WTA Doubles World No.1 Barbora Strycova

Following a first Grand Slam title for the pair, Strycova, 33, moves to number one in the women's doubles rankings.

Czech Barbora Strycova completed a memorable Wimbledon as she and partner Su-Wei Hsieh claimed the women's doubles title on Sunday, beating Canada/China duo Gabriela Dabrowski and Yifan Xu 6-2 6-4.

Ottawa's Gabriela Dabrowski and partner Xu Yifan of China finish 2nd in Wimbledon's women's doubles after finals loss to Barbora Strýcová and HsiehSu-wei. The 27-year-old Dabrowski, who started playing tennis at age seven, has won two Grand Slam titles in mixed doubles - in the French Open in 2017 (with Rohan Bopanna of India) and the Australian Open in 2018 (with Mate Pavic of Croatia).

Patrick Mahomes throws football out of Arrowhead Stadium
Mahomes, 23, completed 66 percent of his passes last season for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. This was likely planned as the Chiefs star quarterback threw the ball over the Chiefs sign at the stadium.

Hsieh and Strycova kept their momentum going, breaking Dabrowski to open the second set, but Dabrowski and Xu upped their aggression, firing back with strong returns and sturdy volleys to break back for 1-1.

Both teams then had to fend off multiple break points, at 3-1 and 3-2 respectively, but there were no more breaks of serve for the remainder of the tilt.

Sunday's match was originally scheduled for Saturday evening at the All-England Club, but was postponed due to the men's double's final running long.
