The first doubles of the year was successful

Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka won the first doubles of the new year. They defeated the 5th pair of the world in final ranking 2012, Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears from the USA 7:6(4), 7:5.

“With Lucie we played together after a long time and it was really hard match. In the first set we were in the lead for the most of the time, but we didn´t win a few set points so we had to gain the victory in a tie-break,” Andrea said.

In the second set Czech couple was losing even 1:4. “We didn´t begin very well, but then we started to fight and took advantage of No-Ad and we managed to turn and win the set. We are happy that we well got going,” she just added. In the next round H + H will play against Alexandra Panova (RUS) and Galina Voskobojeva (KAZ).
