Tennis: Czech mixed doubles team loses to the French
France’s mixed duo Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Alize Cornet beat the Czech teammates and couple Petra Kvitová and Radek Štěpánek at the Hopman Cup in Australia on Monday. Tsonga won the first singles match, beating Štěpánek 6-1 6-4, but Kvitová’s singles victory over Cornet left it up to the final mixed doubles match on Monday. The French team seemed to have little trouble beating the Czechs in two sets with the final score 6-1 6-3. The Czech duo won against Spain over the weekend, and will be playing against the Americans John Isner and Sloane Stephens on Friday evening in the final match in their group.
