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.
