The Czech pair of Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka have won the Auckland tennis Classic doubles final, beating singles finalist Flavia Pennetta of Italy and her German partner Julia Georges.

Pennetta and Georges lost in a super tiebreak in the doubles final, which was played indoors under the dome at the Stanley Street complex due to steady rain in Auckland.
