Finals Day at this year's Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships kicked off with the doubles final.
Alla Kudryavtseva and Anastasia Rodionova just edged Americans Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears.
Kudryavtseva and Rodionova won their second Premier title of the year together, after Brisbane.
Alizé Cornet had taken out Serena Williams in the semifinals, and now she took on Venus Williams.
Cornet looked strong early on during the singles final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
But it has been almost four years since a player has beaten both Williams sisters at the same event...
And after Cornet held serve for 3-5 in the first set, Venus Williams found her range in a big way.
Williams steamrolled through seven straight games en route to a 63 60 championship victory.
Williams has now beaten Cornet in straight sets in all four of their career encounters.
Williams won her 45th WTA title - and her biggest title since winning right here in Dubai in 2010.
