Lisa/Cara won I think 7/5 6/2, something like that.

Cho/Schiavone played a hellavu first set.

Thank you. If anything other than a blank window ever happened when I clicked on it I would give you loadsa rep points too - but anyway thanks.
I was wondering why Francesca isn't a top-line doubles player - she has the variety, a sometimes strong serve and the speed and quite likes the net and might look really good alongside a big strong server?

Thanks.

She's a very good doubles player. I think sometimes she tries to just smash the sh!t out of the ball too often , but other than that, she's really well skilled in doubles. Even when she was losing today she was laughing, joking, and making everyone laugh. You gotta admire that.

Cho was a very good partner and Francesca said that she felt most comfortable with her. I don't think Cho ever got mad at anything. Really laid back player. Apparently, it's their first time playing together. Francesca just needs a steady partner perhaps.

Thanks for the news of the doubles result! Congrats to Cara and Lisa but also congrats to Francesca and Yoon Jeong, runners-up in the first tournament they've played together!

Yes, I can just imagine Francesca from your description, having seen her playing doubles (with Adriana Serra Zanetti) at Wimbledon this year! They were 2/5 down in the third set and Francesca was leaping all over the court, having such a great time saving several match points! Every time she saved one she really extended her grunt and made everyone laugh, she really looked like she was having fun! Even though they eventually lost 4/6, Francesca was still smiling!

It sounds like it was a fun match to watch. Thanks for your report, jojoseph.

Yoon-Jeong has won several $50K in doubles in the past. I think she has had problems recently playing both singles and doubles, because of the difference in her singles and doubles rankings.

But after this event, I hope to see her play doubles more often . A couple of tournaments like that and she should be able to.

I am just afraid she will run out of power if she does well in both.
