PARIS — American Coco Gauff won her first Grand Slam doubles title on Sunday with Czech Republic’s Katerina Siniakova at the French Open.

Gauff, 20, and Siniakova, 28, beat Italians Jasmine Paolini and Sara Errani 7-6 (5), 6-3, according to The Associated Press.

It was the first time Gauff and Siniakova played together, The Athletic reported. Gauff and Siniakova became the first women’s doubles team to win a Grand Slam in their tournament debut, NBC News reported. The last time this happened was at the 2020 U.S. Open when Russian Vera Zvonareva and German Laura Siegemund teamed up.

Gauff’s regular partner, American Jessica Pregula, was out injured, according to The Athletic.

“Hopefully we can play a few more matches,” Siniakova told Gauff in the trophy ceremony, according to NBC News.

This is the first Grand Slam doubles title for Gauff after she lost the two finals, which were the French Open in 2022 and the U.S. Open in 2021, The Athletic reported. Siniakova has won eight.

Gauff won the U.S. Opens singles title last year, the AP reported.
