Naomi Broady (San Diego Aviators) celebrated winning her first WTA title April 8, taking home the doubles crown in Monterrey with Sara Sorribes Tormo in an impressive team debut.
Entering the final, Broady and Sorribes Tormo had dropped just 14 games in their first three matches. But the pair was pushed by the inspired duo of Desirae Krawczyk and Giuliana Olmos. Broady and Tormo battled back to ultimately prevail 3-6, 6-4, 10-8.
“I was really surprised because sometimes when you play with a new partner it can take a few matches to get used to how they play and what are their best shots,” Broady told the WTA website. “We have very different games styles. I like to hit flat and Sara plays with more spin but it works really well.”
Broady will play her third consecutive season of World TeamTennis this summer and second in a row with the Aviators.
