Russia's Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina clinched the women's doubles title at Wimbledon in ruthless fashion, hammering Chan Hao-ching and Monica Niculescu 6-0 6-0.

"Actually, it was our goal for all the time that we were playing".

Murray got his hands on the Wimbledon mixed doubles silverware 10 years after first winning it with Jelena Jankovic.

"We were waiting for this title with Katia". "The year I won the French Open, I said my focus was to win here". Kubot won the 2014 Australian Open with Robert Lindstedt.

The top-seeded duo of American Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Czech Lucie Safarova had to withdraw before the second round after Mattek-Sands suffered a severe injury in a singles match.

The Brazilian-Polish men's doubles pair of Marcelo Melo and Lukasz Kubot took a marathon five sets to overcome Austrian-Croatian pair of Oliver Marach and Mate Pavic in the final of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

After the restart, Marach and Pavic were broken in their first service game, as the victorious duo won the final clash that lasted four hours and 39 minutes.

The entire women's match was played indoors on the Centre Court grass.

First there was one of the longest doubles finals in Wimbledon history.
