Jelena Jankovic and Agnieszka Radwanska defeated Italians Flavia Pennetta and Francesca Schiavone 6-4 6-3 in the much-anticipated women’s invitational doubles match at Wimbledon.
The legends encounter between two WTA’s most consistent players that ended their careers without Grand Slam titles and two surprising major champions attracted a lot of attention this Tuesday at Wimbledon. Even though Novak Djokovic was playing Jannik Sinner in the men’s singles quarterfinals on Center Court, a lot of spectators showed up on Court No.14 to watch Jankovic and Radwanska win their first round-robin match in Group B of the Ladies’ Invitation Doubles event.
In other Tuesday’s round-robin matches of the Ladies’ Invitation Doubles, Laura Robson and Daniela Hantuchova beat Casey Dellacqua and Alicia Molik in Group B, while Vania King and Yaroslava Shvedova defeated Anna-Lena Groenefeld and Karolina Sprem in Group A. Group A’s Kim Clijsters and Martina Hingis are set to take the court against Nathalie Dechy and Barbara Schett later today.
