Well, she tried. Oh wait, she didn't.

To be honest it was more competitive than the scoreline looked and I'm sure she could have won a few more games if she had a bit more self-belief. She was bossing the brunt of the rallies but ended a lot of them with a silly UE.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Another weak loss in doubles. They appear to have some kind of mental block during Slams.

I would guess "distraction". Ivet does best in front of docile audiences..

The most impressive thing about their doubles match was Barbora's racquet smash at the end of the match.

Wishing Iveta a smooth return. The draw doesn't look too bad at all.

Lost 7-5 6-3. Her season has gone off the rails. There's rumors she's getting married soon.

Semi-retired, more likely. Also a poor dblz showing with Barbora: as seeds, lost 2 1 in R1 to Lisicki/Peng

Lost in Cincy.

Sadly, I think the end is soon. Seems to have lost the inner fire to go on. Wedding, shoulder injury = time to make a baby.
