Unfortunately Sara and Roberta didn’t make the final of the WTA Championships. They started their match against Kirilenko and Petrova well, and won the first set 6-1. But in the second set, the Russian team came back strong; they took it 3-6. Like the day before in her singles match, Sara was looking really tired after 2 sets of play and just couldn’t make the final push that was needed to win. Kirilenko/Petrova won the match tie-break 10-4.
Before the match, Sara and Roberta were presented with trophies for being the #1 doubles team in the world in 2012 (you can find the pictures in the photo gallery). If anything, this is an indication that though the last match may have been disappointing, it has been an amazing season!
