Erakovic in doubles action at Wimbledon tonight

3:44 pm on 25 June 2014

The New Zealand tennis player Marina Erakovic takes some good doubles form into her opening Wimbledon doubles match tonight.

Erakovic and Spaniard Arantxa Parra Santonja made the quarter-finals at the Paris Open and won a WTA grasscourt event in the Netherlands last weekend.

Erakovic says their combination eas a bit rough to start, but they are working well together now and Parra Santonja is such a nice person to play with.

They play 12th seeds Anabel Medina Garrigues of Spain and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan first up, a combination they lost to a few weeks ago, but Erakovic feels they're playing better now.
