Timea Bacsinszky and Tathiana Garbin are building up quite a resume together, as in just their 13th event as a duo - all this year - they won their third title Sunday, to go along with two runner-up showings.

Seeded second in Luxembourg, Bacsinszky and Garbin defeated top-seeded Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, 64 64. They are now 3-0 against the Czechs, having also beaten them this year in the round of 16 in Prague and the semis in Bad Gastein.

Bacsinszky and Garbin's other two titles came this summer at Budapest and Prague. Bacsinszky has never won without Garbin, but Garbin has eight doubles titles with other players.

Meanwhile, a duo that's having an even better 2010 - Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta - triumphed in the Moscow final on Saturday. The No.1 seeds edged No.3 seeds Sara Errani and María José Martínez Sánchez, 63 26 106, taking the last four points of the match tie-break after it was knotted at 6-6.
