The second seeded Indo-Czezh combination had an easy outing against the Chinese duo as they took just 51 minutes to down their rivals 6-1 6-1 in the final of the women's doubles event.

This is Sania and Strycova's second title in three tournaments since they have paired together.

Last month, Sania and Strycova won the Cincinnati Open title with a 7-5 6-4 win in the final against the Indian's previous partner Martina Hingis and Coco Vandeweghe.

However, Sania and Strycova were ousted from the US Open after losing in straight sets in the quarterfinal to Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic.
