The Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina beat Hao-Ching Chan and Monica Niculescu 6-0 6-0 in just 56 minutes play. It was an historical Wimbledon women's doubles final in some ways, as only in 1953, before the Open Era, it happened that the other duo couldn't win any game in the last round of the event.

A close affair might have meant the match being halted and the outcome hanging in the balance overnight.

Chan said she is satisfied with her performance at Wimbledon because she and her partner were able to make it to the final.
