Anabel Medina Garrigues and Yaroslava Shvedova win doubles title in Charleston

Tennis - Spain's Anabel Medina Garrigues and Kazakhstan's Yaroslava Shvedova have won the WTA Family Circle Cup doubles title. The two doubles aces defeated the Taiwanese sisters Chan Hao-Ching and Chan Yung-Jan 76(4) 62 - after saving a set point in the first set.

Shvedova, whose biggest successes have come in doubles, commented, "We were told it was going to rain, and if we stopped, we would have to come back on another court. So we were happy to stay on the center court, even though it was raining in the beginning.

I think the whole set it was drizzling, but we didn't complain. We had to finish because I have a flight to catch later today!" This is their third title together. Medina Garrigues now has 23 doubles titles to her name while Shvedova has 10.

Meanwhile in Mexico, third seeds Darija Jurak and Megan Moulton-Levy won the WTA Monterrey Open doubels title after beating top seeds Timea Babos and Olga Govortsova 7-6(5) 3-6 11-9.
