sport news – Tennis: Czech duo Siniakova and Krejcikova win women’s doubles
PARIS (Reuters) – Katerina Siniakova and Barbora Krejcikova claimed their maiden Grand Slam title once they beat the unseeded Japanese pair of Eri Hozumi and Makoto Ninomiya 6-Three 6-Three within the French Open girls’s doubles last on Sunday.
The sixth-seeded Czech wanted simply over an hour to down the primary all-Japanese pair to achieve a significant last.
It was a long-overdue reward for Siniakova and Krejcikova, who captured the junior doubles title right here in 2013.
They’re the primary all-Czech duo to seize the Roland Garros girls’s doubles title since Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka in 2011.
