Too bad Kata & Nadja could not consolidate the chances they had in the 3rd set of the semi. Still this was Kata's 3rd best RG WD result ever (runner up in 2007 & 2010)!
I was in Paris for the 1st week & saw Kata & Nadja's two first matches & one practise. I loved Kata's attitude in both matches. She was so upbeat and positive. In one of the matches Nadja had a rather bad start and was getting mad at herself and it was great to see how Kata's positivity helped Nadja to calm down and start playing much better.

Kata just won her 33rd women's doubles title, beating Niculescu/Zakopalová 6-3 6-3 in extremely windy conditions in Eastbourne. Kata/Petrova are now 3 out of 6 in WTA finals through Eastbourne, just like Kata/Kveta in 2011. And we all know what happened next in that season...
