They reminded me so much of Vivi/Paola today. Their lobs were extremely effective in getting the Czechs off balance.

I saw only a few games and have to say that Lucie and Andrea have a loooong way to go to be compared with Novotna/Sukova or Novotna/Hingis or other great teams of the past. Lots of holes in their game, lots of easy errors.
Congrats to Italians :yeah:

Awesome :cheer: :cheer:
Their celebration was amazing:lol: And the ceremony too. :D
Sara: "WE will be number one, not only me." :awww::awww:

:bounce: :hearts: So happy for them!
Sep 9th, 2012, 07:06 PM
Amazing year. :D So proud of our couple :cheer::hug:

Lucie should be ashamed of that performance. The girl with the best serve cannot hold serve. What a farce.
Andi is her usual consistent self and held the team together, some great points as well from her.
Sara/Roberta :yeah: Incredible year continues.

So happy for the Italian girls! They really deserve this! :hug:
Sep 9th, 2012, 07:14 PM
Congrats! :yeah: What an amazing year!
Lucie was disappointing today.

That's how you do it Su-Wei and AMG :rolleyes:
Big congrats to the Italians! ;)
and I'm sure we'll see the Czechs at the YEC.

Too bad they couldn't get a medal... Their year is still amazing though.
What a year for this girls! 3 slams finals, two lost and one lost to Svetlana and a QF lost to GOATS :worship:
Let's take the YEC too :cheer:
Andy and Lucie :hug: Hope you'll make to the final at YEC too :)

Lucie was horrible. Horrible. Had a break point to level it to 5-5 in the first, but Lucie flopped. She had a really bad day. I wonder if it might be due to a rib issue. She was clutching it during the SFs.
Congrats to Errani/Vinci. Secured Best Team of the Year. And their 2nd Slam:cheer:
Lucie hasn't been able to serve or return her last few doubles matches, so I thought it would be tough. They need her serve. I wanted them to win after their Olympics and Wimbledon loss. (I wanted to kick Justin Gimelstob for saying Lucie Hradeckova. He still sucks. He was so dismissive in the whole award ceremony, practically rolling his eyes.)
However, I am very happy for Sara and Roberta. They have had a great season. Well done, ladies!

Tennis Channel is re-showing the match now.
If you did not know it was final you could easity think it was first and 2nd round match.

Quebec VT said than they played like players of 20 years ago.
I'm not sure if it is good or bad.
Sep 10th, 2012, 08:43 AM
So happy for them!

Andy and Lucie :weirdo: Finally a major final without the WS and they still flop. Great for the italians though but the Czechs really should be disappointed with this performance.
Hlavackova/Hradecka won Roland Garros last year (bt. Peschke/Srebotnik, King/Shvedova, Mirza/Vesnina).

I didn't like this team at first... but there are so lovely :hearts: and Sara is sooo sweetheart :kiss:
those words from Sara to Robby :sad: how cute

Thought without the Williams sisters to beat them in another final, Lucie and Andrea would've done it, but no less thrilled for Errani and Vinci.
