H+H were defeated in the final

Hlavackova and Hradecka´s dream about victory disappeared. After losing titles at the Wimbledon, the Olympic Games and the US Open they lost also the final match at the WTA Tour Championships. Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova were better and won 6:1, 6:4.

The opponents were playing without any mistakes and the Czech pair won first game when the score was 5:0. Andrea and Lucie took the opportunity to go to the dressing room after the first poor set. It was good for a while. The Russian pressure was lighter, but then H+H lost their service. Unfortunately the Czech pair didn´t take any service from Russians and they were defeated after one hour and twelve minutes.

“We made more mistakes. The Russians didn´t allow us anything. Still we were enjoying the WTA Championships and all the time in Turkey. At least we have a motivation to the next season. At the moment we are thinking about Fed Cup. We trust we won´t be the silver again,” Andrea Hlavackova hoped. She will move to Prague from Istanbul, where she´ll be in training for Fed Cup final against Serbia.
