Sramkova was playing in the EMPIRE Slovak Open semi-final, Mihalikova won the doubles

Two members of the EMPIRE Tennis Academy were succesful at the EMPIRE Slovak Open tournament which was held in the TC EMPIRE club from 7th to 15th March. Rebecca Sramkova was beaten 1-6, 3-6 in the singles semi-final, Tereza Mihalikova won the doubles.

Home wild card holder Sramkova was eliminated by Anastasija Sevastova, 2012 edition winner. "I was very tired before today‘s match. It went completely wrong today. I was nervous facing Sevastova. She is more experienced," commented Sramkova after the semi-final.
Sramkova eliminated Czech Krejcikova, then Slovakians Cepelova and Kuzmova. She will be rewarded with 50 points into the WTA ranking for being amongst best four and she moved up to the 259th place in the WTA singles rankings. "Draw was good for me, next week I should be around 250th place in the ranking. I would like to play Wimbledon qualification. I still have one tournament to play in Italy, we will see how I play there. I am happy for those 50 points. I would like to reach top 150 until end of the year, to play next year regularly grand slam qualies," added Sramkova.

Mihalikova won the doubles

Slovakian player has also title from EMPIRE Slovak Open 2016. Tereza Mihalikova is the happy player together with Anna Kalinskaya, they beat Sevastova/Rodina in the final in two sets 6-1, 7-6(4). Mihalikova lost her first round singles match against Sevastova earlier in the week. "I did not consider it as revenge, we wanted to win the match, they were favourites. When we play together with Anna, we are not nervous at all, even if one of us does not have a good day, we support each other. We enjoy it," said happy Mihalikova, who really likes playing doubles.

"I love playing doubles, i tis great fun. I do not mind being doubles specialist. We played four tournaments with Anna, winning all four. We laughed about Hingis and Mirza, they should take us seriously. They won 41 matches in a row, we still have some wins to make to match that," she added with smile.
