H + H didn´t repeated last year´s entry into the new season

Last year Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka started the season at tournament in Auckland, which they won, but it is not the same this year in Sydney. In the semifinals they were stopped by Nadia Petrova (RUS) and Katarina Srebotnik (SLO). Czech pair was defeated by Russia and Slovene 6:4, 6:3.

One year ago H + H defeated in the semifinals Srbotnik and Kvetoslava Peschke in the New Zealand. But Slovene tennis player with a new partner won return match this year. Opponents of the second seeded pair famously served, managed three breakballs. They lost her service just once and after 74 minutes they gained the victory. In the final they will play against world pair n. 1 – Errani, Vinci (ITA).

“This time we didn´t managed it. On Friday we are moving to Melbourne, where Australian Open will be drawn. I´m really looking forward to this tournament and its whole atmosphere and I hope for success,” Andrea Hlavackova said.
