Russia's Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina claimed their first Wimbledon and third major doubles title with a 6-0, 6-0 shellacking of Monica Niculescu and Chan Hao-Ching late Saturday evening, after the marathon Men's Doubles final had been completed.

The second seeded Russian combine on Saturday eased to a 6-0, 6-0 mauling of the ninth seeded Taiwan-Romanian pair.

They also won the 2013 French Open and 2014 US Open women's doubles crowns.

"It's very special", Vesnina told Wimbledon's official website.

It was a dominant women's doubles final at Wimbledon. When we lost at the French Open, we didn't play a good match there at all. She was 35 when she won this year's Australian Open.

With a light rain falling and the women's final between Venus Williams and Garbine Muguruza due to start in about an hour, the roof over the main stadium has already been closed to ensure play will begin on time.

"We had that close final two years ago, lost from 7-5 in the third", Vesnina said. "We need to finish it in the right way".

The winning pair will receive £400,000 each in prize money.
