Huber claims Paris Open Doubles

by | Feb 12, 2007

Liezel Huber and her Zimbabwean partner Cara Black have won the Paris Open doubles title on Sunday, after beating the Czech combination of Gabriela Navratilova and Vladimira Uhlirova in a match lasting less than one hour.

Huber, who has recently made the decision to settle in and take up USA citizenship, is on a streak of wins, having won the Australian Open women’s doubles with Black in Melbourne in January.

The top-seeded pairing cleaned up the tier II Sony Ericsson WTA Tour event, the Open Gaz de France in Paris, conceding only two games in the first set, to win 6-2 6-0.

The two have won 14 of their 16 matches in the season to date, and now leave for the Proximus Diamond Games in Antwerp, Belgium, where Cara Black is a defending champion, having won the 2006 title with then-partner Els Callens.
