Pattaya 2011: Doubles title!

Sara and Roberta have won their 2nd doubles title of the year. In the final of the PTT Pattaya Open they beat Sun/Zheng: 3-6, 6-3, 10-5. This is Sara’s 7th doubles title of her career.

Unfortunately, she was less successful in the singles final, as Daniela Hantuchova won easily in 2 sets: 6-0, 6-2. Sara said after the final that she was tired, and Hantuchova played really fast, so it was tough for her to play her own game. Nevertheless, it was a really good week for Sara, and she said she was really pleased about it.

Thanks to her good performance in Pattaya, Sara moves up to 40 in the singles ranking, and to 31 in the doubles ranking.

This week Sara plays the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, and in the first round she plays against qualifier Zuzana Kucova. If she wins, she’ll face 4th seed Samantha Stosur in the next round.

In doubles, the whole Italian Fed Cup team is up against each other, as Sara and Roberta play Pennetta/Schiavone in the first round.
