Sara Errani's dream fortnight in Paris continued when she teamed up with fellow Italian Roberta Vinci to win the women's doubles title at the French Open.
The win was a timely boost for Errani, who will face Maria Sharapova in the singles final on Saturday, having become the first player since Kim Clijsters in 2003 to reach both finals at Roland Garros.
Errani and Vinci faced the Russian duo Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova in the decider and prevailed 4-6 6-4 6-2 to claim their first Grand Slam doubles title.
The duo were runners-up at the Australian Open in January and are unbeaten on clay this season, having won 23 matches, and other titles in Acapulco, Barcelona, Madrid and Rome.
Errani said: "I just woke up and thought only about the doubles
"Tomorrow, I will think about the singles. I don't want to think about tomorrow now, because it is not good. I prefer to relax, and tomorrow we will see."
If Errani wins on Saturday, she will emulate France's Mary Pierce, who won both titles in 2000.
