Tennis: Errani-Vinci retain Australian Open doubles title
Italians beat Russian pair for fourth grand slam crown24 January, 11:29
It is the fourth glam slam doubles title for Errani and Vinci.
In addition to triumphing last year in Melbourne, the world's top-ranked doubles pairing also won the French Open and the US Open in 2012. They had to work hard on Friday though as Makarova and Vesnina came back strongly after losing the first set.
The intense match lasted over two hours, with the third set alone taking 55 minutes, before Errani and Vinci prevailed.
