Anyway, congrats for yet another title of course
It makes sense to me. Smith was a very hard 1st Round it seems. She would have had to run a lot which not only is not Anett's strength but if he toe is still annoying her it would be impossible. She got an easy draw in Doubles here. She can focus more on it when she has lost early in Singles which she did. There is less pressure in Doubles so she doesn't choke. She is playing with friends which is just fun. Finally, her game is actually pretty well suited for Doubles. Decent serve, excellent return, great backhand, good forehand and decent volleying.
