Americans Emma Navarro and Chloe Beck took home the girls' doubles title Saturday at the 2019 French Open, upsetting the No. 4-seeded Russian duo of Alina Charaeva and Anastasia Tikhonova, 6-1, 6-2, in the final.
The unseeded American team had a busy day in Paris, also playing their semifinal match Saturday—a 6-3, 3-6, [17-15] win over No. 7 seeds Adrienn Nagy of Hungary and Sohyun Park of Korea.
Navarro (pictured above), an 18-year-old from New York City, and Beck, 17, from Athens, Ga., have had previous success together in Grand Slam play, reaching the girls' doubles semifinals at the 2018 US Open and the final at the 2019 Australian Open.
Navarro also played in the girls' singles final on Day 14 at Roland Garros, falling to top-seeded Leylah Annie Fernandez of Canada, 6-3, 6-2, in the title match.
In other junior action Saturday, Toby Alex Kodat finished runner-up in boys' singles to No. 7 seed Holger Vitus Nodskov Rune of Denmark, with Rune defeating Kodat, 3-6, 7-6 (5), 6-0, for the championship.
