Fantastic! Andrea and Lucie in the final of the WTA Tour Championships!

Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka will play final of the WTA Tour Championships! The second seed pair defeated Lisa Raymond and Liezel Huber 7:6, 6:1. H+H are looking forward to final on Sunday. In addition Andrea and Lucie could be the first Czech pair in all history, who would be able to win that prestigious championship.

Czech pair was better at the beginning of the match, but they didn´t take a break ball of the opening set to obtain a 3:0 lead. After that Andrea and Lucie had to turn around two set balls which meant a tie-break. In a tie-break H+H were leading 3:0 and 4:1 but again they had to turn around another set ball. Czech pair managed critical moments well. In the second set Andrea and Lucie were better and after one hour and twenty-two minutes of tennis they won this match.

“In first set we felt nervous. The end of the first set was so-so, but the victory in tie-break gave us a self-confidence. Our fans helped us as well and now we believe that after many silver medals in this season we could win a gold medal,” Andrea Hlavackova smiled.

Czech pair will play on Sunday at 13:30 against Petrova, Kirilenko from Russia.
