When you win a Grand Slam title, you drink champagne from your trophy, right? 😀 These have been spectacular two weeks at Roland Garros for Lucie Safarova and Bethanie Mattek Sands, as the Czech made a Grand Slam singles final for the first in her career, the American won the mixed doubles title with Mike Bryan, while together they won the women’s doubles event.
And that’s not all! With the 2015 Australian Open women’s doubles title under their belt, which was by the way the first tournament they played together, the duo is now halfway through completing a Calendar Year Doubles Grand Slam. However, Bethanie likes to take it easy and here’s how she responded to the pressure of that possible milestone:
I’m sure everyone is talking about that! But no, I just want to drink champagne out of this trophy, and then we will work our way to the next one. Actually I want to go home before I think about playing tennis anymore! But seriously, we’re taking it one match at a time. That’s the only way.
