Barbora Krecjikova, the flaming Roland Garros champion in singles, also established herself in doubles with Katerina Siniakova after beating the duo composed of Iga Swiatek and Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the final in straight sets 6-4 and 6-2. The unbelievable streak of the 25-year-old Czech continues, and does not stop breaking some records.
With this triumph, Krejcikova became the first to win a double at Roland Garros since 2000, when the French Mary Pierce had succeeded. Impressive.
On the other hand, The last tennis player to have won the same Grand Slam in singles and doubles was Serena Williams, who achieved it at Wimbledon in 2016 after beating Angelique Kerber in singles, while with her sister Venus she was consecrated in doubles.
This incredible statistic is further increased when you consider that Krejcikova (along with Serena Williams, Venus Williams and Samantha Stosur) is one of four active tennis players to win a Grand Slam trophy in both singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
Of these four tennis players, Krejcikova is the only one to achieve it in the same season– In addition to his singles and doubles titles at Roland Garros, he also won the mixed doubles title at the Australian Open this year.
In this way, the Czech, who a year ago was out of the Top 100 in singles, confirms her great present on the circuit.
