Former world doubles leaders Krejčíková and Siniaková played the semi-finals of the French Open for the first time in 2016, and two years later won the competition and went to the semi-finals there last year as well. Together, they also received a small garrison of the year 2013 in Paris.
In the match against Plesic, they started with a break when Kristina was served, but after losing service to Signac, it was a 2:2 draw. The favourites went to favor again after the seventh game, which Carolina finished with a double fault and Krejčíková steadily completed the preliminary set.
In the second set, the two seeders did not give the opponent a single break ball. They decided to win a clean match given by Karolína Plíšková in 5:4. In the end, she served Krejčíková again, and after serving her, Siniaková got an easy job at the net during the second game.
“We were able to be aggressive. We expected them to do a good service, to come to us, but we did well. We played as a team and it was a good match,” Sinyakova said. You were not surprised that they broke into the world’s top ten in singles Karolina Pliskova twice in the match. “For me, the left wing service (Christina) is difficult to come back, but it was a coincidence. When we were spinning well, we can break it and that way. Somehow we wanted it and it turned out well,” Sinyakova said.
Krejíková and Siniaková played this year’s Australian Open final and won two WTA titles. He won the Gippsland Cup in Melbourne and refereed on clay in Madrid.
The doubles semi-finals have not been scheduled until Friday, and Czech tennis players will emerge from Wednesday’s duel between Polish-American duo Magda Linetova and Bernarda Pyraova, and Russian-Kazakh duo Anastasia Pavlgochenkova, Jelena Rybakinova.
In addition, Krejčíková plays well in singles in Paris. For the first time in her career, she has reached the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam, where she will start on Wednesday from 11am against Cory Gauff of the United States.
