Groenefeld/Rosolska Win Volvo Car Open Doubles Title
Doubles veterans Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Alicja Rosolska captured the Volvo Car Open doubles title Sunday, capping off a week in which they did not drop a single set across four matches.
The German-Polish pair were too strong against Irina Khromacheva and Veronika Kudermetova, a first-time team, winning 7-6(7) 6-2 late Sunday afternoon.
While it’s a first doubles title for Groenefeld/Rosolska together, it’s the 21st of Groenefeld’s career and ninth for Rosolska.
Groenefeld/Rosolska had lost a mere nine games in three matches played before the final, where they were tested whole-heartedly by Khromacheva/Kudermetova, who had decided to play together last-minute.
The Russians had taken out both the No. 2 and 3 seeds, but they failed to capitalize on a set point in the first-set breaker and couldn’t overcome their foes in set two.
Groenefeld was making her eighth career appearance in Charleston and reaches the final – and wins – for the first time.
