Brengle and Babos



(4) Madison Brengle (USA) and Timea Babos (HUN) def. Aravane Rezai (FRA) and Karolina Pliskova (CZE)
6-4 6-3


It was a much tougher match than what the scoreline suggests but Madison and Timea played out of their skin today to defeat the team of Aravane Rezai and Karolina Pliskova in straight sets. Even though the match almost lasted for 2 hours, Madison and Timea looked completely in control from the beginning, racing to a 5-2 lead and even though they lost the next 2 games, they looked completely comfortable in their first final, really showing how they could be a dominant force on the ART tour. It was a gutsy performence from the young Czech and the talented Frenchwoman but ultimately it was not enough to stop the on-form duo of Madison Brengle and Timea Babos. A hard fought battle and a well earned victory.

Sprem


Karolina Sprem (CRO) def. Johanna Larsson (SWE)
6-3 3-6 6-4


Both players have had an amazing week but today it came down to who could hold their nerve and that person was Karolina Sprem. Her mental attitude was second to none today, really focusing on every point, not allowing Johanna to break her down and find a rythm. Both ladies played an amazing set each and the last set came to 4-4 with Johanna crumbling on the big points, not being able to convert on her 1 of her 4 game points in the ninth game of the decider. With this break sealed, Karolina served a love game out for the match, finally breaking Johanna's resistance with 3 aces and a jaw-dropping forehand drive volley into Johanna's backhand corner. Johanna didn't look too disappointed afterwards, she is playing some of the best tennis of the season now and it'll be interesting to see where she can go from here. Karolina is a player to watch out for, she is solid in all areas and gives nothing away to any of her opponents, she is the Minsk champion and potentially a grand slam winner down the line if she keeps on improving and keeping in form like this week.
