The dramatic match with a happy ending. Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in the second round of doubles were losing for a long time with a Spanish pair Lara Arruabarreba-Vecino and Lourdes Dominguez Lino, but fortunately after two hours Czech players won 6:7 (2), 7:6 (6), 10:5.

“It was a match with maximum turnovers. In the first set we were losing 1:4, but finally everything was decided in tie-break, which we didn´t handle. In the second set opponents even led 5:1, but we pushed the set into the tie-break again and we won it. And then was super tie-break. We were losing again 2:5 in this super tie break, but then we won eight balls in a row! Perhaps it has never happened to us before! However every victory counts and so we go to the semi-finals,” said Andrea Hlavackova.
