Hlavackova/Hradecka playing a 50K tournament

I have never seen something similar, they are 4th and 5th in the doubles ranking. There is no reason to play this event,a 50.000 challenger in the states.

Re: Hlavackova/Hradecka (CZE/CZE) playing a 50K tournament

Why not? Their singles result has been absymal and their doubles result were also pretty bad. Furthermore Kops-Jones/Spears and IIRC Grand/Uhlirova are playing this tourney too.
There's nothing else for them to play this week and it should be a pretty nice prep. for Charleston, as this tournament is played on Green Clay.

TT Comeback, Title Count:
Singles: Indian Harbour Beach '16
Doubles: Launceston '16 (w/Tim.), Indian Harbour Beach '16 (w./Ivanovic_fan), Saint Gaudens '16 (w/Tim.), Ikley '16 (w/Tim.)
Rank: 126 // 99

Agree. They're form has been dire since the AO and they need the workout. Hopefully they will get in shape for the FO as it's usually one of their best tournaments.

Re: Hlavackova/Hradecka (CZE/CZE) playing a 50K tournament

Im not talking about singles, it is okey for them but dont think that playing doubles is right, this is a 50k is hardly a preparation for FO winners

Players like Errani, Vinci, Garcia Vidagany already twetting about this.

Re: Hlavackova/Hradecka playing a 50K tournament

Re: Hlavackova/Hradecka playing a 50K tournament

I'm sorry but how on earth can someone like Garcia Vidagany complain about not getting into the doubles draw in Osprey when she's played a grand total of four doubles tournaments in the last 52 weeks?

I have to agree that they do not need to play doubles. Singles, I can go with.

Re: Hlavackova/Hradecka playing a 50K tournament

Is there some form of resentment between Errani/Vinci and Hlavackova/Hradecka?
I accept they are rivals on the court, but why is Errani getting involved it's not like they are going to take the number one ranking from them by playing ITF's.

It's weird but if this can help them to find their form again I'm fine with this.

They cannot even win a match these days, why not playing some 50ks?
