Team Plíšková Reaches Doubles Semifinals in New Haven
Karolína and Kristýna Plíšková have advanced among the best four doubles pairs in New Haven after beating Nadiia Kichenok of Ukraine and Anastasia Rodionova of Australia 6-4, 5-7, 10-5 in the quarterfinals.
Just like in their first match after their doubles comeback the Czech twins had fight in three sets. In the opening set they turned the score around following a lost serve from 2-3 to 6-4, but their opponents tied the match at 1-1 after being better late in the second set.
The third-set super tie-break turned out well for Karolína and Kristýna, mainly thanks to their great serve that didn’t let the Ukrainian-Australian couple into play at all.
