(AP) Hsieh Su-wei and Peng Shuai 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.


Hsieh became the first player from Taiwan to win a Grand Slam title, while Peng gave China its first doubles title at a major in seven years.


The eighth-seeded Hsieh and Peng, who did not face a seeded opponent 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.
