Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova and Vera Zvonareva beat Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci 5-7 6-4 6-3 to win the Australian Open women's doubles title.

The unseeded duo - who are both better known for their performances in singles - had not played together since the French Open last year.

But they were highly impressive against the Italians, who were taking part in their first Grand Slam final together.

Their previous best was reaching last year's US Open quarter-finals.
