Re: IW FINAL: (6) Chan/Hingis d. Hradecka/Siniakova 7-6(4) 6-2

Martina and Latisha were down an early break in the first set, pretty sure they also saved two set points in the first set. Hingis was broken at 5-5, Hradecka served at 6-5 to take the first but Latina were able to fight back.

Great start to their partnership - they seem to team well and complement each others game. Make a good team.

Re: IW FINAL: (6) Chan/Hingis d. Hradecka/Siniakova 7-6(4) 6-2

Invisible bagel in the second set.
They won on deciding point three games in a row from 2-2. Really clutch on important points...also 7/7 on BPs
First title in forever for Legend. I am glad about her new choice of partner. Hope Latisha can finally win that elusive doubles slam now, too. She deserves it!!

What a day for Swiss tennis with this and Roger and Stan both moving to the men's singles final

I have come to life again with this result

Saving 2 or 3 straight setpoint in 1st set. I was quite unsure about this partnership at first but now

WHOAAA congrats to Martina and Latisha, incredible fight and victory, well done girls for winning your first title !!! I'm so happy, this is also Martina's first title since Rome last year, just fantastic And to think we were losing hope on this partnership not so long ago, they really proved to be a great team this week, not losing a set and beating 3 very good teams in a row 3rd career IW title for Martina, keep it upp

Re: IW FINAL: (6) Chan/Hingis d. Hradecka/Siniakova 7-6(4) 6-2

I thought Hingis/Chan were a bit flat at the beginning of the match. They could of been experiencing a bit of a letdown after their dramatic win over the #1 seeds in the semifinal. Serving at 40/40 in the first game Hingis/Chan dropped the deciding point. Right from that moment I knew the first set was going to be difficult. Glad they hung in there to pull out the first set.

Chan seems to cover Hingis well on the court. Compared to CoCo and Sania, Chan is a more solid player (doesn't go on prolonged cold streaks) - CoCo and Sania tend to be flashy but "streaky" players. I think Martina is the kind of player that benefits from a solid player like Chan - because Martina herself can at times be a streaky player (letting the unforced errors creep in). I think that's what happened when Martina and Sania fell apart. They lost their consistency with too many unforced errors. So now Chan is a good "stabilizing" influence on Martina.

IMO while Hradecka had some nice winners - overall she was under par and dragged her team down in the final. IMO she had the worse match of the four players. Siniakova is a young gun and hits with good power. She is only twenty years old and already a very good doubles player. Her future looks bright.

Team Latina
Glad the split with sis Hao-Ching has paid off for Yung-Jan and Martina finding a steady stabilising doubles partner as her form this season was not good till now
