Victory after years

Victory after years

After almost five years Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Safarova played doubles together again and unlike the tournament in Estoril 2008 they were very successful in the first round of the Qatar Total Open in Doha. They defeated Olga Govortsova (BLR) and Andreja Klepac (SLO) 6:2, 6:4.

During the absence Lucie Hradecka at the tournament in Qatar Andrea made a deal with her other teammate from FED CUP team, Lucie Safarova, and they create a new pair for this tournament. And well-being from the together living in a hotel they brought also to a court. We could not see any bad mood of Lucie Safarova, who just fell out from the singles in this tournament. The seventh seeded pair didn´t give any chance to their opponents.

“It was great! Until a score 6:2 and 4:0 we played fantastically. Then we made a few small mistakes and a wind subtly tampered with us, but we rise to a victorious end. I must commend my fellow worker, she played very well,” Andrea said with a laughing and added: “After several years we aligned our balance together and on Thursday we will put our shoulder to the wheel!” In the next round Andrea and Lucie will play with very experienced pair Cara Black (ZIM) and Anastasia Rodionova (AUS).
