Today Simone Alipieva/Ulrikke Høyer won the doubles title at Västerås ITF
(grade 4)! Here are the results:
Alipieva/Høyer d. (1) Antonina Lysakova (RUS)/Ann-Christin Nilsson (GER) 6-0 6-2
Alipieva/Høyer d. Isabelle Entenza (SWE)/Kajsa Rinaldo Persson (SWE) 6-7(8) 7-6(4) [10-4]
Alipieva/Høyer d. (4) Hedda Ødegaard (NOR)/Melanie Stokke (NOR) 7-6(5) 3-6 [10-7]
Alipieva/Høyer d. (3) Anastasiya Shleptsova (BLR)/Tatjana Vorobjova (EST) 1-6 7-6(5) [12-10]
They were unseeded; yet they beat three seeded teams. Well done! And a nice birthday present for Simone, who turned 15 yesterday. They weren't quite as succesful in singles; both Ulrikke and Simone lost in the 2nd round. Other Danes played too, but lost i R1. This was Simone's third doubles title at ITF, and Ulrikke's fourth. They're by far the most succesful Danish junior doubles-players in recent years. Future Fed Cup players?
And just to sum up the latest Danish results: A week ago Emilie Francati was the most succesful among the Danish girls playing in Stockholm
(ITF G4). She reached the QF in singles.
