Canadian Gabriela Dabrowski and Luisa Stefani of Brazil are the doubles champions of the 2021 National Bank Open presented by Rogers.

They had a relatively easy time ousting sixth seeds Darija Jurak of Croatia and Andreja Klepac of Slovenia (6-3, 6-4) in only 68 minutes.

The Canadian earned her 10th double titles and third WTA 1000 crown after Miami in 2017 and Qatar in 2018.

Dabrowski and Stefani were competing in their third final this season, after Ostrava and San Jose, and raised their first championship trophy.  

In mixed doubles, the Canadian holds two Grand Slam titles: one from Roland-Garros with Rohan Bopanna and one from the Australian Open with Mate Pavic.

In their decisive victory, Dabrowski and Stefani gained two service breaks in the first set and another in the second. 

The fifth seeds also pulled off the upset of the week when they overpowered top seeds Elise Mertens of Belgium and Aryna Sabalenka of Belarus in two one-sided sets.
