|Andrea Hlavackova, Lucie Hradecka (Czech, 7)-Tímea Babos, Kristina Mladenovic (Hungarian, French, 4) 6:2, 6:1|
“It’s amazing that Kristina was injured in the first game…After that, she practically could not move … This one obviously can not afford against the world’s best doubles. I’m so sorry. I hope that Kristina will be better in the next match” – said Timi.
It was a very poor performance by Timi and Kristina Mladenovic in the Singapore debut…They served and received weakly, they played with many errors at the net and from the baseline.
The match began with two quick break, and with the injury of Mladenovic. She’s got a thigh strain, and their chance was over…
In the first, 38-minute set Hlavackova and Hradecka won four games in a row after 1:1, and had two set point as a receiver. Mladenovic managed to saved that game, but the Czechs finished the opening act in the next game.
The second set brought no change.
Timi won her service game at 0:4, but after that, they had no chance. Hlavackova and Hradecka lost only one rally in the next two game. At the end they broke Mladenovic to 0…
