Serena and Venus Williams won their sixth Wimbledon doubles championship and 14th Grand Slam title as a pair on Sunday, defeating fifth-seeded Timea Babos of Hungary and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan, 6-3, 6-4.

Serena heads home from the All England Club with two trophies: The doubles final started a little more than 3 hours after she beat Angelique Kerber for the singles championship Saturday.

The Williams sisters also won the doubles title at Wimbledon in 2000, 2002, 2008, 2009 and 2012, and each time, one of them also won the singles championship.

They’re now 14-0 in major doubles finals.
