Barcelona 2011: no final, Doubles withdrawal

First of all: Happy birthday Sara! Many happy returns! Here’s hoping she had a good day, even though it wasn’t a very good day on the court. Unfortunately Sara lost to Lucie Hradecka. In the first set, Sara was overpowered and she took only one game. In the second set, Sara fought really hard, she got broken a few times, and broke back a few times as well, but eventually she just fell short, and Hradecka won the match 6-1, 7-5.

Sara and Roberta withdrew from their doubles quarterfinal. The official reason isn’t known yet, but Vinci played a really long semifinal in singles today, and she won, so it’s likely that she wanted to rest before tomorrow’s final, instead of playing two doubles matches.
