New Haven F: (1) Old Ladies def. Czech Beauty and (Doubles) Beast 4-6 6-0 [10-4]

Raymond/Huber won their first title since Indian Wells

The first set was all holds until 4-3 where Lisa/Liezel had 2 BPs that they lost. 4-4 saw Liezel follow it with getting broken. Hradecka served it out for 6-4.

Second set was ALL Deciding Points and ALL won by Lisa/Liezel for 6-0.

Third set, Lisa/Liezel jumped out to 6-2. 6-3 saw Hradecka through in 2 straight DFs for 8-3. Lisa/Liezel closed it out 10-4.

Yay.

This is really huge for them IMO this can give them the confidence to go far at the USO, when before this week I thought they weren't going far

Now, the question is will they defend their title from last year at USO?

Re: New Haven F: (1) Old Ladies def. Czech Beauty and (Doubles) Beast 4-6 6-0 [10-4]

^I'd put them as 4th or 5th favorites.

1. Williams Sisters
2. Hlavackova/Hradecka
3. Errani/Vinci
4. Huber/Raymond
5. Petrova/Kirilenko

It's a toss up between Huber/Raymond and Kirilenko/Petrova. Russians haven't played since Olympics. And Huber/Raymond ALWAYS play well at the US Open, particularly Lisa with 5 of her 11 slams coming from the US Open.

Congrats Lisa/Liezel! I think I'd put them just ahead of Errani/Vinci, who seem to be going off the boil ever so slightly, in terms of favourites for the title.
