Mattek-Sands, however, praised her opponents, who had dropped just one set on their way to the final.

This year, the duo has now won the first two Grand Slam tournaments in the Australian and French Open, as well as Charleston. "It's kind of tough to even look back and to the future to what you could do and what you have done".
