This is my first WTA title so I'm really happy right now. It's such a nice feeling getting to the end of the week and being the last ones here. We knew it wasn't going to be an easy match today - they're both great players and we knew we would really have to win it, they weren't going to give it to us.
– Heather Watson - British womens number 1 tennis player
Laura Robson has congratulated Heather Watson and Marina Erakovic after they were crowned Bank of the West Classic champions. Robson and Watson will play together as Team GB's womens doubles team in the Olympics.
Heather Watson's Olympic preparations took another boost last night as the 20 year-old claimed her first WTA Tour doubles title.
The British number 1 and partner Marina Erakovic beat top seeds Vania King and Jarmila Gajdosova in straight sets in the final of the Bank of the West Classic.
Watson and her partner from New Zealand had already beaten the second and third seeds on their way to the final, where they came out 7-5 7-6 (9/7) winners against players ranked seventh and 37th in the world.
She will now turn her attention to the Mercury Insurance Open in California next week, before being partnered by Laura Robson as one half of Team GB's Olympic womens tennis doubles team.
