Andrea and Lucie are in the quarter finals!

The Czech tennis duo of big friends is in the quarter finals of Qatar Total Open tournament! Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Safarova defeated in the 2nd round in Doha pair Cara Black (ZIM) and Anastasia Rodionova (AUS) 6:3, 3:6, 10:5.

“The first set was very close, but we managed important moments and got it. On the other hand in the second set we didn´t utilize a leading. Opponents improve their play and they bothered us with their doubles changes of position,” Andrea Hlavackova evaluated.

A last decision had a super tiebreak. “And it came out great! We almost didn´t make any mistakes, played very smart and bravely. That is also why we are very happy about the victory,” Andrea, who met with Lucie Safarova in a pair almost after five years, added.

However on Friday, the Czech pair is expected by the second seeded pair Katarina Srebotnik (SLO), Nadia Petrova (RUS). “It´s one of the hardest team, excellent pair. But we will work hard and equip us against them,” Andrea Hlavackova promised with a smile.
