- 03 September 2013
Fifth seeded Czech pair, Andrea Hlavackova (RQiS 2 Tour, PTGP125) and Lucie Hradecka, advanced to the quarterfinals of the women’s doubles at the US Open on Monday. They defeated Polona Hercog and Lisa Raymond in straight sets [6-3, 7-6(4)] in their third round match.
The 2012 US Open finalists maintained their excellent form in this year’s Grand Slam tournaments. Having reached the semifinals at Roland Garros and the quarterfinals at Wimbledon, they remain in contention with their stead progress at the US Open. In their next match, Andrea and her partner face tough rivals, the third seeded pairing of Nadia Petrova and Katarina Srebotnik.
Meanwhile, China’s Zheng Jie (EZONE Xi 98, PTGSPN) also advanced to the women’s doubles quarterfinals with Sania Mirza of India, winning a 6-2, 6-3 victory against the No. 6 seeds, Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Kveta Peschke, in the third round.
The junior events have also kicked off, and Belinda Bencic (EZONE Xi, PTGH125) played her opening match in the girl’s singles. With seven service aces and seven winners during the match, she overcame Raveena Kingsley, a local American competitor, with a 6-2, 6-4 win in 54 minutes. Belinda is aiming for her third junior Gland Slam title, following victories at Roland Garros and Wimbledon this year.
Due to inclement weather, the women’s singles fourth round match of Ana Ivanovic (EZONE Xi 98)(SRB) was postponed until Tuesday. Stanislas Wawrinka (VCORE Tour 97) and Lleyton Hewitt (VCORE Tour 97) also appear on court in the fourth round of the men’s singles on Day 9.
