Double celebration for Lertcheewakarn

Noppawan Lertcheewakarn proved that whatever Serena can do, she can do too after adding the girls’ doubles title to the singles title she collected yesterday to complete a memorable Championships.

The Thai girl and Australian partner Sally Peers raced to a comfortable 6-1, 6-1 victory over Silvia Njiric and Kristina Mladenovic, who tasted a final defeat to Lertcheewakarn for the second time in two days, in just 47 minutes.

Lertcheewakarn, still riding the crest of her victory wave, started very much as she left off on No.1 Court with a series of early winners and her prolific form proved to be infectious as Peers chipped in with some impressive shots of her own.

Their helpless opponents seemingly had no answer to the relentless onslaught and forfeited break after break despite coming armed with Mladenovic’s fierce serve that has been so vital to her progression in both competitions this year at SW19.

Unsurprisingly, the eventual winners came out on top on all vital match statistics, recording just nine unforced errors between them compared with their opponents’ 18.

The second victory in as many days for Lertcheewakarn marks a reversal of fortune in comparison with last year when the 17-year-old suffered defeat in the final of the singles competition to Great Britain’s Laura Robson.
