Well look at that: Kookie wins her first round dblz grand slam match ! Teaming up with veteran Gabi Navratilova, they came back from a set down to Kookie's first ever GS dblz victory. Klara was not playing dblz until 2005 and then only sporadically at slams and some of her favorite tounaments (Ortisei and Ordina). Never seemed to find the hang of it, losing in confusing matches even when being the paper favorites. Who knows, frustration from her AO08 singles draw or may be her expereinced partner made her attitiude to dblz turn around. Be it what ever, congratulations Klara & Gabriela ! Keep on playing !
Kookie choked after taking the first set in 1RD Paris Gaz de France agst Alize Cornet . Now she's off to Chile to a Tier III, outdoor clay with play pals Iveta and Petra C. Best of luck in Viña del Mar, Klara !

I have seen Kookie in Paris, i have seen her match against Cornet, wasn't a bad match but Alizé played very well.
During the matchs of Eva and Vladka in double, kookie was here for cheering both girls!!
