The representative of “Top Five” agency, pairing with her fellow-countrywoman Barbora Krejcikova, triumphed in doubles at Wimbledon and became the first player for the last fifteen years who got two consecutive victories at Rolland Garros and Wimbledon during a year! Katerina and Barbora defeated Kveta Peschke (the Czech Republic) and Nicole Melichar (the USA) in the final: 6-4 4-6 6-0.
“When we went on the court, we were expecting it’s really tough match, it’s a final. I think it doesn’t matter if it’s first one or second one, it’s still the final. You’re just fighting to win the title,” Siniakova said after the match. “I think it was really tough, especially leading first set, then losing [by a] break in the second very early. We were just fighting to come back. At 4-5, they were serving really well, then I lost the serve,” Krejcikova assessed.
Five years ago Siniakova and Krejcikova also triumphed in doubles at Junior Wimbledon and now they’ve become the first pair ever which managed to win the Wimbledon trophy on both junior and professional levels. Tomorrow, on 16 July, Katerina Siniakova will also improve her personal best rank in the WTA ranking and will become the World No. 2 in the doubles ranking.
We congratulate our player with this success and wish her many more victories and accomplishments!
