Excellent! Andrea will play finals and semifinals!

This year´s US Open will belong between the most successful in Andrea´s career. Thanks of the victories in great matches she will play the finals of the mix and after that also the semifinals of doubles!

Exciting duels during this Wednesday decided about it. Firstly Andrea and Lucie defeated the third seeded pair of this tournament, Russian Nadia Petrova and Slovene Katarina Srebotnik. “The doubles was incredibly narrow and intensive! We played almost three hours. I was very happy because it was for the first time when I defeated Petrovova,” Andrea Hlavackova said after winnings 4:6, 6:4, 7:5.

A two hours break followed and then for the first time in her career Andrea tried to play a semifinals of the mix. Together with an experienced buddy Max Mirnyi from Belarus defeated a pair Kristina Mladenovic (FRA) and Daniel Nestor (CAN) 7:5, 6:7, 12:10. “Kristina and Daniel are very good players and well coordinated pair. They were already in finals of French Open and won the Wimbledon. However we were able to manage the match after two hours of exciting game. We had a match point during the score 7:5 and 6:5 but we won another one in supertie-break,” Andrea added.

On Thursday she focused mainly on rest. “It was kind of marathon during Wednesday… I was trying to relax a lot and also spend some time on the massage and with my physiotherapist. On Friday I will play another two matches. Firstly the finals of mix and later semifinals of doubles with Williams sisters in the evening. It will be very hard work, but I´m very looking forward to both matches,” Andrea added. The finals opponents in the mix will be pair Abigail Spears (USA), Santiago Gonzales (MEX).
