PARIS – Timea Babos, Diede de Groot, and Daniel Wagner each ended their slam season with another major title.
Women’s Doubles: Repeat for Babos
Timea Babos (HUN) partnered with Kristina Mladenovic to win their second-straight Roland Garros doubles title and fourth overall as a team.
The duo, who also won the 2020 Australian Open earlier in the year, enjoyed a little bit of revenge after being forced to withdraw from the US Open due to COVID-19 protocols in early-September.
"I'm really, really happy after US Open to take the title here. It's somehow very, very special. I always say it's special, but this, it's different. It's like a weird feeling. It's even hard to describe," said Babos.
