Tamara Kupkova, Anna Laguza, doubles winners, EMPIRE Cup 2015

Two members of the EMPIRE Tennis Academy were successful in the doubles final of the U18 ITF EMPIRE Cup 2015 tournament. Tamara Kupkova and Anna Laguza won against Ukrainian girls Lyven/Shakhraychuk 6-2, 3-6, 10-6, although the were losing in the third set 1-5.

"When we were down 1-5,  we told each other that we won't lose it. And we always believed in it.. When we were winning the tiebreak at 5-5, they were dissapointed and we used it against them. We are glad that we did it and the title is ours," said Kupkova, a member of the club and  EMPIRE Tennis Academy. The idea of playing together was planned by the head coach of the Academy Vladimir Platenik.

For Anna, this ITF doubles title is the second in her career and she is only 13-years old now! She and Tamara have earned 30 ITF ranking points. "It was fine, though I was also nervous, especially at the supertiebreak. Tamara is a great doubles partner. She is a great fighter, that often helped me," added Laguza.
