Van Uytvanck and Friedsam ease into quarter-finals of women’s doubles

Alison Van Uytvanck and Anna-Lena Friedsam had little problems to qualify for the quarter-finals of the doubles tournament in Hobart. In their first doubles match they quickly dispatched Mariana Duque-Marino and Oksana Kalashnikova 6-3 6-0.

Only in the first set the Georgian-Colombian duo could put up somewhat of a resistance. They kept Alison and Anna-Lena busy for 25 minutes. However both women were able to win three games more than their opponents.

There was no stopping Alison and Anna-Lena in the second set. Duque-Marino en Kalashnikova weren’t able to win a single game in the second set. Van Uytvanck and Friedsam’s strong performance was rewarded with a convincing win. The match was already over after 47 minutes. In the quarter-finals Alison and Anna-Lena will play Elise Mertens and Demi Schuurs. The match will be played Wednesday on the West Court at 2 pm local time.
