Sisters Serena and Venus completed a 'Williams slam' of four consecutive grand slam doubles titles when they beat Kveta Peschke and Katarina Srebotnik 6-2, 6-3 on Friday to win the French Open.

The Americans wrapped up victory in 73 minutes to win their 12th grand slam title together, adding the trophy to the ones they won at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open last year and at the Australian Open in January.

The top seeds are only the third doubles partnership in the history of the women's game to hold all four grand slam titles at the same time.

They will become the top-ranked doubles pairing on Monday, making Serena Williams only the sixth woman to hold top spot in the singles and doubles at the same time.
