She has one of the kindest hearts on tour…and a punishing single-barreled backhand. In Doha, the latter finally kicked-in at 3-all in the second set of the Championship match. The former was clearly obvious as she celebrated the most signigicant title of her career. Carla Suarez Navarro. Qatar Total Open 2016 Champion.
But she wasn’t done…
Carla then took to the court with last week’s singles champion in Dubai, Sara Errani, to reach the Qatar Total Open 2016 Championship match. While they fell in their first Final as a team, considering the remarkable success both have enjoyed over the past two weeks, there was absolutely nothing to complain about.
