Schmiedlova against Zahlavova-Strycova in the final


The EMPIRE Slovak Open tournament will offer on Sunday at 11AM great battle between No. 2 seeded Anna Karolina Schmiedlova of Slovakia and No. 1 seeded Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova of the Czech Republic. Schmiedlova has beaten Lesia Tsurenko in the semi-final 7-6 (1), 7-6 (5).


Even the Slovak tennis player wasn't satisfied with her performance, she has advanced to the final. "During the whole match I was fighting with my mistakes. There were a couple of times when I threw my racquet, I was nervous. All my three matches before at the tournament were better ones. But the most important thing is that I have managed to controll the end of the tiebreaks," said Schmiedlova. 

"I think that Tsurenko was a little bit tired, but she has produced a good tennis. She didn't do a lot of mistakes. I had to play, I had to end the rallies, what was not happening in the matches before in Trnava. I have had played against players which have had put pressure on me and I just have had to return the balls back," added Schmiedlova, which could be a first singles winner of the EMPIRE Slovak Open tournament in the history.
