Lucie & Bethanie win Stuttgart and become #1 on the race to Singapore
They did it again : Lucie & Bethanie just won their second tournament together by capturing the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart.
Saving the only break point they faced, Safarova and Mattek-Sands won the final in straight sets (6-4, 6-3) against Garcia & Srebotnik.
When asked why their partnership is so successfull, Bethanie replied “Lucie are really good friends, and that’s a big part of doubles success (…) the communication out there, having fun, getting through the ups and downs easier (…)”
After the match, Lucie added: “It’s amazing. It’s such a nice event. I’m just so happy to play again with Bethanie. We have a great time on the court and off the court, and it’s just a pleasure.”
With this new title, Lucie and Bethanie will now be the No.1 team on the Road to Singapore doubles leaderboard, passing Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza.
