NEW YORK, Aug 30: Kveta Peschke of the Czech Republic and Demi Schuurs of the Netherlands won the women�s doubles title at the Western & Southern Open with a strong performance against American Nicole Melichar and Xu Yifan from China in the final on Saturday.
Peschke and Schuurs, seeded third at the event, took one hour and 18 minutes to seal the victory at 6-1, 4-6, 10-4, Xinhua news agency reported.
�Everything I think came together somehow,� Peschke said. �In the first round, you�re still a little look for each other and trying to put everything together where you have been left off, which is five months.�
�So it was a long time that we hadn�t had a chance to practice, we hadn�t had a chance to play any match. So the first match is obviously, almost at any tournament, one of the crucial ones. So we were fighting the first match through, and I think with every day, we became stronger and better as a team.� � IANS
