French Open women's doubles final: Barbora-Katerina vs Iga-Bethanie

Paris, Jun 11 (IANS): Czech Republic's Barbora Krejcikova could become the first woman since Mary Pierce of France in 2000 to clinch both the singles and doubles French Open titles after the 25-year-old advanced on Friday to the final with partner Katerina Siniakova .

Barbora and Katerina defeated Polish-American pair Magda Linette and Bernarda Pera 6-1, 6-2 on Friday.

Barbora and Katerina will meet Poland's Iga Swiatek and American Bethanie Mattek-Sands -- who overcame Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania and Nadia Podoroska of Argentina 6-3, 6-4 -- in the final.
