LONDON -- Peng Shuai and Hsieh Su-wei won their first Grand Slam title with a 7-6 (1), 6-1 victory Saturday over Australian duo Ashleigh Barty and Casey Dellacqua in the women's doubles final at Wimbledon.
Peng gave China its first doubles title at a major in seven years.
The eighth-seeded Peng and Hsieh, who did not face a seeded team until the final, started playing together in 2008, when they won their first 11 matches. They now have six titles together.
The 12th-seeded Dellacqua and Barty were bidding to become the first all-Australian team to win the women's title at the All England Club since 1978.
