LONDON -- Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova are one win away from back-to-back Grand Slam titles after advancing to the Wimbledon women's doubles final with a 7-5, 6-4 victory over Alicja Rosolska and Abigail Spears on Friday.
After winning their first major crown at the French Open last month, the Czech pairing have transferred their clay-court form to grass to reach a first Wimbledon final.
The third-seeded Krejcikova and Siniakova, both 22, next face another Czech player -- who is nearly twice as old.
Krejcikova and Siniakova missed two chances to serve out the first set from 5-2 up, but regained their composure to break once more at 5-5 and served out at the third attempt. One break of serve was enough to see them through the second set against their unseeded opponents.
The 12th-seeded Peschke and Melichar came from a break down in the final set to see off the sixth-seeded pairing of Dabrowski of Canada and Xu of China.
