Kalinskaya/Kuzmova vs Gasparyan/Makarova (By: Khum)
WTA Premier Sankt Petersburg, Doubles
Kalinskaya/Kuzmova - Gasparyan/Makarova
This is an uneven final. Kalinskaya and Kuzmova are both 20 years old and both outside the top100 in women dobles tennis.They got here as beneficiaries of an easy draw, with Bacsinszky searching her way out after losing in singles, a 2nd round against Futures players and a couple of Flipkens and Van Uytvanck where the second one is just casual doubles player.
Before the injury that took her out for almost two years Margarita Gasparyan was not only a rising up singles player, but also a established doubles power, having reached no41 in the WTA rankings. Makarova needs no presentation here, with her many Grand Slams trophies in the doubles game.
These two seem to have found chemistry this week together, playing in front of the home crowd, and they are rolling over the competition.
The gap in quality and experience is too big here.
Except the case in which the russian players will want to prolongue the match for the sake of the crowd, in any professional approach this should be a short straight set win for Gasparyan and Makarova,
Let's go green!
