Andrea Hlavockova and Lucie Hradecka, the unseeded Czech team, won the French Open today by defeating 7th seeds Sania Mirza and Elena Vesnina 6-4, 6-3. Hlavockova and Hradecka--who also took out the 2nd, 3rd and 6th seeds--did what most winners have done at this tournament: They managed the wind.
This was Vesnina's third loss in a major final. The most memorable of her losses, I suppose, was the 2010 Wimbledon final, in which she pretty much had to play the whole thing herself because her partner, Vera Zvonareva, came unglued after losing the singles final. Vesnina and partner Victoria Azarenka were the runners-up at the 2009 French Open; they lost to Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual.
Hradecka, by the way, is a rarity on the tour, as far as singles go--she has a huge serve and hits a lot of aces (18 in one match is her record, I think), but does not have a high ranking.
