Doubles Final to kick off Day Six
Saturday’s doubles final sees the world number one pair, Italian duo Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, go up against Japan’s Shuko Aoyama and Renata Voracova from the Czech Republic. Aoyama and Voracova took out Czech teammates Hlavackova and Hradecka with relative ease, 6-3 6-3, yesterday to book their place in the final.
Earlier in the week, Errani and Vinci beat out Julia Goerges and Anna-Lena Groenefeld 6-3, 6-4. It will be a tough ask for Aoyama and Voracova, as they go up against a team that’s arguably been the most dominant over the last several years. In 2014 alone, Vinci and Errani won 5 titles, including Wimbledon and the Australian Open.
