Timi wrote a new chapter to the Hungarian tennis history again! After the three triumphs won among the juniors in 2010, she is now a two time Grand Slam Champion among the pros, becoming the first female player in her country with a double this level! Zsuzsa Körmöczy remained unbeaten in 1958 in singles, and Andrea Temesvári was a Champ in 1981 in doubles (with Martina Navratilova) at the Roland Garros. Timi won the Australian Open last year with Kiki!
The Hungarian-French double survived the critical moments of the first part of the 34-minute first set in a big battle. After 1:1 Kiki Mladenovic saved three break point behind her serve, and soon the hoped-for and expected stage came. Timi and her partner were more confident behind the serves and as receivers, in the sixth game breaking the opponent to 40.
Kiki reinforced the advantage with a great own game, and then Zheng went to serve stay in the set. But then Timi and Kiki already dominated the final and closed the opening act with sensational solutions.
At the start of the second set, the Hungarian-French double was quickly broke, but after 2:0 did not win a rally in her own game. Fortunately, the answer came immediately, with another great broke. Then Timi won her serve from 0-30. Coming soon, at 5:2 the second seeds received for the trophy.
Duan and Zheng won their game saving match points, then Timi served for the championship. The opponent saved the first match point, but after the second chance the Hungarian-French pair could celebrate.
