Hungary’s Timea Babos and France’s Kristina Mladenovic won the French Open women’s doubles title when they thrashed China’s Duan Yingying and Zheng Saisai 6-2 6-3 in the final on Sunday.

The second seeds claimed their second Grand Slam title together after last year’s Australian Open, where they finished runners-up this year.

It is Mladenovic’s third major doubles title after she also paired up with fellow Frenchwoman Caroline Garcia to win the French Open in 2016.

Sunday’s triumph means that Mladenovic will take over from Czech Katerina Siniakova as doubles’ world number one in the WTA rankings on Monday.
