Krejčíková and Siniaková miss out on women’s title in Singapore but end very successful 2018 as Doubles Team of Year; Plíšková looks to make changes in bid to take first Grand Slam; and Plzeň overtake Slavia at top of table, at least briefly.
Krejčíková and Siniaková miss out on icing on cake after dream season
Krejčíková said she and Siniaková might have done better on the day.
“We didn’t take advantage of the chances we had. Unfortunately those girls are very good, and they outplayed us. It was deserved. We have had a very decent season, and so have they. They’ve played well together. I hope we meet them again next year and that we’re the winners then!”
The two Czechs’ season was very decent indeed, including two Grand Slam titles, the French Open and Wimbledon. The pair ended the year in number one spot and earned the title WTA Doubles Team of the Year.
Plíšková looks to alter game in bid to take major title
“All of the girls are hard to play against. They return, they fight. It’s hard to say if in the future I shouldn’t move closer to the net. I think I’ve improved at the net, which I’m proud of. This week I took a lot of points at the net and it made my life a lot easier. Maybe I need a bit more patience or another plan. Because I’m capable of winning a set, but so far winning two doesn’t work out for me.”
Kvitová content with “great” season
Plzeň return to top spot, but perhaps not for long
Viktoria Plzeň have returned, briefly at least, to the top of Czech soccer’s top flight after a 2:1 win over Slovácko at the weekend. That put the West Bohemians one point ahead of Slavia Prague, who play their round 13 game against Dukla Prague on Monday evening, after the recording of our show.
