Erakovic and doubles partner staying together

3:58 pm on 7 June 2014

The New Zealand tennis number one Marina Erakovic says she's sticking with her Spanish doubles partner Arantxa Parra for the year's third grand slam, Wimbledon, which starts in just over a fortnight.

The 16th seeded pair were knocked out of the French Open quarter-finals, beaten in straight sets 7-5 6-3 by the unseeded Dutch-Czech combination Michaela Krajicek and Lucy Hradeska.

Despite the disappointing loss, in which the duo blew a 5-2 lead in the first set, Erakovic believes they've formed a formidable team.

Erakovic will also be in singles action at Wimbledon with the 26-year old to play two grass court tournaments before the start of the grand slam on June the 23rd.
