AO R2: Kimiko/ParraSantonja def. (2)Hlavackova/Hradecka 75 36 63



really LOVE this team!! They played amazingly well... while Andrea and Lucie where error machines...

Aga, Angy... look at Kimiko. She's 42 (+/- 20 years older than both of you), she was on the 3rd round of singles, as both of you... but she respects the doubles discipline. Larn, please

Kimiko, Arantxa keep going!

She was replaced by a hi-tech japanese robot!

I lost count of how many sitters Hradecka missed at the net. Neither of them played that well though. A deserved win from Arantxa/Kimiko.

Andrea and Lucie's seeding and ranking were created under the special Olympics pair up last year so expect them to fall against veterans. I don't see them in YEC this year with all these regular teams back and no mid swaps for country practice. On top of that, the Williams are apparently playing full GS doubles season and players like Cara Black are back to take down seeds.

Congratulations to Kimiko and Parra Santonja!

Czechs were so pissed. Glad they lost, Andrea shouting at the crowd and Hradecka almost blowing Kimiko's head off with a smash

Arantxa & Kimiko keep going girls!

This is certainly a tournament Kimiko is going to remember for the rest of her life. She is playing with such confidence right now. It was amazing how early she was taking the ball today, her passing shots were just lethal. Cool new team this KDK/APS.

I wouldn't necessarily go that far. Singles comes first for the WS which will dictate their doubles schedule and while they're a good team, I'm not sure Black/Rodionova is a YEC team. And besides which, some of the new pairings such as Kirilenko/Raymond and Huber/MJMS might not work out. Granted I'm not expecting them (or Errani/Vinci for that matter) to be as good this year but it's a bit early to write them off but they definitely need to play better though.

This is the first time in Kimiko's career (not second career, her ENTIRE career) that she has advanced to the third round in both singles and doubles in the same Grand Slam tournament!
