Lucie and Nastia reach the Stuttgart final
As Safarova will end her career very soon, this was the last time that she was competing in Stuttgart.
The team Safarova-Pavlyuchenkova unfortunately lost in the finals against Mona Barthel and Anna-Lena Friedsam (6-2, 3-6, 6-10). The ceremony was very emotional for Lucie and Nastia as it was their last tournament together.
Lucie won one of her very first doubles title with Nastia, back in 2012, in Charleston. She already achieved great results in Stuttgart 2015 when she won the tournament with Bethanie Mattek-Sands.
