At this rate, Taylor Townsend may need a bigger trophy case. And soon.

The 16-year-old from Georgia teamed up with Eugenie Bouchard of Canada to win the Wimbledon girls' doubles title on Sunday with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Belinda Bencic and Ana Konjuh.

Earlier this year, Townsend won the singles and doubles titles at the Australian Open.

"This is my first Wimbledon," she told USTA.com correspondent Craig Gabriel. "It really means a lot to me."

Townsend lost 6-4, 6-3 in the third round of the girls' singles draw to Francoise Abanda of Canada at the All-England Club.

Bouchard, 18, won the girls' singles title.
