Lucie and Beth qualify for doubles in Singapore

Lucie Safarova and Bethanie Mattek-Sands, aka Team Bucie, won their fourth doubles title together on Sunday night in Toronto when they defeated Caroline Garcia and Katerina Srebotnik in a one-sided final, 6-1 6-2. The WTA also announced that Lucie and Beth have qualified for the doubles event at the WTA Finals in Singapore. It’s been an amazing year for the pair who had never played before 2015 but won the first two Grand Slams of the year at the Australian Open and the French Open. They have performed consistently well throughout the year adding a further title in Stuttgart and having just one first round loss at Indian Wells.

Lucie and Beth are the second pair to qualify for Singapore behind Sania Mirza and Martina Hingis, and Lucie is well in the mix to qualify for the singles. At the time of writing, Lucie is at number eight but she will need to finish the year strongly if she is to double up in Singapore. The current race leaderboards can be found on the WTA website HERE.

Obviously i’m biased but they are such an awesome doubles pair to watch! 🙂

Here are some screencaps (from TennisTV coverage) and tweets from Lucie and Beth’s win last night.

  1. How was the match? It seems so odd that Garcia and Srebotnik lost so easily after making such a strong sweep through their draw. They’ve beaten the top seeds Mirza and Hingis on two different surfaces now over the past few months. Yet Safarova and Matteck Stands seem to have them figured!
