Chennai Open: Dabrowski and Stefani capture women’s doubles title

Ottawa’s Gabriela Dabrowski and her partner Luisa Stefani of Brazil clinched their second women’s doubles tennis title, winning Sunday’s Chennai Open.

Top seeds Dabrowski and Stefani made quick work of Russia’s Anna Blinkova and Natela Dzalamidze in a 6-1, 6-2 win.

A day earlier, the duo defeated Peangtarn Plipuech of Thailand and Moyuka Uchijima of Japan to advance to the final.

Blinkova and Dzalamidze won their semifinals on Friday against Montreal’s Eugenie Bouchard and Belgium’s Yanina Wickmayer after Bouchard was eliminated from the game due to injury.
