Barty & Dellacqua Among Doubles Winners
Published June 30, 2014 12:12
Barty and Dellacqua converted on four of six break points compared to just one of eight for their opponents, and fired 10 winners compared to two for Date-Krumm and Zahlavova Strycova en route to a 6-4, 6-2 victory that improved them to 13-2 on the season.
Barty and Dellacqua have proven more adept on grass than any other surface. Their 14-2 grass court record includes the title at Birmingham last year, a runner-up showing at Wimbledon last year and a runner-up showing at Birmingham this year.
"Good win today with Anna-Lena, but now it's all about soccer," Goerges tweeted prior to Germany's quarterfinal World Cup game against Algeria.
Second round matches underway but suspended until Tuesday saw the Kichenok sisters up a set but down a break against second-seeded Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, and seventh-seeded Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears on serve in the first set against Alizé Cornet and Caroline Garcia. One third round match got started, with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Lucie Safarova up a set and on serve in the second set against Flavia Pennetta and Samantha Stosur.
