Hingis-Lisicki vs Makarova-Vesnina by Tennisguy
This is the final from the double's category of the Miami WTA tournament between team Martina Hingis/Sabine Lisicki and the team Ekaterina Makarova/Elena Vesnina.
These teams as they are ha never met before in a h2h match. The main reason why that hasn't happened is because Hingis just made her comeback this year in tennis in the doubles category. She is teamed up with Lisicky who she also coaches so there's definitely some good chemistry going on there.
Makarova/Vesnina is a well known team with some good results in the past but also with some strange losses to much weaker adversaries. They are a tad unpredictable but overall they are a good team that can challenge the best of the best. To get to this final they defeated the following teams : Martic P./Erakovic M, Groenefeld A./Goerges J., Rodionova A./Kudryavtseva A. and Spears A./Kops-Jones R..
Hingis/Lisicky even if they are a new team they have that good chemistry that makes a doubles team really good. They showed that in this tournament where they managed some very good wins against top double teams. They defeated Hlavackova A./Safarova L., Cirstea S./Pavlyuchenkova A., Shvedova Y./Medina A., Mirza S./Black C.. With the exception of the Shvedova Y./Medina A. where they had to play a super tie-break they won all their matches in easy fashion.
Lisicky is know for being one of the hardest servers in the WTA circuit which will mean easy points and if we add the great Martina Hingis to the mix that makes for one exceptional double team. The odds look really good for team Hingis/Lisicky and beacuse they already managed to easily defeat two teams that were favorite to get to this stage (Hlavackova A./Safarova L. and Mirza S./Black C.) I really like their chances here in this final.
