Another career doubles title for New Zealand tennis player Erin Routliffe as she teamed with Canadian Gaby Dabrowski to win the rain-delayed Nottingham WTA event.

The top seeds Routliffe and Dabrowski had to play their semifinal earlier in the day, which they won over American Ashlyn Krueger and Shuai Zhang (China) 6-0 6-4.

They then returned to the court for the final and played out a dramatic match beating Britain's Harriet Dart and Frenchwoman Diane Parry 5-7, 6-3, 11-9in an hour 42 minutes for the title.

It was the third title together for Routliffe and Dabrowski and first on grass as they build up to Wimbled just a couple of weeks away.

“Harriet and Diane you guys had a great week and that was a really tough match,” said Routliffe.

“This is Gabi’s first tournament back in two and half months and it’s really hard to come and play after you’ve been out for a while, and she did an amazing job this week.”

It was the sixth career title for Routliffe who is currently ranked third in the world, but could rise to second as a result of the win.

The next tournament for the New Zealander and Canadian is the WTA 500 event at Birmingham where they are the second seeds.
