Conde sister make history in FWTT

Anabel & Marta Maria Conde Martinez have made history in FWTT today as they become the 1st sisters to win a title the same day.

Anabel Conde Martinez, who was playing at dothan completed a sensational week defeating Olive Mozzarella & Rosie Ribbons in her way to the final, where she faced Syria Gonzalez. In the final Anabel had to use all her talent to defeat the young countrywoman 6-7 7-6 7-5.

By the way, Marta Maria was playing this week at Canadian U18 ITF Event, where she got both titles, singles and doubles. Marta Maria defeated Moore & world #1 Paterson in her way to the final where she defeated Messay 6-4 3-6 7-6. In doubles, teaming Lucia Ruiz-Garrigues, she got the title defeating Messay/Adeva 7-5 0-6 6-0.

This was the 1st time in the FWTT's history that 2 sisters win a title the same day.

Interview with Anabel Conde Martinez & Marta Maria Conde Martinez

Q: Hello sisters, this was the best week for your family was not?

ACM: Yes, we are all happy, my dad, my grandparents, our sister Ainhoa Arancha, our friends... everyone is happy, so we are.

MMCM: Yes, we still are shocked, we have fought so hard for this and finally we got it.

Q: You always have been a good players, but after you come back both you seem stronger than before your fake dead.

ACM: Yes, when we simulated our dead and then we come back, people didnt understand us. Our careers were been afected by all what was happening around us. So we decide to take a break, to think and to make clear our minds, and then back to give our best.

MMCM: Yes, you know, Anabel is the prettiest player in the tour, the media is all the day making presure on her, so they do with me. We needed to make a break in all that. Our tennis was starting to get worse and worse and we didnt want that. Thats why we took that dramatic decision.

ACM: Yes, but now is when we are showing all the people why we did it and how we were right about our decision, because now we are better people, we are better players then.

Q: Marta Maria has reached both finals in the last 2 juniuors events, winning 3 of 4 titles, while Anabel has reached 3 singles finals in the last month winning 2, and 2 doubles finals, one in charleston, and the other at an ITF where she won.... Which are your next goals?

ACM: well in my case i finally want to break into the top players, you know i get good results in the itf, but i definetely want to focus in the big tournaments and to imporve in my ranking

MMCM: Well my goal is back to #1 in juniors, i think thats the place i deseve and i will fight for it.

Q: FWTT could start a new tour as NCAA, what do you think about it?

ACM: I think its great, our sister Ainhoa Arancha is studiyng but she is also a tennis player. That tour would give her the chance to compete...i think its great.

MMCM: Yes so i think.

Q: Ok thanks amnd congrats for your titles and your record.

ACM: Thanks

MMCM: Thank you.

Well, last year Tami and Kanowan Sugarn won some doubles titles , so I guess you could say that *they* were the first sisters to win a title on the same day (since they did it together) lol

The Conde sisters became the first two win two titles in two different places on the same day :P
