I am so glad, because she showed great performance and deserve to be in best four,” said after the game EMPIRE Tennis Academy coach Miloslav Grolmus, who went to San Marino with her. 

Radka Zelnickova beats also French Lola Marandel in the semi-finale 6-2, 6-1 and produced another good performance in the final with Italian Federica Trevisan, but she lost 4-6 6-3 3-6. „The opponent played a bit better, but I liked Radka’s performance. It is a great result overall for her. The first finale. She had a chance to turn the game in the first set. The score was 4-5 and 40-15. She played excellent in the second set, but she lost her service in the third one and it was beginning of her end,” said Miloslav Grolmus after the final.
