For the third time this year, Sara and Roberta are in a Grand Slam final! In the semifinal they beat the Spanish duo of Llagostera Vives and Martinez Sanchez in two sets: 6-3, 6-2. Their opponents in the final aren’t known yet – it will be either Hsieh/Medina Garrigues or Hlavackova/Hradecka. The US Open website has a nice article about the match.
Earlier this year, Sara and Roberta lost the Australian Open final, but they won the Roland Garros final, so they’re 1-1 for the year. They’ve also won 6 titles other than Roland Garros.
Of course there has been a lot of attention in the press for yesterdays quarterfinal. Ubitennis has posted articles from the Italian press, an audio interview with Sara and an interview with Pablo Lozano and Francesco Cina, Sara and Roberta’s coaches. Federtennis has also posted several (video) interviews.
Finally, of course there are also a lot of new pictures from the US Open in the photogallery.
