ASHLEIGH Barty and Casey Dellacqua have earned a shot at becoming the first all-Australian duo in 35 years to win the Wimbledon women's doubles title.

The 13th seeds reached today's final with a 7-6 (8-6), 6-2 win over the seventh-seeded duo of German Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Czech Kveta Peschke in the semi-finals.

The Australian pair will face the eighth-seeded combination of Taiwan's Su-Wei Hsieh and China's Shuai Peng in the decider.

It is Barty and Dellacqua's second appearance in a grand slam final, in just their fourth tournament together, after they lost in the Australian Open final in January.
