The Czechs were the favorites coming into the match, having won the previous two Grand Slam doubles titles. They did not disappoint, breaking the Americans’ serve four times and winning 78% of their first-serve points.
Dolehide and Collins fought hard, but they were unable to keep up with the Czechs’ consistent play. They saved three break points in the second set, but Krejčíková and Siniaková eventually broke their serve to seal the victory.
The Czechs will now face the winners of the match between the Japanese team of Shuko Aoyama and Ena Shibahara and the Russian team of Veronika Kudermetova and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the semi-finals.
The Czech Republic’s victory was a well-deserved one. They were the better team on the day and they played with great consistency. Krejčíková and Siniaková are one of the best doubles teams in the world and they are proving to be very difficult to beat.
The Americans, on the other hand, were a bit disappointing. They made too many unforced errors and they were unable to break the Czechs’ serve enough times. Dolehide and Collins are a good doubles team, but they need to play at their best to beat the top teams in the world.
The Czech Republic will be the favorites to win the Grand Slam doubles title. They are the best team in the world and they have a lot of experience winning big tournaments. However, the other teams in the semi-finals are all very good and they will be looking to upset the Czechs.
It should be an exciting semi-final between the Czech Republic and the winners of the match between Japan and Russia. Both teams are very good and they are both capable of winning the title.
