MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — The top-ranked team of Gisela Dulko and Flavia Pennetta rallied from a set and 4-1 down to beat Victoria Azarenka and Maria Kirilenko 2-6, 7-5, 6-1 for the Australian Open women's doubles title Friday.

It was the first Grand Slam title for Dulko and Pennetta, who made it to the quarterfinals at all the Grand Slams last year and the Wimbledon semifinals.

Dulko and Pennetta, ranked No. 1 and No. 2 among doubles players, were already up a break in the deciding set at 3-1 when they broke again when Kirilenko netted a backhand.

They held in their next service game, then broke Azarenka and Kirilenko again to close out the match.
