It looked good for Daniela Hantuchova and Ai Sugiyama when the women's doubles final at the Australian Open began. They just missed going up two breaks in the first set, and that was the last time they would have that much momentum. There were multiple breaks of serve throughout the match, however, and more often than not, they were consecutive. There were also a lot of balls that were hit into players' bodies.
Hantuchova and Sugiyama had a great run in Melbourne, but in the end, they could not out play the lightning-fast Williams sisters. This is the sisters' eighth major doubles title.
Williams/Williams def. Hantuchova/Sugiyama, 6-3, 6-3
