Canadian Eugenie Bouchard made it two Wimbledon titles in two days on Sunday after she and American partner Taylor Townsend captured the girls' doubles championship.

The top-seeded pair defeated fourth seeds Belinda Bencic of Switzerland and Ana Konjuh of Croatia 6-4, 6-3.

It was the second straight junior doubles title for Bouchard, who also won last year with a different partner, Grace Min of the U.S.

The victory completed a trio of Canadian junior victories this weekend at Wimbledon. Bouchard won the girls' singles title on Saturday, while Filip Peliwo of Vancouver won the boys' singles title on Sunday.

According to Tennis Canada, the three career junior Wimbledon titles for Bouchard are the most by any player in the Open Era.
