I hope Sushu can beat them again but I am afraid Kuznetta is playing better now they have some experience together.

The Czechs are not in good form this year. both in singles adn doubles

Two former top 10 players coming back from injury finding form in doubles as a pair? We will see!

Great win

The Czech duo have not been good for a while now...

Did Kuznetsova win this title in doubles in the past?

Given their form, I'm actually surprised it was this close! Not sure what's wrong with Andrea's serve. It used to be the best aspect of her game but she was broken six times by Duval and she was broken both times in the first set.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan
