Hsieh and Strycova capture the doubles title, then hit the ball



WIMBLEDON, England – Hsieh Su-wei and Barbora Strycova were ready hours before the scheduled start of the Wimbledon women's doubles final, which was planned as the third match in the Central Court on Saturday.

After Simona Halep needed just 56 minutes to beat Serena Williams in the first match on the center court, it looked like they could arrive earlier than expected.

Then, the men's doubles final lasted four hours and 57 minutes. When it came to a fifth set, the tournament supervisors told Hsieh and Strycova that their match was being postponed.

"I felt good yesterday in my practice," Hsieh lamented.

"Me too," Strycova agreed.

They were rescheduled for Sunday night after the men's singles final, a place normally reserved for the mixed doubles final. The mixed doubles were, in turn, relegated to Court No. 1.
