Raymond/Huber won their first title since Indian Wells:cheer:
The first set was all holds until 4-3 where Lisa/Liezel had 2 BPs that they lost. 4-4 saw Liezel follow it with getting broken. Hradecka served it out for 6-4.
Second set was ALL Deciding Points and ALL won by Lisa/Liezel for 6-0.
Third set, Lisa/Liezel jumped out to 6-2. 6-3 saw Hradecka through in 2 straight DFs for 8-3. Lisa/Liezel closed it out 10-4.

This is really huge for them IMO this can give them the confidence to go far at the USO, when before this week I thought they weren't going far

So awesome! They needed this so much! :D :bounce:

Yay! :D :D
Well done! The czechs are an excellent team, so this is a quality win going into the US Open.

Much needed win for Lisa/Liezel!! Congrats ladies!! :yeah:

Now, the question is will they defend their title from last year at USO?

^I'd put them as 4th or 5th favorites.
1. Williams Sisters
It's a toss up between Huber/Raymond and Kirilenko/Petrova. Russians haven't played since Olympics. And Huber/Raymond ALWAYS play well at the US Open, particularly Lisa with 5 of her 11 slams coming from the US Open.

Congrats Lisa/Liezel! :D I think I'd put them just ahead of Errani/Vinci, who seem to be going off the boil ever so slightly, in terms of favourites for the title.

Lisa/Liz :yeah: Back to form just in time for the USO :bounce:
