Woodies make it six
Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde
Woodies conquer Wimbledon again
(1) T A Woodridge/M Woodforde (Aus) bt (2) P Haarhuis/S Stolle (Ned/Aus) 6-3 6-4 6-1

Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde swept aside the challenge of Paul Haarhuis and Sandon Stolle to win their sixth Wimbledon men's doubles title.

The Australian duo, who have amassed a record-breaking 60 tournament victories, collected their 11th Grand Slam by winning in straight sets on Centre Court.

This is the last time the Woodies will be seen together at the All England Club.

They will break up after the Olympic Games in Sydney because Woodforde plans to retire.

The Woodies, who won five consecutive All England Club championships between 1993 and 1997, have dominated the world doubles scene for the last decade.

They are just one short of the all-time record of 12 Grand Slam titles held by compatriots John Newcombe and Tony Roche.
