Paris 2013: Doubles title, singles final

Sara and Roberta have won their second doubles title of the year in Paris.

In the final they were much too strong for Andrea Hlavackova and Liezel Huber: 6-1, 6-1 after only 50 minutes.

Earlier today, Sara lost the singles final in Paris against Mona Barthel. It was a close match but Barthel won in two tight sets: 7-5, 7-6.

“Mona serves so well, plays so well from the baseline and physically moves so well – I just couldn’t beat her today,” Sara commented after the match. “I usually like to have more time to place the ball where I want but I was on a limit today, particularly on my serve. I tried my best, but she was just unbeatable today.”

Funny fact: this is the second time in 9 months Sara makes 2 finals at the same tournament in Paris, and wins the doubles final but loses the singles.

The WTA site has posted highlights and interviews from Paris all week. Also, there are some pictures in the photogallery.
