Rome PHOTOS: Hsieh and Strycova claim doubles crown, Halep and Pliskova make singles final

Top seeds Barbora Strycova of the Czech Republic and Hsieh Su-Wei of Chinese Taipei claimed their fourth title of the season at the Internazionali BNL d’Italia with a 6-2 6-2 win over Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany and Raluca Olaru of Romania. The doubles team now boasts a 21-1 win-loss record in 2020, as they’ve also won titles in Brisbane, Dubai, and Doha prior to the coronavirus hiatus.

In singles, Romania’s Simona Halep advanced to the final with a three-set victory over fellow Roland Garros winner Garbine Muguruza of Spain, while defending champion Karolina Pliskova joined her later on Sunday with a confident win over fellow Czech Marketa Vondrousova.
